This depends on the specific league(s) your team decides to join. Most games are played in Calgary, except for the GPLS league, where games will be held in various Alberta locations. Each team can also decide to attend tournaments throughout AB, BC, SK and the US.
Regular season starts in Late April and ends after Provincials Championships in early July, for the younger ages. The older age groups could play until early August, if they attend Western Canadian Championships and National Championships. Many teams also opt to attend various US tournaments in the winter and attend Showcase throughout the on and off season.
Tryouts are held in August and September.
As outlined by Softball Alberta, players looking to play at Adrenaline may be required to complete a player transfer application each year to transfer from another local minor association. A draft of our 2024 Player Transfer document can be found here.
Adrenaline has a philosophy of long term player development. If an athlete has the desire, and is committed to the program and their development, we as an organization will do all we can to support the player. Team selection is based on numerous criteria: age, positions, skill, dedication, drive, attitude, and character.
Typically, each team will have approximately 10-14 players.
Adrenaline considers itself to be a fair treatment organization; however, this does not ensure equal playing time. Players will be utilized to compete at the highest level. Each team’s coaching staff will have their own approach and plan for the season.
Flexible payment arrangements can be made upon request. In addition, financial assistance may also be available for qualified families. This process is confidential. Please email info[AT]@calgaryadrenaline.com to request a financial assistance application.
Additional costs could include, but are not limited to travel, accommodations, food, tournament fees, paid coaches, apparel and equipment.
Adrenaline participates in Casino volunteering (next date scheduled for 2021). The organization hosts an annual silent auction/social night prior to the spring season. Additionally, each team may also have their own fundraising initiatives to offset player and supplemental coaching costs.
All Calgary Adrenaline Coaches are minimally level 2 NCCP certified. In addition to team coaches, the organization employs specialized discipline instructors who will also contribute to player development.
