Edmonton Softball Leagues
If you are interested in joining an adult softball league, here is a list of Edmonton softball league organizers in the community.
Edmonton Area Mixed Slo Pitch Association
“The Edmonton Area Mixed Slow Pitch Association (EAMSPA) was incorporated under the Societies Act on September 24, 1987, but, in fact has been in operation since approximately 1981, making it one of the oldest leagues in the Edmonton Area. At the height of popularity, the league boasted a membership of 72 teams (9 divisions of 8 teams each) but in recent years has hosted between 42 and 48 teams per year. One of the founding principles of the league was that it be “fun” and this value remains a common theme today.
In the beginning, the league did not have paid umpires, meaning that teams were required to umpire their own games. As the league grew, so did its “sophistication” and umpires eventually became part of the mix. We are currently the largest user of City diamonds and Umpires, which requires careful planning and budgeting.”
South Edmonton Slo-Pitch Association
“S.E.S.P.A has been around for 30+ years as a Slo-Pitch League, now offering 4 divisions of play, allowing a place for all skill levels. We are an SPN based League and offer a 7 guy, 3 girl split play, rotating play on a variety of south side fields.
Teams play a minimum of 25 regular season games and are invited to 3 tournaments that are all included in the $1000/team registration fee.”
South Edmonton Mixed Slo-Pitch League
“[T]he South Edmonton Mixed Slo-Pitch League (SEMSL), [is] a fun league that has been running for many years in the Edmonton Proper area. We started our roots under another name (ITSL) but have grown into our own as the SEMSL. We play a fielding game of Slo-Pitch, every Thursday night, starting in May and ending in August. Our Diamonds are primarily south of the river, as is the case of the SEMSL name itself.
We are a fun league as stated above, mixed, with a 7-3 ratio of men to women. We do encourage competitive play but in an entertaining, safe, and over fun manner. We all have lives outside of the league and hope our teams respect that above all else – safety and fun.”
“Southside Slo-Pitch is a recreation level 32 team mixed (6/4) slo-pitch league. Our games are played at 4 centrally located diamonds in the City of Edmonton. Our diamonds are Donnan, Maurice Lavallee, Ottewell and Hazeldean.
We have two divisions of 16 teams. Division 1 plays Mon/Wed and Division 2 plays Tues/Thurs. There is no difference in caliber between the two divisions. Teams ump their own games. The season usually starts towards the beginning of May and goes until the beginning of August. Half the season, teams play a double header on one of the two nights of their respective division, the other half of the season the games are split between the two nights.”
Edmonton Restaurant Slow-Pitch League Association
“E.R.S.L.A. was founded in 1982 by Glenn Jackson. Glenn organized 6 teams who got together and created a fun league for Hospitality Industry staff. Games were scheduled on Sunday afternoons as this was the day most industry staff does not work.”
Edmonton Ladies Softball Association
“All games are played at John Fry Park in Edmonton with the exception of the Ice Breaker Weekend in May which is held at Lede Park in Leduc. Our league is open to U16 up to masters 35+ teams. We offer 3-4 divisions: Competitive (A division) to recreational. Our league starts in May and runs into early August.
All teams in this league are club teams who are responsible for filling their rosters (and responsible for own tryouts and fee collection). We have one annual meeting in the fall. All games are officiated by E.D.S.U.A. umpires.”
Edmonton Rec League
“[Edmonton Rec League] is a co-ed recreational sports league offering a variety of sports to choose from. Joining ERL is a great way to stay active, have fun with friends and meet new people at the same time. ERL offers a line-up of leagues on several nights with various skill levels, ranging from rookie to intermediate.” The organization offers co-ed adult softball leagues during the spring, summer, and fall seasons.
Edmonton Sport & Social Club
“The ESSC was established in 2004 and has been providing adults with the best co-ed, multi sport experience ever since. The ESSC has grown to host over 4,400 teams each year, serving over 78,000 Edmontonians. With year-round leagues, tournaments and events for adults, there are so many ways to get in the game! ” The organization offers co-ed slo-pitch softball leagues.
