August 2014

The Canadian Senior Women's National Team is currently competing at the ISF XIV Women's World Championship, which is taking place from August 15-24 in Haarlem, Netherlands.

The Canadian Junior Men's National Team competed at the ISF X Junior Men's World Championship in Whitehorse, Yukon last month, finishing in 7th place.

The Home Run Sports Men's Slo-Pitch Border Battle was held last month in Kitchener, ON and was a big success that was well received by all who attended!

Before travelling to Haarlem, Netherlands for the ISF XIV Women's World Championship, the Canadian Senior Women's National Team competed in two events, winning the silver medal at the General Tire World Cup of Softball and the bronze medal at the Canadian Open Fastpitch International Championship, as well as an exhibition series.

Softball Canada is looking for Host associations/communities interested in bidding on International Softball Federation (ISF) World Championships in 2018 and 2019.

The following are the results from all completed 2014 Canadian Championships as well as participation numbers for all upcoming 2014 Canadian Championships. Please note that results were taken from the Pointstreak Statistics Program on each Championship’s individual website. A complete and final report of results will be available in September. Congratulations to all teams, and best of luck in the upcoming Championships!
