Members of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 133 in Cobourg, Ontario, initiated the minor softball organization in 1957. This organization has been the backbone of summer sports in the area since that time and on January 30, 2001 became an incorporated entity. Incorporation was pursued to allow the organization more latitude in the soliciting of governmental funds that it is hoped will provide the financial fortitude to create, maintain, and continually improve softball in this area.
It is the mission of the Cobourg Legion Minor Softball Organization to foster and improve minor softball in the Town of Cobourg in accordance with the standards and the rules prescribed by the Ontario Amateur Softball Association (OASA), with certain specialized rule additions pertaining to our house league.
The Cobourg Legion Minor Softball Organization Incorporated (CLMSO) will foster and improve minor softball in Cobourg through the following means:
- provide quality coaching for the CLMSO players
- providing affordable recreation for anyone who wishes to participate in softball
- continually improve the way we administer softball in Cobourg through regular meetings that introduce and discuss issues related to the quality of our organization
- provide annual elections to allow all CLMSO members to exercise their freedom to elect those individuals they feel will best represent the betterment of the organization
