Teams and league designation will be decided the following way:
The goal is to have 4 or more teams to form a local Grassroots league, with all games in Sherwood Park and local area. In addition to these teams, based on parent feedback, there will also be one addtional team playing in the Greater Edmonton Minor Softball Association. If 44 or more players are registered at the deadline, this will be the format.
If less than 44 players are registered, then 3 teams will be formed (one A, one or two B) and all teams will play in the Greater Edmonton Minor Softball Association. Please note approximately half of games will be played in Sherwood Park, with the remainder being in Edmonton and surrounding area.
