Under 13 Development Program

Under 13 Development Program

The 2017 Softball Victoria U13 Development Program is an exciting initiative designed to provide our junior athletes and children new to the sport of softball with opportunities to play and develop their skills. 

Tony Black and Belinda Ainslie have been appointed to run programs for both our boys and girls through July, August, and September and Softball Victoria would like to thank both coaches for their commitment to ensuring our future stars continue to develop the skills required to excel at the highest level.

Softball Victora would like to clarify that as part of the U13 Development program those athletes who are not selected to be part of the teams going to the Labour Day Tournament in South Australia will be invited to continue to train  in the program as part of their ongoing development. Any queries regarding the program can be directed to Softball Victoria Athlete & Coach Performance Manager, Simon Blundell, via coaches@softballvic.org.au.

Any coaches who are interested in being part of the program should contact Tony or Belinda directly. During the program a squad of talented young athletes will be selected; with the plan to then hopefully compete in the Labour Day Tournament in Adelaide from 29 September to 2 October.
