The SAIT Trojans Women’s Collegiate Fastball Team was formed in 2002 to provide young women attending the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology the opportunity to play competitive intercollegiate Softball in Canada.
SAIT being one of the five founding members and a strong supporter of the Alberta Intercollegiate Women’s Fastball Association (AIWFA), participated as the league continued to grow with teams from Alberta and Saskatchewan. The league changed it’s name to the Western Collegiate Softball Association (WCSA) and currently includes teams at the University of Lethbridge, Mount Royal University, University of Calgary, University of Regina, University of Saskatchewan, and SAIT Polytech.
SAIT has been invited to three of the five Canadian Collegiate National Championship in 2008, 2010, and 2012 with a very respectable placing of 5th in the National Championships ahead of University of Lethbridge, University of Regina and University of Calgary. SAIT in 2011 won the Silver medal in league playoffs and won the Bronze medal in 2012.
The Trojans will again be participating in the 2014 Canadian Collegiate National Championships being held in Calgary October 11th, 12th and 13th. We are looking forward to this very prestigious event.
