Kirby's Source for Sports

As returning members will be aware, for the last many years Kirby's Source for Sports has provided us with 10% discount coupons to be used by Langford Fastball families to purchase ball gear for their players. Kirby has advised that unfortunately this year due to Covid-related decreases in sales he cannot offer the coupons, though he is still providing us with excellent pricing for the gear we are purchasing for the association as a whole. We encourage members to support Kirby's by continuing to purchase their fastball gear there - Kirby's is a strong supporter of West Shore minor sports and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them into the future.
