Softball Organizations / Overseeing Bodies


Softball in Canada is an extremely popular sport played with different rules, different equipment and is run by 3 major overseing bodies. These organizations have 2 purposes. One is to set a standard of gameplay across all of their territory as well as to offer proper insurance to cover its members. Leagues can choose to register with any of the 3 organizations according to which organization better suits that league. Ottawa is also home to the Softball Canada head office which is the National voice for softball (both Fastpitch and Slopitch) in this country
