Warman and Martensville are proud to announce their new Squirt – Midget Girls Softball Partnership taking effect this coming 2014 season operating under the name of the Twin City Angels.
With participant numbers growing to approximately 350 between the two centers for the 2013 season, the consensus amongst both Associations was to combine their programs providing the opportunity for teams to compete at both the A and B levels at the Squirt, Pee Wee, and Bantam level. To date, all teams entered by the two communities have participated in the Saskatoon League, but unfortunately each year, athletes from Warman and Martensville have played in other communities due to skill level or lack of athletes in certain age groups in their own community. This new partnership will create consistency from year to year allowing A and B level teams to be entered minimizing the shuffling of participants.
In 2013, Warman had several Martensville kids on their Squirt Girls A team and Martensville had several Warman girls on their Pee Wee Girls B team both of which won their respective Provincial Championships! This success helped solidify the mindset that the partnership would produce teams competitive at the A and B league and provincial levels.
The goal of this partnership is to develop a stronger player and coaching program locally to minimize the risk of having our local athletes seek out other Softball programs in the area. We believe this will increase interest in playing the sport of softball that will last well into adulthood. This partnership is an exciting new endeavor which will allow the Squirt to Midget age groups a consistent place to play each year.
Twin City Angels will be hosting player evaluations starting in late January. These player evaluations are being held for female athletes born in 2003 and older. Information regarding these events will be posted on association websites and Facebook pages and emailed out to all registrants in these age groups.
Warman and Martensville Softball Associations are excited about the new partnership program and are looking forward to the support from our communities as well. The Warman Boys Softball program will not be affected by this partnership; it will continue to be successful as in previous seasons.
