there will be a default if the team is not fielded with the proper amount of players by start time (7) - therefore it is critical that you arrive 15 minutes early to warm up and ensure that your team does not default
Complete the form, attach a cheque, payable to Goulding Park Minor Softball and deliver it to the Goulding Park community centre and either slide it under the hockey door office, or give it to one of the custodial staff who will put it in the office or give it to the snack bar or slide it under their window or you can deliver/mail it to the UPS on Yonge just south of Patricia on the east side in the Tim Horton's plaza.

Goulding Park Minor Softball also offers for registered players, of all ages, except the Tyke Division a free softball clinic, which teaches children the basic fundamentals of softball, such as throwing, catching, etc., depending on the division the child. A partner is required. This is clinic starts in October until April. Once your child is registered he/she may start immediately in the clinic.
The first week of play, is actually an evaluation week. The first week there will be 4 groups for each division, for evaluation purposes only, the children are randomly put into these groups and evaluated based on the elements of softball for that division and rated by a number. Then 2 members of the Board, not involved in the rating, look at the numbers of the children and put the teams together based on division, keeping in mind pitchers for the divisions.
It is one park 2 diamonds, therefore car-pooling is a non-issue during the season, unless the children are siblings or children of coaches. The second week is still an evaluation week where the convenors have the opportunity to ensure that the teams are balanced. The only difference is that these are now teams and balanced by averages, so movement is more difficult. One of the convenors duties is to ensure that the division is balanced so he/she may up to 3-4 weeks make changes in the best interest of the division.
The Goulding Minor Softball Board of Directors is a small committee of 7 members plus 3. We are a not-for profit organization. We give our time and dedication to your children. Some of us don't even have children playing anymore. We have been volunteering on the board for as little as 2 years up to 26 years.
We are asking parents to please step forward and volunteer to help. If you're not available for the season then please consider helping during the pre-season when most of the work is done. We hold one meeting a month In January, February and March. In April and May we increase the meetings to two times a month, to every other week and finally once a week.
The time will come when we the current and older members will eventually stop volunteering. We need you to continue the league's commitment to our community.
Please let Zubin, Trish or Rachel know if you're interested in joining forces with us.
Thank you for your time.
