The National Regional Championships will be held in January 2020 at similar times to the events this year. As soon as Softball Australia confirms the dates there will be communicated to the relevant people.

An exception to this is the U18 Boys National Championship which may be held earlier due to the World Championships being scheduled for February 2020. Once the dates for this event are finalised, they will be communicated to the relevant individuals.

Head Coaches for State Teams will be contacted to arrange a suitable interview time. Interview timeslots will most likely be between the 12th and 21st March depending on the number of applicants.

The campaign for each of the State Teams is focussed heavily of the development of our athletes and as such Head Coaches should be prepared to discuss this as part of their overall plan.

There may also be some extra time requested of the Team Manager prior to the National Championships to assist with the planning of trials and other relevant tasks.
