Welcome to the Hespeler Minor Softball Association (HMSA).
We would like to extend a warm welcome to all current, returning, and prospective players and their families. As a not-for-profit organization, the mission of HMSA is to promote and encourage good citizenship among the players of the Association. We strive to establish and promote an active interest in softball for ages 3 through to 18 regardless of ability. Our league encourages sportsmanship and fun for all divisions while teaching players technical softball skills and the rules of the game. With the commitment of the players, families and volunteers, we are certain you will have a terrific season!
Our house league divisions provide a safe, active environment where youth learn the game of softball while making new friends and having fun!
Hespeler Minor Softball is an inclusive organization, and we make every effort to include all youth regardless of ability or special needs. If you have a special needs youth, please contact us today.
The information below is for the 2023 season.
*** PLEASE SEE OUR REGISTRATION TAB FOR THE DIVISION THAT APPLIES TO YOUR CHILD ***
Players in the Mite, Squirt, Peewee and Bantam divisions will attend an Evaluation Day to assess their skills and ensure that all teams are evenly divided
Players hit the ball from a stationary "tee" and run to a single base that honks as the player jumps on it. This division is an absolute riot!!!
Players hit the ball from a stationary "tee" and are introduced to the basic learning skills of throwing, catching and hitting while also being taught the standard rules of softball. Fun and learning are the focus in this division.
Coaches pitch to the players in this division while the focus is still on batting, throwing, and catching. Standard rules of softball apply and more rules get gradually introduced to accommodate the age of the players. Fun and learning are still the focus.
Players are introduced to pitching in this division and will pitch to their opposing teams. More of the standard softball rules are implemented such as stealing bases while the presence of umpires is also introduced. Fun and learning are still the focus with a bit of a more competitive feel.
As players develop their softball skills they are encouraged to try all the different positions on the field. Focus is on learning a more detailed approach to the game both offensively and defensively. All skill levels are welcomed.
This combined division still focuses on skill and learning with teams being equally composed of each age group. Players may typically find their ideal fielding position and develop their skills in this area. Stealing home, drop third strike and infield fly rules are present in this division as well as no other softball rule restrictions.
