Applications are open for coaches in Zone 6 and 8. The zone teams must have a minimum of two female coaches. At least one male and one female coach will have to be fully Trained at the Community Softball level in the NCCP.
To apply, coaches will need to submit a coach portfolio complete with their coaching background, NCCP number and two reference letters from their local softball association. They must be at least 18 years old at the beginning of the Games.
Selected coaches will have to submit a Police Records Check, Vulnerable Sector Check as well as complete Respect in Sport for Activity Leaders if they have not already done so.

Am I eligible to try out?
To be eligible for a Zone team, a player must be registered through an approved affiliation process for the current softball season to a team at the U15 B, C or D level and must confirm their residency and citizenship. Any female players who meet the affiliation requirements and are under 15 years of age prior to January 1, 2023 (born in 2008 or later) are eligible. The minimum player age be 13 as of July 23, 2023.
Why is the Alberta Summer Games for U15B players?
Softball Alberta would like to continue taking part in the Alberta Summer Games. Most Zones cannot field an ‘A’ caliber team and if we do not have at least four of the eight Zones represented with Zone teams, softball would be removed from the Games. The pool of U15 B players is much larger across the province and should result in all eight zones being represented.
