Langford Fastball wishes to acknowledge the continued support of the City of Langford
We are South Vancouver Island's largest Minor Fastball club providing 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!
Langford Fastball would like to welcome our new Umpire-in-Chief, Teresa Allen!
Teresa has been UIC in Richmond for the past several years and has now moved to the West Shore with her husband Nick - a former Langford player and umpire who himself is the Deputy Provincial UIC.
We are extremely lucky to have Teresa, with her terrific experience and enthusiasm as our new UIC - make sure to welcome Teresa when you see her around the park!
Hello to our Langford Fastball family,
With the softball season being at least postponed at this point, we have received some enquiries about refunds. At this time Langford Fastball has instituted a policy under which we will review the refund/credit situation for all members when the softball season either resumes or is cancelled.
While we are acting immediately to limit any further costs incurred until such time as we can be sure there will be a playing season, since some costs for this season have already been incurred and cannot be recovered - including for player clinics, equipment, uniforms, insurance, field maintenance, and coach and umpire development - the executive will need to review the situation as a whole before determining the overall refund/credit situation.
We thank you for your patience and your understanding as this situation continues to evolve for all of us, and we will be in touch again once we have further information.
We look forward to seeing you all as soon as possible! Stay happy and healthy.
Effective immediately all softball related activities are suspended until May 1, 2020.

B.C. SOFTBALL BC ACTIVITIES IN LIGHT OF COVID – 19
Dear Softball BC Member:
The pandemic all Canadians are dealing with continues to be a fluid situation, with changes and updates coming hourly. Softball Canada has just announced they are suspending all related activities until April 14th . With the new guidelines in place, both from our national sport body and those introduced by the federal government, we are suspending, immediately, all softball related activities until May 1st, 2020. Our board is committed to ensuring we provide thoughtful and appropriate actions to protect our members, and we had stated previously that we would follow the directives and guidelines of health authorities and sport governing bodies. In order to remain consistent to that commitment, we are today taking this next step to do our part in helping reduce the possible spread of the virus. We will continue to monitor all agencies and governing bodies, should the guidelines change prior to May 1st, we will reassess our position.
Should you have any questions, or require more information, please direct your inquiry to me at email@example.com or 604 371- 0302 ext. 6. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation throughout this crisis.
Yours truly, Rick Benson, Executive Director, Softball BC
