Season Runs 22nd April to 2nd September

Pre-Season SATURDAY 18TH MARCH is our third day of pre-season mini games to sort out the teams for the season competition. Game times will be as below, please note we have added in a pre-game skill session before each junior game. If you came last week you will have a fair idea as to what time you should be arriving, other Juniors please come at the J3 start time. There will again be a Registration Desk operating which will have “DRAFT” ONLY team lists to direct people where to go and an assembly area for each age division, Please bring a black and white shirt as you will not know which team you will be in until you arrive. We are also calling for Umpires. Great opportunity to get some pre season games in before the season begins proper. If you can come down and bring your umpire gear, that would be great. We encourage everyone to attend, even if you haven’t registered online yet, this will assist us in placing you into the correct junior team as per your abilities. See over for game times.

This Sunday is the last of the Training and Development sessions. Beginners at 2:00pm

Experienced Players from 3:30pm All games and Training will be held at Henry Ziegenfusz Park.
