Competitive Softball, Ages 8-18
The Representative program is the most competitive level of softball KMGSA has to offer. Teams are selected through open try-outs that are held every year in September after Labour Day. There are 5 different age groups within the Klassics program; Mite (U10), Squirt (U12), Novice (U14), Bantam (U 16) and Midget (U18).
The Klassics participate in the Grand Valley league which is made up of teams from the surrounding cities (Guelph, Waterloo, Cambridge, Stratford, London, Brantford etc). In addition the teams can participate in a number of tournaments throughout Ontario, Quebec and the US throughout the season. At the end of the season the teams participate in the Ontario Provincial Championships where they can qualify to attend the Eastern or National Championships.
If you love softball and have that competitive drive and are willing to put the work in, then try-out for a team in the fall. We also invite everyone to come out and watch the Klassics in action. The season begins in May and ends in early August with the Klassics operating out of Joe Thompson Ball Diamond (Bridge & Lancaster).
