It all starts May 17th with a Come ‘n Try & Registration Day at Fawkner Park.
The Melbourne Softball Association will be holding a series of pop in days in conjunction with the 2014 Disability Sport and Recreation Festival.
The sessions commence at 5:30pm on Tues Dec 2nd, Weds Dec 3rd and Thur Dec 4th and everyone is welcome to attend. We can be found at the North Pavilion in Fawkner Park, South Yarra
Please register below and we look forward to seeing you in the park
The aim of the festival is to encourage people with a disability to try a sport or a recreational activity in an environment that is inclusive and supportive as well as helping to raise awareness of the opportunities available to them.
After successfully hosting the softball component of the Special Olympics National Games at Fawkner Park last month we are now turning our attentions to helping out with the festival by offering pop in days on the 2nd-4th December in conjunction with our regular slowpitch activities. The evening will involve a come ‘n try session from 5:30-6:30 pm followed by a game.
Please share this around to any family or friends who you think might benefit, or if you think you can spare an hour or two on the above evenings we’d love to see you in the park.

The 2014 Disability Sport & Recreation Festival is Victoria’s premier event for the disability sport and recreation sector. Running from 1 to 7 December, this unique community event promotes and celebrates physically active lifestyles for all people of all abilities through participation in accessible and inclusive sport and recreation.
The Festival is run by Disability Sport & Recreation, a Victorian charity committed to improving the health outcomes of Victorians with disability through sport and recreation.
In order to ease the burden on our administrative volunteers as well as making it easier to comply with our insurance requirements all teams and players must register online.
Players are to register prior to, or no later than 24 hours post their first game.
