The 2019 season marks the 12th year of OQSL softball for LGBTQ+ participants in the National Capital Region. Each year the OQSL offers several events and activities to build our community around the sport we love. In addition to the regular season schedule, we host an OQSL Registration Night party, as well as two Skills and Drills clinics for new players, an end of season Playoffs and Year end banquet, The OQSL Spring Softball on the Rideau Tournament, Drag and Balls, and other pride activities.
OQSL Registration Night
The OQSL Registration Night is a great opportunity to complete your registration by submitting your Player Waiver and member fee in person, but just as important, you get to meet the league captains and other players.
The OQSL Registration Night will be held at The Royal Oak – 188 Bank St. (Bank at Gloucester) Thursday April 11th between 7 – 9pm.
Following the Registration Evening and Skills and Drills teams are drafted by the captains. Players will hear from their Captain the week of draft.
Skills and Drills
This season the OQSL will be hosting two Skills and Drills for new players. The main purpose of the Skills and Drills is to help league captains observe and evaluate new players for the draft.
Skills & Drills #1 is May 5, 2019 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at Sandy Hill Arena Ball Diamond.
Skills & Drills #2 is May 11, 2019 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at Sandy Hill Arena Ball Diamond.
