The Ponytail Softball League (PSL) is a U9-U11 developmental softball league that runs during the month of August. Only A ball players born in 2012 or later will be allowed to play as Ponytail is used as a progression to next seasons rules.
The PSL tries to create teams with players/coaches from the same region to keep softball closer to home and reduce the travel time to attend practices. If locally there appears to be insufficient players to form a team, the PSL will assist by linking players/coaches with other teams looking for additional players. Each player will still register individually through Softball Manitoba, but during registration the player would identify the team/coach they wish to play for. PSL will take registrations, collect fees, organize a schedule and book facilities.
The mandate of the PSL is to expose players to additional development and skill training in a relaxed, fun, full participation, non-competitive environment. The ideal coach would have completed NCCP Community Softball, have some coaching experience and good teaching skills. PSL play commences once Provincial A Championships have completed. PSL is open to players, regardless of skill level, born in the years 2012-2015.
The PSL is planning 4 - one day (Saturday only) tournaments, tentatively scheduled for:
August 5 - Steinbach
August 12 - La Salle
August 19 - Buhler, Winnipeg
August 26 - Portage la Prairie
All players must have previously registered with Softball Manitoba and participated in a community/association league during April to July of 2023.
The $100.00 registration fee includes entry to the four tournaments and a keeper t-shirt.
