Slow Pitch

Does anyone on RS play on a slow pitch team?
I am looking to get into slow pitch this year but have no idea where to to start. Google results show only league pages that say they have little to no room year after year...

I am new at slow pitch but am fairly athletic. Played "soft ball" in high school gym and did pretty well. And I have a general understanding of the rules of the game. Any help would be much appreciated.

My buddies and I just put together a team for softball city. All we had to do was register our team through a form. I'm not sure how it is if you're joining as an individual though. You'll probably have to contact a team that has open spots.

If you're an athletic female, then we have room on our team.

Otherwise, the leagues I suggest you look into are: Crosstown League, and VASL (Vancouver Advertising Softball League). Both leagues have huge amounts of teams and play on diamonds within Vancouver. I've played on both leagues for a number of years.

GF and I will be playing our first season of slo-pitch in the "tri-cities" league, just bought our gloves today!
Never played before but we're both athletic enough to hold our own. Not to sure what to expect but should be fun!

It is hard to find a team as a single player if you don't have any contacts. Unless you are a female.

Use real softballs.
The main thing is to work on their form and timing for swinging the bat.

Any reason why using real ones are better than using the same sized wiffle/training balls?

Team funds aren't very high right now but we'll suck it up if there's a huge benefit to it.

Went out for my first team practice (hitting/fielding) and damn I'm horrible at judging fly balls! Depth perception all messed up!
Hitting felt pretty natural though, pretty consistent.

Looking forward for the season.

PM me if you want some used softballs, but still in decent shape, I got some lying around not being used.
