OLDER POSTS: 

Hello to all!!

Great registration numbers this year! Season is a go, and first meet & greet/practice will be this Monday April 14th at Seylynn park in North Vancouver. You will learn what team you are on, be given a jersey, meet the executive,  your team members and have a little practice, so be sure to bring your glove!

If weather is lousy, we will still meet to assign teams & hand out jerseys, time is 6:30pm. For regular season games, rainouts will be called by 4:30pm on day of game, and will be posted on this website, (home page and weather page). If there is nothing posted by 4:30, you are required to show up for games. It will then be at the umpire's discretion to call the game due to weather.

To those who are new to the league, Seylynn Park is where we play all games, and it is located at Mountain Highway & Fern Street. Parking is at the south end of the park off Hunter street, as parking is not permitted by the little school/rec center at the north side.

Thank you to all who have registered, and just to remind you, cheques will be going through this week.

See you on Monday!!

Congratulations to the Black Team as Playoff Tournament Winners, beating Navy team in a neck-and-neck nail-biting final by one run at the bottom of the 7th inning.  Great game. Purple Team (combined forces of Light Blue and Red) didn't advance after the Round Robin, but gave both Black and Navy excellent games.  Congratulations to everyone - hope you had fun.  

Thank you to all our Players for their support this season, and especially to our Captains who kept their teams organized, hauled equipment, set up fields, and ensured that our benches were full.

Still have your jersey?  Please watch for e-mails with instructions on how to return.  We need them all back please.  

Lost & Found:  If you think you may have left something in your team equipment bag (bat, glove etc) that is yours personally, please contact us immediately at nvwsl@yahoo.ca.  Once the equipment is stored it will be difficult to retrieve any items.

Thanks Ladies - see you on the field next season.  Please continue to recruit friends and neighbors who would like to join us next year.  Our challenge to you:  Bring at least one new player to the NVWSL!

July 24th, 2012

Playoff schedule is now posted (see "Playoffs").  Because of limited player availability, it was decided that we can only hold a 3 team tournament.  Red and Light Blue will combine their forces on a team called "Red & Blue".   Format for playoffs will be Round Robin (each team will play two games, and the top two teams based on Round Robin results will play in the final). Details of tie-breaker rules will be available at the tournament.

Please arrive at least 1/2 hour before game start time.  Teams will flip for Home and Away.

Please bring a change of clothes so you can hand in your jersey at the end of the day. 

If you are not playing in the tournament, please make every effort to return your jersey to your Captain before the tournament.

Please use street parking and do not park in the parking lot adjacent to the recreation center or school.

And bring your loonies, because we'll have a small concession stand available for your enjoyment! See you on the field on Saturday!

Well, the rain is still coming down!  Games tonight are cancelled due to field conditions.

However, the good news is that we will start our League Social at the Black Bear Pub at 7:00 p.m. tonight - an extra hour to celebrate a great season!  

If you are not playing in the tournament next weekend, please ensure that you bring your jersey to the pub tonight (or get it to your Team Captain this week) as all uniforms must be returned to the league by the end of the playoff tournament.  Thanks everyone!

July 9th, 2012:    

Wind-Up Tournament Survey

Please talk with your Captains - they will need to know your availability to play on:

Saturday, July 28th

Sunday July, 29th

and if you'd prefer the Wind-Up Tournament to be a Saturday only event, or a Saturday and Sunday event*.   

*A one-day tourney would be Saturday only double knockout, with seeding based on regular season standings. The two-day version would consist of round robin on Saturday with re-seeding for double knockout on Sunday.

Thanks!  The end of the season is approaching quickly!

CANADA DAY LONG WEEKEND
