Once again, starting November 2017, RHMSA is offering free Chix with Stix Skills Clinics as well as Pitching & Catching clinics on Friday evenings in the Kettle Lakes and Oak Ridges Public School gym. These clinics are just for girls! The focus is to introduce female players to proper fundamentals as well as intermediate and competitive levels of play by focusing on general and advanced skills, mechanics and strategy. All this while meeting old and new friends and having fun. These off-season clinics encourage female players to come out to the gym, bring a friend and increase their confidence, so that they can maximize their game in the summer. See you in the gym!

Thanks to all the parents, coaches and kids who braved the cold and marched in the 2016 Richmond Hill Santa Claus Parade! Despite the wet weather, we had a great turn out and both kids and parents proudly represented RHMSA during the 4km walk. We would like to give special thanks to Monica for organizing the event, Helen for bringing extra candle holders (Mike for drinking the pop) and for the Leblond / Bland girls who helped build our mini float. With all the support, the parade was a success! We couldn’t have done it without you!
RHMSA would like to thank our sponsor, Lidia and Menchie’s Oak Ridges for your generosity, kindness and for helping our kiddos fulfill their dreams this season. Thank you very much for your generous support and for being an outstanding community member of RHMSA, Richmond Hill – Oak Ridges! Let’s Play Ball!
We were fortunate to have many amazing coaches this year. However, two individuals certainly stood out by coaching not one, not two but three teams in 2016. This dynamic duo coached the first ever U14 Girls Select team, led their U14 Girls House League team to win the championship game and brought their U12 Girls Select team to a provincial championship silver medal. RHMSA would like to congratulate James Bland & Monica Bland for another awesome summer of softball. Your positive attitude and dedication over many years have help create a fun and positive environment for our kids. RHMSA and the community of Richmond Hill are fortunate to have caring and committed coaches like you.
RHMSA would like to also sincerely thank the many amazing individuals who stepped up to coach this season. It’s because of your commitment and coaching skills that the kiddos of our community had a place to play ball this summer.
Thank you Wild Wings in King City for hosting our Annual Coaches Appreciation Dinner this year. The food was certainly fresh and delicious.
