Big things for softball: upgrade to Pemberton and a partnership with Victoria Glory Softball!
Big things are happening for Beacon Hill softball!
In late July, the City of Victoria broke ground at Pemberton Park and has started the process of installing a regulation skinned infield which will be ready for the 2022 season!
And …. we are delighted to announce that we will be partnering with the newly established Victoria Glory Softball program, led by Emma Entzminger, Tokyo 2020 Olympic Bronze Medalist and current member of the Canadian National Softball Team!
Emma has been appointed Director of Player Development for Victoria Glory as well as for the Lambrick Park Softball Academy in partnership with Rocky Vitale. In addition to establishing new high-level teams in the City, the Glory will offer Next Level – an off-season skills development program.
The Glory’s mission is to raise the level of training and development for softball in our city with an emphasis on nurturing female leadership and female-to-female mentorship.
What this partnership will mean for Beacon Hill is that, starting in 2022, we’ll be able to offer softball at all levels—A, B and C—all playing out of Pemberton Park. All of our players will have more opportunities to receive quality instruction, learn from older, experienced players, and be inspired to continue playing softball as they get older by seeing high-level play at our home park!
We are very appreciative to the City of Victoria for taking steps to provide a quality field for softball at Pemberton Park so that higher levels of softball can take place, and we feel very fortunate and are grateful to Emma and Rocky for choosing us!
More information to follow in the coming weeks and months! In the meantime, check out the Victoria Glory’s site to learn more about the Next Level program and upcoming September tryouts for U19, U17, U15, and U13!
