Softball Opportunities for Junior players

AcademyMelbourne Softball as always is keen to provide opportunities for young girls and boys to enjoy and experience our great sport.  To this end we are offering two programs which will run simultaneously over a six week period.

 SOFTBALL BATTER UP(4-10 year olds) and SOFTBALL ACADEMY(11-16 year olds)

We are grateful that members of our Panthers Club, led by Belinda Rae and Trish Bennett, have put their hands up to conduct the program on behalf of Melbourne Softball.  You will all be aware that Panthers have some great people and very experienced softballers, both on and off the diamond, in their team and they are more than capable of offering a program that is exciting, enjoyable and beneficial to all that attend.



(NOTE: the dates provided on the registration page (once you click the Register Now link of the Softball Batter Up page) are currently incorrect, as is the program price. Please note correct dates and price above.)

The price for each program will be $50 and includes a new glove and ball for each participant.


Junior Academy

Softball Batter Up 

SBUWe do need some assistance. You can assist by:

  •  spreading the word as widely as possible encouraging juniors to register for the program
  •  bringing along any young people interested in softball to join in – they can register on the day
  •  putting up your hand and or seeking volunteers from your club to help Panthers*
  •  coming to the park earlier to support and cheer on the juniors, do some public relations work with the parents (potential senior players fastpitch or slowpitch)

*If you have any members interested in giving young people a GO, teaching them why we love softball and the skills of our great sport, here is an opportunity for them to come along and help Panthers, and learn some tips as they get involved.   Interested individuals should be available from 10am – 12noon for each week of the program and should register with myself Via EMAIL ; their intention to join in.
