Delayed Start to Season - Now May 5 !!

The start of ball season has been delayed due to the city not opening the diamonds. All coaches have been e-mailed. All games that were scheduled for this week are to be considered "rainouts" and will need to be completed as "make up" games. There might be the possibility of doing a few double headers - but that is undecided as yet. Have a great softball season!

Brand New Name - Same Great Umps

The Edmonton Minor Softball Umpires Association (EMSUA) is now officially known as the Edmonton Blue Crew Umpires Association (EBCUA). Our blue crew team concentrates on officiating minor softball in the Edmonton region. However, this may be misconstrued by some that we are only qualified to do minor ball. This is just not true. Our highly qualified umpires go through the same certification process as all other umpire associations when it comes to maintaining their attained level or when attempting to upgrade to a new level.
