Photo roundup goes championship season style

Players who ultimately decide to give back to their sports are gems that keep the sports world going.

One of those gems who has found fulfillment in giving back is 20-year-old Saskatoon Shock outfielder Haley Jaman. Jaman has played softball for her whole life and continues to play with the Shock and the University of Saskatchewan women’s club team.

Jaman and the Shock will be playing at Softball Canada’s women’s nationals, which start Wednesday and run through to Sunday at the Gordie Howe Sports Complex along with the under-17 boys’ nationals. That will mark the first time Jaman will get to play in a nationals at home.

Besides playing softball, Jaman has also gotten her feat wet in coaching the game. She coaches regularly with JQFP Softball and the Saskatchewan North Central Softball Academy. In the future, Jaman would like to be the head coach of her own team.
