WHO CAN PLAY?
Baseball caters to boys and girls of all ages. Our club competitions fall into the following age groups:
Under 8 MighTee ball & Aussie T-Ball
For boys and girls aged from four to seven years of age. MighTee ball is a modified game of baseball that allows children to develop fundamental skills and learn the basic concepts and rules of the game in a friendly, family oriented environment. Batters hit the ball from a tee to start each play. Teams consist of six players which allows for maximal individual participation.
U10 Rookie Ball
Rookie ball is a form of baseball where coaches pitch to their own team in order to increase the chances of success for young hitters. Teams generally consist of nine or ten players.
Little League (U12)
This is the first age group where the players pitch against the opposing team and the game more closely resembles true Baseball. Little Leaguers that are selected to play for their League (Region) at the District (State) titles have the opportunity to play (all expenses paid) in Hong Kong (Asia-Pacific Little League Titles) and Williamsport P.A. U.S.A. in the Little League World Series.
Baseball - U14, U16, U18 and U20 age groups
From the age of 12 boys and girls can play in age specific Baseball competitions. Players in these age groups are also eligible for selection to play in the annual age specific State and National Titles. Australia also send an U17 and an U19 Team to the Junior World Championships. Many young Australian players that represent their State go on to have lucrative professional Baseball careers with professional baseball organisations in America, Japan and Europe.
Senior Men’s, Women’s and Mixed Competitions are also played at all levels from beginners of all ages to Majors competitions.
