Coaching and umpiring clinics

Like many sports in Springfield, SMSA relies on the dedication of volunteer coaches from our community.

Details on Softball Manitoba coaching training can be found here: http://www.softball.mb.ca/english/programs/coaching/2019-coaching-clinics.html

You can find out more about how we support our coaches here.

As well, we are always on the lookout for local umpires who can adjudicate our regular season games. If you are interested, more information is available here: http://www.softball.mb.ca/english/programs/umpiring/umpiring.html
