(Ottawa, ON) Softball Canada will be holding its Senior Men’s National Team camp this weekend (June 12-15) with members of the athlete pool competing in a few exhibition and intrasquad games in Southern Ontario. A total of 40 players have been invited to participate in the camp for the opportunity to represent Team Canada at the IX Men’s Pan American Softball Championship, which will take place from October 25th until November 3rd in Parana, Argentina.
The athletes will arrive Thursday, June 12th for two doubleheaders of intrasquad games at 6:00pm and 8:00pm at the South Fletcher’s Sportsplex in Brampton, ON. The following day, they will travel to Six Nations Park in Ohsweken, ON for an afternoon youth clinic with local minor association players before taking on the Hill United Chiefs at 6:00pm, followed by a Canada Black/Red game at 8:00pm. Admission is $5.00 per person, with seniors and minor ball players wearing their team shirt admitted free. The Hill United Chiefs will also be offering a webstream through their Ustream Channel: www.ustream.tv/channel/hillustream.
“Softball Canada’s Men’s National Team welcomes the opportunity to visit the Six Nations area and play against one of the top club teams in the world” said Mike Branchaud, Softball Canada’s Manager – National Teams and Canadian Championships. “We will have 40 players at our Ontario camp so our intrasquad games in Brampton and two games in Ohsweken will be a great opportunity for our players to wear the national team colours and compete for a spot on our Pan American Championship roster.”
The Canadian Senior Men’s National Team will then return to Brampton for another pair of intrasquad doubleheaders at 2:30pm and 4:30pm at the South Fletcher’s Sportsplex on Saturday, June 14th.
