AMSA Softball and You

Ayr Minor Softball is developing programs in accordance with Softball Canada's Long Term Player Development Plan (LTPD).  For more information you can view the full guide or the condensed Parents Guide on our LTPD page.

Please check out the Player Development pages for information on how we are teaching the skills of the game.  We are working hard to ensure that players receive consistent instruction throughout their playing careers with AMSA and we will also be making this information available to you.

New in 2016 - AMSA Bat Policy
AMSA will no longer be purchasing new bats for teams.  We will continue to use our existing inventory to supply our teams.

How do we get there???  Here is a link to a google map showing all parks that our teams will visit as well as the surrounding hospitals...just in case.
