Video: Softball Canada launches 'Women of Softball Spotlight Series'
19/02/2021
New videos will be released through Softball Canada’s website and social media accounts every few weeks leading up to the start of the 2021 softball season.

Softball Canada has launched 'Women of Softball Spotlight Series', a video series profiling several influential and powerful women within the game in Canada. The first Women of Softball Spotlight Series video featuring the Canadian Women’s National Softball Team was released on 16 February. 

“Softball Canada has been able to make considerable headway in the area of gender equity, but there is still work to be done,” stated Angela Ballantyne, Softball Canada’s Manager of Long Term Player Development Programs. “The softball community within Canada is empowering females and supporting those who participate in any discipline of our game to not only overcome barriers, but work together to eliminate them completely.”

New videos will be released through Softball Canada’s website and social media accounts every few weeks leading up to the start of the 2021 softball season.
