Baseball Queensland Calendar for female events and programs

Baseball Queensland Director – Participation, Geoff Wade has taken the initiative to establish a Female Participation sub-committee which will be tasked with providing leadership in developing pathways and programs that cater specifically to female participants ranging from participation programs through to athletic development programs.

Attendees to the first meeting were:

Geoff Wade (Chair)
Andrea Marshall
Anna Day
Maureen Lessmann
Karina Connors
Alan Connors
Kevin Fenn
Shayne Watson
Gareth Jones
Apologies: Sally West, Mark Ready, Lisa Norrie

As you can see from the calendar the group has resolved to offer a State Titles event for Women and Girls in December with these events being another opportunity for females to stake a claim to a roster spot with the Queensland Bandits Women’s and Girl’s State Teams.

All female teams will also be entered into the Timberjacks Tournament in Lismore (July), the Gold Coast Classic (January 2019) and the Div II State Titles (April 2019) as a means to provide further participation opportunities.

A number of development programs will also be offered to assist females to improve their skills and develop the characteristics for success in baseball. Every Sunday in September will see a development program delivered at Bannister Park, Hendra.

Preparations are also underway to breathe new life into the local Brisbane based Women’s Baseball League, with more information to be released shortly.
