2013- That's A Wrap

Another fine year of Softball wrapped up on Father's Day weekend.  After a year where all divisions had closely matched teams and a thin margin between winning and losing, the tournament presented an opportunity for a lot of teams to have a shot at first place.  In Squirt division, Claytons was able to again finish on top as they were able to fend off a surging Hemstreet team.  Sophia and Brenna pitched head to head and stumped the hitters- only in the 5th, where both teams used another pitcher did the hitters score a chunk of runs.  Final score: Claytons defeats Hemstreet 12-11 to take 1st place.  Remax defeated Star-Tek in the consolation game to finish 3rd.

In PeeWee, the favourite, BC First Aid, was not able to finish 1st as they had in league play, as they were the first team eliminated in the modified double knockout format.  Gibsons Building Supplies played a spectacular game to eliminate BC First Aid and had only a brief 20min rest before trying to carry that momentum into the final game against Flemming & Sombrowski.  Pitchers for both sides kept the game close until the 5th inning when GBS appeared to 'hit the wall' and struggled to make defensive plays as F&S bats awoke.  Flemming & Sombrowski were able to steer the game home and win 17-8 to take first place.  GBS finished second even with rotating 3 pitchers that were in their first year of pitching in the PeeWee division.  BC First Aid had a great year, finishing first in league play and the round robin, but the timing for two sub-par games could not have been worse, as one poor day cost them a chance at winning the tournament, as they finished 3rd.

The Bantam final was everything you want... Top notch pitching, good hitting and superb defence.  If that's not enough, let's throw in some extra innings!  Brennan and Kenny pitched head to head and kept the game close, as it was 3-1 for the Inlet Raiders going into the 5th.  In the 5th, however, BA Blacktop bats came alive and were able to take a 4-3 lead.  Raiders found a way to get a run to tie it and set up extra innings and 'International Tie Breaker' came into effect.  Under this rule, teams start with the last batter from the previous inning on second base.  Kenny and his Raiders were able to shut BA down and prevent the run from scoring.  Which opened the door for James' heroics...  starting on second base, he was able to advance to 3rd and set up a dramatic steal of home on a pitch that got to the fence... giving the Inlet Raiders an 8-7 win over a favoured BA Blacktop team.

Challenger ball and The MiniMite/TBall kids were also around on the final day to remind all of the enthusiasm and fun that games should be played with.  The league and tournament would not be possible without the generous support of our community sponsors, umping crew, volunteer coaches, the many volunteers, and especially the endless commitment of board members Lennea and Colleen, who consistently go above & beyond to ensure a quality league and that tournament is a special experience for our young athletes.  Our Board needs help to continue putting out a quality product- with more help, there will be less volunteers nearing burnout, a broader knowledge base for when kids/families are done the sport, and an enriched sporting community for the youth on the Coast to continue participating in.  Contact  info@secheltminorsoftball.ca

AGM and Skill Clinics just around the corner

With the frost settling in, and snow creeping down the mountain, what better time to start thinking about the upcoming Softball season?!  SMSA will be holding its AGM Wednesday, January 23rd at 7pm @ Sechelt Learning Centre.  Our league continues to be a great place for youth to participate in healthy sport, but it relies on volunteers to organize the season.  Please consider joining our Board- this will help ensure the year end tournament runs smoothly, and the long term health of the league.  We strive to keep meetings to a couple times a month in the months preceding the season, and our team is very supportive with a wealth of knowledge to share.  If you have any questions in advance, please feel free to email or call the number below.

Also, in 2013, we will be holding a weekly skills clinic at Sechelt Learning Centre gym.  Starting Jan 15th, each Tuesday from 6:00-7:30pm we will work on various skills of the game, and each evening will dedicate at least 20 minutes to developing pitching.  Other skills include: overall athleticism, Speed/Agility/Quickness, bunting, fielding, throwing, base running and hitting.    If you are interested, please email Randy at  coachrandy@dccnet.com or call 604-885-0373.  This will allow for communication should a session be cancelled.  (Randy is a trained Level 3 Softball Canada coach, and Certified in Softball Competition).

BANTAM Division

   The Bantam Final had Flemming & Sombrowki face off against BA Blacktop.  Behind the strong pitching of Kenny Tyson (BA), and Brennan Mayers (F&S), the game was tied 0-0 in the 5th inning.  Jeremy Poulsen was at the centre of the ´Butterball´ turning point, as he hit a Grand Slam to secure the 9-1 win and the MVP award.  Shane White received the MVP award for BA Blacktop in the loss.  In the consolation game, BC First Aid squeaked by GBS to finish 3rd in the tournament.

PEEWEE Division

PEEWEE Division

The PeeWee final was a nail-biter, as perennial juggernaut Inlet Raiders squared off against the upstart Dryland Marine team.  The game was a close one and Inlet Raiders held the lead until the late innings, but Zack Phillips (MVP) complemented his excellent pitching with some clutch hitting to take a 2 run lead into the last inning.  Raider MVP Kordell Vaughn also pitched well, and was impressive at the plate, but his team could not complete the comeback.  With the tying run at the plate, and only 1 out, the Raiders fell short, as Dryland Marine executed a great double play- getting the batter running to 1st, and the baserunner trying to get home to end the game.  In the Consolation game, Sechelt Plumbing put aside a season where they struggled and made sure they won their last game of the season by defeating Coast Reporter.

SQUIRT Division

The Squirt Division saw LavTech Computers cap off a perfect season, as they defeated a surging Clayton´s team in the final.  The tandem of pitcher Jacon Chabot and catcher Lydia Harvey-Lloyd proved overpowering throughout the season, and the tournament.  Clayton´s were able to keep it close with the strong pitching of Megan West, but in the end LavTech walked away with a 15-9 victory.  In the Consolation game, Dave Hutt Contracting made short work of the struggling, but infectiously upbeat Canadian Tire team.  
SQUIRT Division

Tournament Weekend

     Another great season has wrapped up and the hardware has been handed out.  Thanks to all the great players, parents, volunteers and the supportive community for making a great season.  Though the Canucks Stanley cup run and the fall weather wreaked havoc on the league, teams persevered and were able to develop as the season unfolded.  All led up to an exciting weekend.  In the Bantam division, Marsh Landscape took 1st place after defeating league champions Flemming Sombrowski.  Sechelt Plumbing won the consolation game to win 3rd place.
     In PeeWee, the Inlet Raiders were able to win the pitching battle between Mayers and Hemstalk by squeaking out some late runs for a 5-1 victory over Popeye´s.  Paul´s Painting Place put together a strong weekend to finish 3rd after being last in the league standings.
     Another Cinderella story happened in the Squirt division where Canadian Tire was able to defeat league champion Clayton´s in the final to finish 1st after being last in league play.  Stockwell Sand & Gravel took home 3rd place honours.  Kudos to all the coaches that were able to manage a wide range of abilities as there was a 4 year age span in the Squirt division (included mite players).
     Enjoy the summer and see you all next spring on the ball field!!!
SFU Clan hits Sechelt for Clinic

SFU Clan hits Sechelt for Clinic

Friday night Mike Renney and his SFU athletes were sharing their wisdom with local players.  It was a beautiful night as an enthusiastic group of "10 and unders" were put thru the paces of a free skills clinic that included throwing, fielding and base running.  Meanwhile, a second group were learning and refining their pitching.  A productive evening of instruction wrapped up around 8:30 and the SFU Clan headed off for dinner and rest.

Saturday was another day of fun and learning.  The SFU girls took athletes through the paces.  The morning started with a thorough warm up of Dynamic stretches and some speed exercises.  Then the 3 groups rotated through stations of throwing, hitting and bunting.  The day was filled with stations dedicated to skills of the game:  receiving the ball, infield fielding, outfield fielding, baserunning, sliding, speed drills and running technique.  Renney finished with his always popular ´Egg Toss Challenge´!  Athletes were competing to see who could get furthest apart and still exchange the egg with a throw to their partner.  Some of the eggs had been hard boiled, so individuals could challenge an egg if they thought a pair had a free pass with the unbreakable egg.  Some of the challenges were wrong however, and the challenger had ´egg on their.. head´.
With that, the SFU Clan was off to the ferry, home for a brief sleep, then on a noon flight Sunday to China.  Thank you Mike, Bryan and SFU women for a wonderful clinic!
