A year ago when we, as a local team, decided to go to NZ and Australia for a ball exchange, the opportunity arose for Wadena be included as one of the hosts of the NZ International Softball Academy. The team annually travels to Canada, along with various other regions in the world, with the boys from the program often moving up to the world stage in mens’ softball. This year they are stopping at a number of places in Western Canada on this tour, as well as other softball tournaments in the Czech Republic, USA and Australia. The New Zealand team will also be visiting Shellbrook, PA, Sasaktoon, Delisle, Earl Grey, Fleming, Brandon, Bonnyville, Irma, and Camrose on their trip.
