Our rep teams have been practicing on our softball fields for a couple of weeks now, following Softball BC's guidelines and abiding by DFA's safety plan, and are now clear to move on to phase 3, where they are now allowed to have games within our community.
For details about Softball BC's RETURN TO PLAY GUIDELINES, please visit the following website: https://softball.bc.ca/softball-bc-return-to-play-guidelines-and-appendixes/back-to-bases/
We have put together a safety plan to provide our members with guidelines and protocols for a safe return to play and to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Please read the following document and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Registration for Rep players is OPEN, while we continue to work on a Return to Play plan. If you are not registered yet, do so ASAP, as you need to be registered with Softball BC to be able to participate in softball activities.
While following the mandates and recommendations from health authorities and Softball BC, we have had to make the unfortunate decision to cancel our House season. We look forward to seeing our House players next season.
Registration for our Fall Classic Tournament is OPEN.
For health and safety reasons, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the following tournaments have been cancelled and registration fees have been refunded:
B-Icebreaker, A-Icebreaker, A-Celebrate Spring , U19A/Senior A Open, B-Delta (U12B, U16B), B-Delta (U14B, U19B)
Please allow a couple of weeks for refunds to be processed by SportEngine and your bank, as things are currently slow at their end.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Congratulations to the 2020 high school graduates, recipients of the Delta Fastpitch scholarships: Sydney Geboers, Emma Williams and Gabi Isaak! Best wishes on your new adventures!
Thank you to all who attended our Annual General Meeting on November 5, and congratulations to the members recognized by Softball BC for their volunteer work during the previous year.

We had a fantastic opening day on a beautiful sunny day. After the parade of athletes (from LTP to U19) and opening ceremonies, Delta Mayor George Harvie threw the first pitch to officially open our 2019 softball season. The younger kids participated in fun competitions, led by the U14 and U16 girls, and had a blast at the bouncy castle.
To wrap it up, there were hot dogs and drinks for everyone. Thank you to all volunteers who made this Opening Day a successful event. Let's play ball!
