About South Surrey White Rock Minor Softball Association
South Surrey White Rock Minor Softball Association ("SSWRMSA") was established as a registered not‑for‑profit society in June 1994 and played our first season in 1995. The expressed purpose of the Society is to provide a healthy environment for the members of the Society to learn the fundamentals of the game of softball, and to foster the growth of honesty, integrity, self‑esteem, teamwork, and the belief of service to our community. SSWRMSA is a volunteer managed association that is affiliated with Softball BC and Softball Canada. SSWRMSA offers fastpitch softball programs for girls and boys* ages 5-22. The association offers two levels of play; House League ("C" Division) which combines beginner and experienced players and the Rep League ("Thunder") division for which players go through a September tryout and selection process.
Sportsmanship, Teamwork, Honesty, Fair Play & FUN
The SSWMSA program focuses on teaching basic softball, fastpitch techniques and principles, promoting sportsmanship, teamwork, honesty, fair play and fun in a structured and supervised environment. Kids that play say they love it for the fun of the game, meeting new friends, cheering and being supportive of one another.
