Prairie League Softball is excited to announce the creation of the Bruce Vance Coach Scholarship. In recognition of one of our founders, this scholarship will award $1000.00 to a post-secondary student who volunteers as a minor girls softball coach.
Bruce Vance has been an integral part of the creation and growth of GPLS since inception in 2011. A Prince Albert, SK resident, Bruce was one of the first people to take enthusiastically to the concept of a weekend league and has since served in various roles including as commissioner and division director. A long time volunteer with the Prince Albert Aces as both a coach and organizer, Bruce has also had a huge impact on countless young athletes. This scholarship will align with Bruce's commitment to the sport of softball and to developing young athletes into confident and successful young adults with a commitment to giving back to the sport and their community.
Criteria and applications will be made available in July shortly after the conclusion of the 2022 GPLS season. Recipients will be selected by an independent committee of former GPLS volunteers and announced in August.
