Hurricanes entered 8 junior teams this season comprising 2x U8 & 2 x U10 teeball teams and 1 x U12, 1 x U14 and 2 x U17 softball teams.
We welcomed many new families into our club this season and everyone fitted straight in and we were extremely lucky to have some of our returning coaches and also some new coaches to the club.
All of our teams had wins and losses throughout the season and the grin from ear to ear from players (and their proud parents) when a great hit or catch was made is something these players will remember for a long time.
On Grand Final day our U12 Comets team took out the win against Storm and our 2x U17 teams battle it out for 1st Place. The Black Hawks team went down to our Wild Cats team by one run in the last innings. It was a close and exiting game. Many of the U17 players will now continue their softball path in Mens and Women’s divisions next season.
Our Sky Hawks E grade woman came together from many walks of life this season for the same reason... to play ball! Some of these ladies hadn’t played for 10-20 years and had to dust off the old gloves & then do an grease and oil change for themselves and their equipment!
A few injuries along the way saw some players out for a few weeks. In stepped some of the U17 boys who help coached the team and these ladies started to get into the groove -started winning games some and the team ended up having a great season with the boys coaching them.
Our new Mens’ grades have been extraordinary this season.
The A grade Strikers who merged with us at the beginning of the season have had some extremely exciting games and I have seen many of you out to watch the fast pace these games are played at.
Our B Grade Vipers debuted this season and it was a big step up from some of the lads only playing U17 last season. All at our club were extremely proud of these young men for the sheer grit and determination they showed up with every week. Even some of our opponents commented how fantastic the Vipers first season was and they look forward to seeing what the team brings next season.
Our C Grade Angels who also merged with us have had a cracker of a season and were runner's up in the grand final.
Hurricanes is so excited to welcome all the players in both Mens' and Womens' Angels to Hurricanes Softball Club. This merger of our clubs will be a fantastic opportunity to learn from some of the best around. It will also assist Hurricanes to further develop players no matter what age range they play in.
Hurricanes Softball Club is thrilled to announce Striker's A Grade Mens' have merged with our Club from this season. These fantastic guys, some who have represented Australia will be playing week nights against some other great teams. Be sure to get down to the Hawker Diamonds to watch the excitement during summer.
