Calgary Men's/Ladies/Coed Slo-Pitch League

What We're All About

The Calgary Men's Slo-Pitch League was founded in 1972 by a group of friends wanting to play organized ball. The league has since provided adult slo-pitch softball for more than three decades at the same location to thousands of Calgarian and surrounding area residents; in 2011 the league changed names to Calgary Men's/Ladies/Coed Slow Pitch League (CMLC). We're a recreational softball league with a healthy mix of competition, fun and a simple love of the game.

The continued success of the league is dependent on the actions of its members and organizers. Respecting the community, fellow players, game and league officials is expected of everybody involved. Our goal is simple...to provide fun and safe softball to adults of all ages while contributing to the surrounding community.

We're fortunate to be able to play ball at such a fantastic location and we're committed to our relationship with Jaycee Slo-Pitch Park, local residents, the Calgary Slow Pitch Society and affiliated associations.
