Strathcona Pirates or Sherwood Park Archers

If you are new to baseball in Sherwood Park you may not know the difference between our 2 Community League divisions. During registration, you will have the option to choose which team you wish to play for. The Strathcona Pirates home diamonds are located in Ardrossan and surrounding area, meaning efforts are made during scheduling to accommodate more games and practices at the Ardrossan diamonds for these teams. The Sherwood Park Archers teams will have Sherwood Park diamonds as their primary location with the occasional game in Ardrossan throughout the season.
