As Spring is in the air, ignore the white stuff still on the ground and picture being on the ball diamonds later next month. Kemptville Legends is a softball league started last year for ladies in our community. As a parent, it is hard to find the time and finances to include sports and fun times for ourselves, but rolemodeling this for our kids is equally important. The Kemptville Legends had a successful, fun season last year. Keeping costs to an absolute minimum, so that it is affordable to fit into your budget after kid-related expenses for many, is no easy task. Having to start a league from scratch last year, including new equipment, bases, shirts and everything else was only possible because of our 2017 sponsors, Saltastic, To Be Continued, Herbal One, Motortrendz, R. Rose Automotive, Conquer the Unhealthy You, and O’Reilly’s Fitness Centre. Kemptville Legends is very thankful they could help out so ladies could have an affordable night out.
Registration is ongoing. Every skill level is welcome – the teams are balanced with some ladies who played when they were kids and still want to play if their bodies will still co-operate, some youth that have aged out of minor leagues, and some beginners who want to learn the sport and have a fun fitness night out with friends. If you can’t commit to every week, you can also register as a spare.
Registration is now open for the 2018 season, which runs early May to late August. Games will be Monday nights, either 6.30 or 8.30 pm. The fee is only $100 if you register before April 1, and $120 if you register after that date. You can just stop in to Saltastic in Kemptville for in-person registration, or get the form from Kemptville Legends Facebook Page. For more information, you can email [email protected].
Ladies – take some time for yourselves this summer!
