West Carleton house league softball is now accepting registrations for boys and girls born from 1999 to 2013. Last year, they had over 400 players and the association hopes to continuing growing! Games are played at participating community centres in West Carleton (Fitzroy Harbour, Kinburn, Carp, Dunrobin and Constance Bay) with older age groups also playing against teams in other associations. The house league season runs from May 1 until June 23. All skill levels are welcome and registration fees are very reasonable. To register, please visit or your local Community Association's webpage.
