Girls soft­ball play­ers in the val­ley will have a chance this week­end to see what it takeS to con­tinue their ca­reer at the col­lege level.

The Drumheller Girls Soft­ball As­so­ci­a­tion has in­vited the Univer­sity of Cal­gary Dynos and the SAIT Tro­jans to the val­ley this Satur­day. The two teams will be play­ing a dou­ble header at New­cas­tle Di­a­monds.

Kent Jensen of the soft­ball as­so­ci­a­tion and as­sis­tant coach of U14 Pure Venom says this is a great op­por­tu­nity for the teams.

“One of our coaches is friends with the coach from SAIT, and they had the brain­child that it would be good for some of our girls to see what they could do if they stick with ball when they get to Univer­sity,” said Jensen. The games are in fact league games. The val­ley has been boom­ing with a resur­gence of high qual­ity soft­ball. Last season As­so­ci­a­tion had a U16 team, a U14 team, two U12 teams two U10 teams and two U8 teams. He says soft­ball is a great team sport, and he feels the play­ers ap­pre­ci­ate be­ing on all girls teams.

He says this is a great chance for the young play­ers to not only see top shelf ball, but also meet some of the play­ers. They are plan­ning to make time avail­able for lo­cal play­ers to meet and in­ter­act with some of the col­lege play­ers.

The games are this Satur­day, Septem­ber 17 at New­cas­tle Di­a­monds with games at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
