Frequently Asked Questions

Can I join with a friend/partner? Absolutely, Players may request a "buddy" to join with them for the season. This will allow you and your buddy to be drafted and play on the same team. Each player must request the other player on the registration form in order to fulfill the request. Requests to join with more than one player at this time cannot be accommodated.

Where are the games? Most of our games are centrally located in Calgary. Please go to Fields for updated information.

Are there gender restrictions? No, we want to ensure all genders are equal! Team Captains are instructed to ensure players play in a variety positions and develop a batter order that promotes inclusivity. For more information, go to CASA Rules.

Can straight people play? All straight allies are welcome to play! Keep in mind, all allies should understand ally-ship to ensure all LGBTQ2S+ players feel safe, as this is their space.

I’ve never played softball before, can I join? Yes, yes, yes…a thousand times, yes! Every year many players join the league not knowing a thing about softball. That’s ok – we got you! You will be drafted onto a team with a Captain who will support you. CASA also runs a Meet N Greet before the season to allow you to have some coaching. Finally, it doesn’t hurt for you to read the rules before you start.

What equipment do I need to play? A softball glove and cleats. However, some players wear running shoes, but it’s not recommended. Typically someone on your team will bring bats to share, and the balls and bases are provided by CASA. Jersey’s are also part of your registration, so don’t forget to tell us your size.

What night of the week does the league play? CASA league plays on Wednesday evenings from April/May to August/September each year.

How many weeks of games are there? 16 (glorious) weeks!

I’m interested in being a Team Captain/Co-Captain, what do I do? Please contact us directly. The Board each year will select the Captains.

Are there toilets, port-a-potties or bathroom facilities at the fields? Typically, no. Toilets or port-a-potties are not provided by the City of Calgary or CASA.

I have a complaint about another player, what do I do? First, talk to the player directly. It’s always good to resolve issues one on one. However, if you need support or if it’s serious please tell your Team Captain and email the Board on the contact us page. We want to ensure the experience for all is fun and safe – so please don’t hesitate to contact us.

I’m interested in being a board member, what do I do? Please check out the CASA Bylaws – this will give you a good sense of the roles and expectations. Next, contact us, we would love to chat! Board members are voted in every year at the Annual General Meeting held in October.

Weather Policy & Updates

CASA Weather Policy

Game Day Weather Call

  • Unless otherwise notified games will be ON for that day.

  • Individuals should expect that games will be played under less than ideal weather conditions – wind and cooler temperatures for example – and should be prepared accordingly with appropriate clothing.

  • If games for that day are going to be CANCELLED, Captains will be notified by 5 PM that day.  CASA will make determinations, based upon weather conditions and forecasts.  Please ensure game day that you check for notifications from your captain.

  • When games are considered ON for a given day, both teams are expected to have their teams show up at the diamond with the minimum number of players to avoid a default of the game.

Weather and Field Conditions at Game Time

  • Weather conditions in Calgary can change rapidly, and due to the large geographic area of Calgary, weather conditions can vary across the city.  Therefore, even though games may be considered to be ON for that day, teams have the discretion to mutually agree to cancel a game based upon weather or field conditions at game time.

  • Teams also have the discretion to stop play during a game due to changing weather conditions.

  • Under no circumstances should games be played or continued to be played in the presence of thunder and lightning, excessive rainfall, hail, or where weather or field conditions pose a safety issue to players.  Games should stop immediately or not be played in these circumstances.

  • Teams should wait 20 minutes allowing weather conditions to change before calling a game-off.

Rescheduling of Cancelled Games

  • If games are canceled by CASA for that evening or teams call off a game prior to game start due to changing weather conditions, CASA will make best efforts to attempt to reschedule those games.  There will be limited slots to reschedule, therefore all games may not be rescheduled.

  • If teams decide to cancel a game prior to starting, due to weather or field conditions, the Team Captains will need to notify CASA, so that possible rescheduling can occur.  Again due to limited time slots available, all games may not be rescheduled.

Stopping Games and Scoring

  • If a game is stopped during play, due to unsafe weather or field conditions, then the score from the last full inning will be deemed to be the final score for that game, if the fourth inning has been completed. If the fourth inning hasn’t been completed, then it will be recorded as a tie.  NO rescheduling will occur.

Examples of Weather Conditions Causing Cancellation of Games:

  • Thunder and Lightning

  • Heavy rainfall or rainfall amounts that make for slippery or hazardous footing

  • Snow

  • Hail

  • Unsafe field conditions

  • Poor air quality conditions, where it is recommended that outdoor activity cease

  • Games should not be played if there are conditions that pose a safety issue to players.
