The Ontario Women’s Baseball League (formerly the COGBL) is the longest continuous all female baseball league in existence in Canada. It was formed in 1996 to provide an opportunity for girls in the central Ontario area to play baseball against other all-female teams. It has offered baseball for age levels from Peewee to Women’s divisions. Teams from all over the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) have played in one division or another from as far east as Ajax to as far west as Kitchener and Burlington and north to Barrie.
Currently the OWBL has a Women’s division but we would be able to help girls in lower age level divisions connect with coed or girls teams in their area. The OWBL is constantly looking for the addition of new teams or players, so if you have a women’s team, or are a female baseball player, located anywhere in Ontario, please contact us at [email protected]
Players from the OWBL have participated provincially, nationally, and internationally on Team Ontario and Team Canada. Member club teams have travelled to many parts of the United States including San Diego, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Indiana, Orlando and Chicago to participate in tournaments.
The league welcomes interest from any female team or individuals who wish to participate.
Our goal is to create a team experience for girls/women that builds fitness, skills, confidence, camaraderie, and true sportsmanship through the playing of baseball.
