Dates Confirmed – Winter Academy

Softball Victoria is pleased to advise the dates for the inaugural Winter Academy.

The academy will be held across six consecutive Saturdays, starting from Saturday 18 July at Waverley Softball Association. Session times for the opening session will be staggered at 11am, 12:30pm, and 2pm.

Registrations officially close next Thursday 9 July at 5pm.

Registered athletes will receive an email on Friday 10 July advising what session they are allocated to. Weeks two-to-five will be held from 1pm-3pm – venues to be advised.

SV reiterates that as per the advice of the Chief Medical Officer, any player and/or family who reside in a postcode under lockdown are not permitted to attend any sessions.

Individuals residing in the lockdown areas are only permitted to leave home for four reasons: food and supplies, medical and caregiving, exercise and work and education if it can’t be done from home.

All attendees are expected to comply by the Victorian Government’s guidelines, including the following:

  • Activities that promote a minimum social distance of 1.5 metres;
  • Spectators for training and competitions must abide by public gathering restrictions – spectators should be in groups of no more than 10 people in open, outdoor venues and spread out around the ground or venue;
  • Clubrooms can be opened with a limit of 20 people in clubrooms at any one time; strict social distancing rules apply including adherence to 1 person per 4m2

For more information, please review the SV Return to Activity Guide:

SV encourages that this is an enjoyable learning experience for all athletes and families.

We ask that any individual that is sick or subject to lockdown abides by the rules. If you have any symptoms, please get tested and social distance.
