Softball New Zealand are pleased to release the Junior White Sox and the Emerging Sox teams to travel to the Canada Cup this July.
The prestigious event will run from 13 – 23, July in Surrey, British Columbia and provide an ideal platform for players to compete on the international stage in advance of next year’s WBSC U19 Women’s World Cup in Irvine, California.
The Canada Cup offers 3 divisions where federations, colleges and clubs can compete; Women’s International & Elite, Futures (Under 19) and Showcase (16 & Under). The JWSX will play in the ‘Futures’ division and the ESX will compete in the ‘Showcase’ division.
“I am delighted to announce our 16 player JWSX team to compete at the Canada Cup. We have 6 players backing up from last year’s World Championships along with some new rising talent. It’s great to see both the JWSX and Emerging Sox teams travelling to the Canada Cup, this enables all of our 29 players in the extended squad to attend and put their talents on show in front of the JWSX coaches and selectors”, says JWSX Head Coach Carl Tuinenga.
