Alberni Valley Minor Softball will host the U16 ‘C’ girls’ provincial championships July 4–6 at Echo Minor Fields.

The organization has gained a reputation for seamlessly running provincial championships and this year is no different. Last year Port Alberni hosted the U16 ‘B’ provincials, and the ‘C’ provincials were held here three years ago, tournament director Cal Davies said.

The U16 C Blazers have a home berth in the championship which will see 16 teams from all over B.C. compete in a round robin format.

Games are free for the public to come out and watch.

The schedule will be released next week and should be listed online at www.albernisoftball.com. Games take place at Echo Minor Fields.

“There will be some really good ball games there,” Davies said.
