In order to make sure all U14 participants will benefit from their experience in a Canadian Championship, the competition format has been adapted accordingly.
The Softball Canada Official Rule Book shall govern play except for the following modifications:
- Pitchers will be limited to a maximum of 4 innings per game (one pitch is considered an inning).
- Each player must play a minimum of 2 innings (12 outs) per game. In a run ahead rule game, a team will not be penalized if not able to play all team members.
NOTE – Coaches who do not follow the above rule modifications will be suspended for the next game in the Championship and if it is their last game of the Championship the offending team will lose the game.
