I would firstly like to acknowledge both Teams who competed at their best during the Nationals. I was quietly proud of the player’s efforts. It was fantastic to see both U16 and U18 play off for the Gold. Our coaching staff did an awesome job in preparing the teams over the last 12 weeks.

A big thank you to our Head Coach’s, Dan Wilson (U16) and David Badke (U18) who were fantastic in managing playing time whilst balancing each players performance.

Personally, it is positive to see how far all the players have come since early 2019. The off season programs have played a massive part in setting a foundation for their success. Though it was a fantastic result and memories have been created, this year was just a blip on the radar for our young baseballers progressing through the Pathway Programs and beyond. Our aim is for our individual players striving for positive holistic outcomes and I am expecting this year’s result will assist with their progression.

I will be sitting down with the coaching staff shortly to review the program. The outcomes from this meeting will commence the early stages of preparation for our 2020 Off Season Programs.

Before the Off Season commences, we still have our Youth and Open Women Teams preparing for their Nationals. The Youth Team are looking at repeating their results and our Open Team have put together a plan to improve their result from 2019

Lastly I would like to acknowledge all the parents supporting our Pathway Programs. Your support is always greatly appreciated.

Thank you to all who contributed and made it a memorable Australian Youth Championships.
