We are just a few days away until the Softball Leinster 2019 season. The first games are on the 29th of April. Here are some dates and news for you to keep in mind… Please feel free to email us with blitz dates and we’ll add them to this post.
- SL Team registration ended on the 5th of April and we lost 4 teams this year – SWAT, Springfield, Marlay Mambas and most recently the Temple Bar Hippies.
- The season starts on the 29th of April. The Castleknock club has offered to play friendlies in the Hippies spot on Monday nights for all interested teams.
- Don’t forget that there will be at least two teams automatically relegated from 1st division this year.
Remember SL early registration fee is only €150. Teams must pay their entire fees, including any field fees by the 24th of May. If teams do not pay before the 24th of May they will have to pay the full fee of €175 for the season.
Also, remember that this year Softball Ireland will be collecting €350 per team at the start of the season rather than €25 per player.
