Teams Update (Live Ball Only)

For 10’s and up ONLY (Not TeeBall)

We will be finalising our teams shortly and most coaches should have their team lists sent to them by tonight. 
REMINDER – You need to be REGISTERED to be allocated into a team

We are hoping teams can begin their own training sessions ASAP, however we may continue to do age based training for some groups for the rest of the week. Posts will go up daily with info relating to age based training

We are looking for a Coach for our 17U Div 2 Team – if anyone knows anyone that would like to coach please let me know.

We also need a few players for our 11/2’s team which only has 7 players – spread the word!
