Slo-Pitch Softball Leagues

The City of Kelowna - Adult Sports & Leagues has come to the decision to cancel the spring Slo-Pitch season for the month of April.  Credits for the cancelled April sessions will be place on team accounts.

While we remain hopeful a shortened version of the season may still be possible, our participants healthy and safety remains our top priority.  We will again re-evaluate the current medical information available towards the end of April to determine if the season will be able to run at all.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.

Best,

City of Kelowna - Adult Sports & Leagues
