As with most sporting organizations Softball Canada has moved to age categories, not named categories.  U9 will be the old Tyke and will be the first age group that participates in GBMSL league play. The U7 group will be a hybrid of T-Ball and Coach pitch depending on the skill level of the participant.

What is the advantage of registering early?
'Early Bird' registration runs during the month of February, and has 3 primary benefits.  Firstly, a $25 discount on registration fees.  Secondly, spots are generally reserved on a first come, first served basis.  And finally, we are offering the following that have limited space
> Refunds for Bingo Volunteers
> Discounted Price on custom bat pack / bag
> Pre-Registration for pitching & hitting clinics

Who gets registration priority?
Spots are given out on a 1st come 1st served basis within the following priority groupings:

Priority #1 - Players who played last year in Hillsdale and registered within the 'Early Bird' time limit.
Priority #2 - Players who did not not play in Hillsdale last year but registered within the 'Early Bird' time limit.
Priority #3 -Everybody else

Where will our games and practices be?
Home games will mostly be in Hillsdale, Waverley, Elmvale, and Phelpston.  Away games will be at any of the other towns within the GBMSL.

How many players will be on a team?
Our ideal number for U9-U21 is 12 kids per team.

Will you have only 1 team per division?
We are willing to have multiple teams in each division if there is enough interest. 

If there are multiple teams in a division, how do you divide up the players?
Siblings will be placed on the same team, and from there players will be divided in such away to ensure both teams are competitive with each other.

How do your wait lists work?
When players register the 1st 13 will be guaranteed a spot on our 1st team.  Players 14-21 will be placed temporarily on a wait list, until 22 players have registered, at which point we will form a 2nd team of which the 22 players registered will be guaranteed a spot on 1 of the 2 teams.  That process will continue with us having no less than 11 players on a team, and no more than 13.
