We are South Vancouver Island's largest Minor Fastball club providing our youth athletes a positive and rewarding environment for Fastpitch competition, development and fun.
Our divisions range from Learn to Play (U6-U8) to U19 in levels from beginners to competitive B. Our goal is to support our youth with pride and lead with faith in their ability to grow as young adults through our great sport.
We are the home of Langford Lightning and we welcome you to become part of our great Association.
We are sending this note out to make all members aware of a recent series of vandalisms at our park. The porta potty near the tennis courts has been vandalized twice in the past two weeks, with the first resulting in a $200 charge to the Association for cleaning, and the second (fire damage) resulting in an as-yet unknown charge to the Association as well. As a result, we will be asking Coast to remove the porta potties from both the area near the tennis courts and outside of Spencer school. We simply don’t have the resources to keep paying charges for damage caused by vandals.
There have also been at least three instances of vandals trying to set the actual washrooms near the concession on fire. Burnt toilet paper was found in them a week or so ago, again during the tournament this past weekend on Saturday morning, and then Sunday evening after the conclusion of our U12 tourney, a fire was set in the men’s washroom that was significant enough to require fire department response and closure of the washrooms, and to result in a smoky smell in the concession storage room. For now, the washrooms are closed and the City has set up two porta potties outside of them, and we don’t know at this stage what the City’s longer term plans might be with respect to the washrooms.
Much of the vandalism described above has occurred during daylight or evening hours, so we ask that any members who are at the park or who drive by this area keep a lookout for suspicious activity. Should anyone observe people attempting to cause damage at the park, call 911 to report it.
Just a reminder that Opening Ceremonies are this Saturday, April 16th, 2016.
There will see face painting, a bouncey castle and lunch provided to all players!
