The Burlington Ladies Softball League (BLSL) is a semi-competitive but fun organized fastball league for women aged 18+. Formed in 1975, the BLSL is compromised of ladies of varying ages and skill levels from Burlington, Ontario and surrounding communities who share a love of playing ball.
Our season begins in May and ends with playoffs in late August. There are 21 games in the season with games every Wednesday and some Mondays, excluding holidays and long weekends. Games start at 6:30pm, switching to 6:00pm in mid August. All games are played in Burlington with the majority at Sherwood Park. The 2016 playoffs will be held the weekend of August 27-28th with all games at Sherwood Park.
The BLSL happily welcome new players, regardless of skill level. Players register as individuals, are given a rating and rosters are set through a draft process to ensure equally balanced teams for fun and fair competition. Each team is provided with jerseys, equipment, game balls, scorebook and a copy of the league rules. Players must provide their own rubber spiked cleats (optional), glove and batting helmet.
Our goal is to create a fun and safe environment that fosters inclusiveness and fair play. We encourage players to join their team and other players from the league at our sponsor bar following our Wednesday games to socialize and get to know each other better off the diamond.
