Does your child want a more competitive softball experience? Why not try out for our Brantford Diamondbacks Select teams? See the chart below for our tryout dates. If you aren't sure whether it's right for your child or not, come out next Sunday to our Indoor Facility for a Select Workout. Talk to the coaches and see if it might be the right fit. Check out our website for the division times.
Softball Canada has some new rules that will affect our play this season. All players are now required to have a batting helmet with a cage installed. If you have a helmet already, you can purchase a cage to fit your helmet at several different sports stores in town. If you visit Brant Sports Excellence and say you are with BMSA, you'll get a discount.
Pitchers in Squirt and below will also need to wear a pitching mask if they wish to pitch this season.

game cancellation policy
Just a reminder that games are only cancelled by BMSA when our permits for the diamonds are pulled by the city of Brantford. This is usually due to weather issues. If our permits are not pulled, BMSA is still responsible for payment to the city for the parks so the games will not be cancelled. Should games get cancelled you will be notified via email and a message will be posted on this page and on Facebook.
