This is the home of the York University Lions Women's Fastball team.  The team has been around for more than 12 years, and was the first team to start the OIWFA league.  We are a team of enthusiastic players who enjoy the game and wish to continue playing after the summer is over.  The OIWFA (Ontario Intercollegiate Women's Fastpitch Association) is an organization that allows teams from 12 Ontario universities to play out a 22-game 5-week schedule.  Games are normally played as double-headers only on weekends.  Each university is paired with a "travel partner" (ours is Queens).  It is for this reason that our games with them will occur before the start of the regular season.

York Lions Women's 2013 Fastball season has begun!  All female athletes attending York University with a passion for fastpitch softball are encouraged to try out!

Please keep checking our site as we are constantly making updates.

Week 3

York Fastball would like to welcome Julie Balman to the management of the team.  She has stepped up to the plate to accept the role of Club Vice President.  Julie offers essential skill to the team as both a player and a VP.  She is an excellent asset to this organization.

Below are some pictures of some on-camera interviews with Rick Mercer on Saturday October 20 in London during the 2012 OIWFA playoffs.  Rick was on hand at the behest of the OIWFA executive.  During his interviews with OIWFA teams, he learned about certain aspects of the sport of fastpitch softball, the plight of club sports teams in their fight to get more recognition and support, and even some technical pointers on how to play the game!  The York University fastpitch club certainly appreciates his taking the time to talk to our athletes!
