We are happy to inform you that the allocations department has now re-opened for booking requests. The City of Markham would like to thank you for your flexibility, patience and understanding during our temporary pause to services while navigating these challenging times. 
 
The City of Markham is planning to open our outdoor sports fields for the 2021 season from May 8th to October 31st. Restrictions will continue to remain in place and your adherence to your sports Return to Play Protocols, Provincial Legislation, and City requirements will allow us to continue maintaining the health and safety of our community.

We ask for your patience as our team continues to work to generate contracts and respond to inquiries on a condensed timeline. Currently, we are aiming to have regular season contracts distributed no later than Friday, April 9th to all regular season customers.

2020 USBA Season Cancelled!

To all USBA players,
  
We hope you and your families are all well. It saddens us here at the USBA to inform all of you that unfortunately due to the current and unclear future situation we are left with no choice but to cancel the 2020 USBA season. 
  
We have exhausted ourselves working with the town to salvage the current season but to no prevail. Having said that, a glimmer of some softball being played this year is still something which could take place in the near future. 
  
We will keep working with the town of Markham in the hope we can have a few tournaments before the Fall. We will notify teams if this is to come to fruition.
  
Please remain safe during this time and enjoy the remainder of the summer. We hope to see all of you on the field soon!
  
USBA Committee.
