As softball continues to grow on Prince Edward Island, Softball PEI has been working on sending more provincial teams to compete at Canadian Fastpitch Championships. In 2020, Softball PEI wanted to move on giving the provincial teams a brand, an identity that would be recognized by athletes and softball fans as the provincial team at their respective age level. Giving many young athletes a dream and goal to some day compete for team PEI, while wearing the provincial team name and logo. It was decided the 2020 U14 Provincial team would be the inaugural team to take on a new name and logo, and although it was not the season expected anywhere across the country, the team chose a name and logo relating to PEI to carry forward: PEI Whitecaps.
PRIDE: Our athletes proudly wear the Whitecaps High Performance name and logo. Being role models for the younger athletes, giving back to the minor levels, training and competing for Prince Edward Island and making lasting memories of being a Whitecaps athlete.
DEVELOPMENT: Whitecaps coaches work to develop athletes to compete with the best in the country, beginning at the grass roots to the senior levels. Softball PEI is committed to developing athletes through the Whitecaps High Performance Program with skill and strength development, nutrition and sport psychology.
PERSEVERANCE: The Whitecaps High Performance Program will work with belief, positivity and determination, setting goals to overcome the hurdles of being a small province competing on a national stage against the rest of the country.
For the 2021 season, the PEI Whitecaps will be represented in the U14, U16 and Senior Women's divisions at Canadian Championships.
