WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE'RE ABOUT

T3C SOFTBALL MINISTRY. This is a summer softball program organized by the Toronto Christian Community Church (T3C) for people to play together and enjoy the game of softball with the following vision and mission:

VISION: To create, engage, and encourage disciples to share in word and deed about Jesus Christ, for the glory of God

MISSION: To use softball as an inviting space for people to belong and experience God’s love through intentional relationship-building

Our vision and mission statements are derived from the Bible, specifically, Romans 10:14-15, and John 13:34-35.

While playing softball together, not only do we want to develop softball skills, but we also want to develop friendships, leaders, a sense of community and to share and demonstrate the love and word of Jesus.

We look forward to another fun season with new friends and new memories!
1. T3C SOFTBALL REGISTRATION (PART 1)
Filling out this form is for TCCC (T3C) administration purposes only.
T3C Softball Registration will be open until May 9, 2020 @ 11:59PM* or once full.

We will be factoring in the following when processing applications:

- - Complete payments by Deadline.
- - Individual Commitment levels.
- - Our priority list mentioned below.

*We will be capping our registration when full, which may happen before the deadline.
The reason for the cap is to allow for more manageable communication and management on each softball team.

We will try our best to accommodate players, however please understand that we are working under many constraints. We will make every effort to process all incoming forms ahead of the CCSA deadline, so that even if all of our spots are filled, there may be playing opportunities with other CCSA teams (https://ccsasoftball.net/). 
2. CCSA REGISTRATION (PART 2)

All players must create a CCSA Dashboard profile, as this is also mandatory for a player's application to be complete. Please register on https://dashboard.ccsasoftball.net/

Players with existing profiles simply need to login (and update your info if applicable and sign the online waiver).

If it's your first time accepting the online waiver on the CCSA Dashboard, you'll also need to print out and sign a physical copy with pen (MUST BE SIGNED WITH PEN INK, NO SCANNING) and return it to us before the deadline. Please see below for submission details.

If you're under the age of 18, you'll need to print out a physical copy every year for a parent or guardian to sign on your behalf.

EXPECTATIONS *Updated for 2020*

IMPORTANT* Due to the high demand to play, and only ONE Junior team and only ONE Senior team this season (2020), spots on our softball teams are EXTREMELY limited, and are reserved for players who can COMMIT to attending practices (once a week) and games (10 games). Please be aware that after processing applications, we may need to turn away players or have players put on a Waiting List. We may also close our registration before the deadline if it becomes full. We reserve the right to determine who will be eligible to play. 

* * * * * PRIORITY LIST * * * * *
Priority to get a spot on our teams will factor in completed payments, individual commitment level to games, practices, team functions, as well as the following priority list:

i) Friends that are new to or unfamiliar with the Christian faith that don't have a home church, with an interest to learn and play softball (this amount will be limited)
ii) T3Cers bringing in a Friend (i), and who will be active in participating in the purpose of this ministry.
iii) T3Cers who will be active in participating in the purpose of this ministry.
iv) T3Cers who have never had an experience to play in the CCSA before.
v) T3Cers that will not be playing on another T3C summer sports team this summer.
vi) T3Cers that will be playing on another T3C summer sports team this summer.
vii) T3Cers that will be playing in another softball league this summer.

We want to allow people to join a community at T3C if they don't already have one. We will use prayer, wisdom, discernment, and our best discretion to determine eligibility of players, but want to promote fairness, and inclusion into the T3C community. If you are well integrated and connected into the T3C community, you may be put on the Waiting List. We want to provide the opportunity for people to experience the softball ministry if they have not before, and for people who have not had the opportunity to plug into our T3C community.

If you have NOT met the expected commitment level in the previous season(s), you may be put on the Waiting List or turned away.

We will not be able to accommodate Christians who have a home church elsewhere and/or Christians who attend church on Sundays elsewhere. Special cases can be discussed, please direct all questions or concerns to t3csoftball@gmail.com.

Our softball teams are all about coming together, building relationships, and getting to know one another better over the the course of the season, so commitment to being present is an absolute expectation. If you are unable to commit, or if you are not able to get a spot on our teams, please know that we will have other opportunities for you to participate and play, such as at Softball Day, some exhibition games, and some designated team practices. Please be aware that though we have less teams this year, we may have more teams in future seasons, so do consider signing up again with us in the future! The limited number of teams this season is due to the limited number of leaders. If you or someone you know would make an excellent leader, please connect with us. Also, if you have any questions at all, or would like to discuss any of these matters, do not hesitate to reach out to us at t3csoftball@gmail.com.
