There's still over a month to go until Christmas, but the president of the Drumheller Girls Softball Association knows what he wants from Santa: more players, especially older girls.
Registration has opened for the 2019 softball season and players of all ages will soon be doing dryland training and other practice getting ready for it.
"I think we've probably got 12 or 13 girls signed up already, related Kent Jensen. "I think last year we had over 80, so anything over that again this year would be fantastic."
"The more time the girls spend working on their skills and whatever, the less time they have to spend trying to hammer through it come spring, once it turns nice out," explained Jensen.
The softball season in the valley doesn't start until May, but Jensen argued there's no time like the present to get their house in order, especially since they want to add another team for 2019.
"We're going to try for a U19 team again this year: there's five or six, seven girls from the U16's that have to move up to U19, so we're going to try an see if we can get them somewhere to play."
Last year, Drumheller fielded U8, U10, U12, U14 and U16 teams. To register for girls softball in Drumheller follow this link.
