ChurchSoftball: Welcome

Niagara-Orleans Men's Church Softball League

Welcome to the home of the Niagara-Orleans Men's Church Softball League.  Games are scheduled to start May 9th, 2011.  Once again, instead of playoffs, we will play each team twice (once home and once away). The annual All-star fellowship game will be held at the end of the season as well.

3 non-members must be designated when the rosters are submitted and will not be able to be changed.  If a player is not on this roster, they do not play this year.  An exception this year is that you will be allowed 1, and only 1 "floater",  spot for an additional player that is not on your roster, just in case you are short a player on any given week. 

 ***Any disagreements or altercations need to be handled immediately by the coaches on the field  (including removal/suspension of players if needed).   Please keep in mind that this is a church league and attitudes and tempers should be kept in check at all times.  We are all out there to represent our churches.
