Fireman’s Park is a hotbed of ball action this weekend with the SVI U10 Tier 1 Districts Championships plus the Tadpole Baseball championship game on the diamonds over the weekend.

The U10 girls Carnarvon Red Pandas sofball team hosts the district championship at Fireman’s Park, July 23 to 25. Most of the girls live in or near Oak Bay.

“We’re thrilled to be hosting the U10 Tier 1 District Tournament in Oak Bay this year,” said David Leach, head coach of the Carnarvon Red Pandas. “It will be an exciting weekend of softball, with lots of action on the diamonds and lots of singing and dancing in the dugouts at Fireman’s Park.”

Other teams will be coming from Sooke, Duncan, Central Saanich, Langford and Lakehill.

“It’s an extra special season for our girls, with former UBC softball player Claire Eccles coming over to pitch with the HarbourCats,” Leach said. “We’re hoping she inspires even more girls to start playing ball throughout Greater Victoria.”

Carnarvon kicks off play at 6:30 p.m. Friday in Upper Fireman’s against Langford. The local team returns to the field at noon Saturday to face Lakehill then at 4 p.m. take on Central Saanich. The gold Find the full schedule here.
