Softball ACT will finalise the draws in the weeks leading up to the season commencing. They cannot finalise until they know how many teams they will have. Junior games will more than likely be played between 8.30am & 12.30pm on a Saturday morning. Past seasons have commenced with the lower age groups in the first time slots.
Womens games will be played on a Saturday afternoon (usually between 1.00 – 7.00pm on a rotational basis.
Mens games are usually played from 6.30pm on a Monday or Tuesday night depending on the grade.
Given that some winter sports will still be running during September, we intend to hold some initial training sessions on a Wednesday afternoon at the Hawker Softball fields, weather & Covid lockdown permitting.
At these training sessions your child/yourself will be able to meet other players in the same age group. We will also use these sessions to finalise teams prior to season commencement. Club training will be held on a Wednesday afternoon/early evening – times to be confirmed.
Once the season formally commences, training sessions for U8 Teeball will be held prior to the game on a Saturday morning (note this will depend on game times which are still to be confirmed).
Training for older teeball, junior and senior softball players will be conducted on a Wednesday afternoon at Hawker softball fields. Further information will be provided closer to the season.
Initially it would be ideal if you can purchase a glove. Hurricanes provides all the other necessary equipment such as tees, balls, and bats.
Due to Covid-19, policies in place, note players should have their own helmet and glove. Hurricanes are able to loan helmets and gloves where available for the season.
You need to pay when you formally register either via credit card, PayPal or direct deposit. Players cannot take the diamond until they have fully paid fees.
