KASA also operates the concession at the Mission Kinsmen Sportsfield Softball Complex, and supplies the table and chair rentals for all events held at the Mission quad beer gardens.
All proceeds from these and other KASA endevours is poured right back into softball oriented projects throughout the Kelowna area. KASA has already been instrumental in the innovation and funding of improvements to some of the most popular ball diamonds and parks in the Kelowna area. By partnering with the City of Kelowna under their 'Partners in Parks' initiative, KASA has contributed to the installation of field irrigation systems, lighting systems, the new 'permanent' beer gardens with table and chair storage and rental facilities, in-ground magnetic base systems....and a myriad of other improvements to the Mission Kinsmen Sportsfields Softball Complex.
We have been similarly involved in the design, development and maintenance of the facilities in East Kelowna---popularly known as the McCulloch Station Fields. In co-operation with the City of Kelowna once again, our combined efforts and resources resulted in new light systems, fencing, washroom and storage facilities, base systems, and the general upgrade of the park. This project alone added essentially 28 adult-sized fields per week to the inventory of softball diamonds in Kelowna--without having to pay extra land costs!
KASA has instigated, encouraged or participated in many of the pertinent discussions regarding our sport and the softball facilities in the Kelowna region. We subsequently helped to author the Sportsfields Facilities--Fees and Allocations Policy for City of Kelowna.
KASA will continue to be strong advocates for our sport and for all who partake of it. We will continue to participate in the design, development, operation and maintenance of sportsfields and facilities and to represent all softball players, teams, fans, and officials in the Kelowna region to the best of our abilities and in the true spirit of sportsmanship and co-operation.
