High School Provincial Championships

SPO is proud to offer the 24th Annual Girls' High School Slo-Pitch Provincial Championships to be held Thursday, May 23rd - Friday, May 24th, 2019 at the beautiful Slo-Pitch City complex in Dorchester, Ontario. 

(Please note that a Boys' division will also be held if there is sufficient interest.)

 

Location

Slo-Pitch City is set in a wooded rural area in Dorchester, Ontario, just minutes off of Highway 401, just east of London. There is plenty of shade and shelter for players and spectators. There is a restaurant and outside barbeque that will be serving light snack food. The park has eight diamonds which allows us to schedule the Tournament so that teams have Thursday evening off and will be finished mid-to-late afternoon on the Friday. Having the Tournament on the Thursday and Friday allows teams to compete even if their school has traditionally scheduled proms or spring formals for the Friday night, and also to not have to worry about having available players on Saturday due to work or rep team commitments.

General Information

Duration

The Tournament will start at 11:00 a.m. on the Thursday and finish up by approximately 3:00 p.m. on the Friday.

Eligibility and Sanctioning

All Ontario Secondary School slo-pitch teams are eligible. This Tournament is sanctioned by OFSAA and all teams must meet OFSAA Guidelines.

Format

The emphasis of this Tournament is on fun and participation. Teams of all skill levels are welcome. We use a self-seeding format so teams are placed in different divisions depending on their ability and know they will be able to be competitive in their division. Teams are guaranteed three (3) scheduled games.

Entry Fee and Deadline

The Entry Fee is $339.00 ($300.00 + HST). Deadline for Entries is Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at 12:00 pm. Payment can be made conveniently on-line by credit card or by EMT (payable to payment@slopitch.org, Password: HIGHSCHOOL).  Alternatively, payment can be made by cheque or money order payable to SPO and mailed or couriered to 7-8 Hiscott Street, St. Catharines, ON L2R 1C6. No team will be accepted into the Tournament unless payment has been received. 

Schedule

All teams must be prepared to play at 11:00 am. A short Coaches meeting (tall ones are also welcome) will be held 45 minutes prior to a team’s first game. Each team will play two games on the Thursday. Games will continue on Friday morning and, depending on the number of teams, the play-offs should end around 3:00 pm. The Schedule will be provided no later than the Monday before the Tournament.
