Softball Manitoba Category Change for 2021 Season
Softball Manitoba has restructured their divisions to create a stronger performance pathway which will give more athletes the opportunity to play at a high level
A - Club level, formerly B
AA - New level to introduce High Performance
AAA - High Performance, formerly A
The new regional boundaries divide WSWYSA players into one of three AA and AAA regions, depending on each player’s address. Smittys Terminators, Manitoba Angels, and Central Energy.
What does this mean for your daughter?
If she wants to play club level (A, formerly B), and have fun with friends, nothing will change. Our local community centres will be hosting teams as they have in the past.
If she wants to play more competitively, but not the commitment that AAA requires, AA tryouts take place within each Softball Manitoba designated boundary in May with teams competing after the community club provincials. All athletes must play club level to participate. This level also acts as a bridge to prepare for AAA tryouts.
If she wants to play the highest level in the province, AAA tryouts take place in September with teams forming shortly after and practicing year round. Regional clubs associated with WSWYSA are Smittys, Angels, and Central Energy, depending on the home
address of each player.
