The season runs from early April and until the end of June. The South Vancouver Island (SVI) Minor Fastpitch Association U16 Division has three Tiers: C (Recreational), B (Competitive) and A (Highly Competitive). In 2023, Carnarvon Fastball plans to offer U17B Fastpitch Softball.
In U17, there are usually 1-2 games per week. Practice schedules vary from year to year and depend on field and coach preference, but in the past there have been 1-2 practices per week depending on the number of games that are scheduled.
In Spring 2023, U17 is for players born in 2006 and 2007. It is possible for younger players to join, if space is available. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to request your younger child play at this level.
Assessments maybe required depending on registration numbers.
We will make every effort to accommodate any friend or coaching request, no guarantees can be made. Priority will be given to past Carnarvon players first, then on a first come first served basis.
Players will receive a team uniform shirt and a hat that they get to keep at the end of the season (there is no uniform deposit). Please ensure that they wear it to each game. Players are required to wear black ball pants.
- batting helmet with a strap and cage
- cleats (recommended, but not mandatory, baseball or soccer cleats are fine)
- infield face guards for pitchers (recommended for all players)
- black ball pants
Please ensure that you mark the player's name on everything. A white label or masking tape works well on the outside of the batting helmet and handwritten on labels in shirts, glove and hats.
