Bonivital Softball began 2023 focused on registering more players and ensuring there were teams and coaches in all age categories. The association organized teams for the first time in the ‘AA’ category, for players who want to experience a more competitive level of softball in addition to their‘A’ level community teams.

BVSA adopted new team names (Flash for ‘A’ teams and Bolts for ‘AA’), colours and uniforms that align with our affiliated ‘AAA’ organization, the Winnipeg Lightning. The association got the season started early by making indoor practice space available and held evaluations and tryouts to ensure balanced ‘A’ teams and select the ‘AA’ teams. BVSA offered a coaching clinic and pitching, catching and batting clinics for players in addition to their regular team practices.

“The awards won by BVSA teams in 2023 are just one measure of success,” says BVSA President Lucy Chura. “The executive, board of directors and coaches at all levels were thrilled to see so many young players having fun, developing new friendships and taking their skills to a higher level.” 

BVSA hosted an ‘A’ tournament for the first time this season that had 31 teams from around Winnipeg and southern Manitoba competing in almost every age group. We were thrilled to have many sponsors from local businesses and government representatives to support the event. The BVSA tournament will be back in 2024, aiming to be even bigger. 

Bonivital Softball also secured a commitment from the City of Winnipeg to make some repairs and improvements to our home field, Riel Park in St. Vital which will help further grow the sport and support teams and families in our area in future seasons. 

Thank you to all the parents, coaches and players that made the 2023 BVSA season a huge success, and we look forward to more in 2024!
