Juniors pay for the age they are classed in by the league, however they could be playing in a higher grade at our club. If the league classes your child as T-Ball age, but they are playing Under 11s, do not register and contact Sharee Forrester directly.

Please contact our Uniform Co-ordinator Sharee Forrester directly if you need any playing shirts as soon as possible at email@example.com.
Club merchandise is available via Emmsee Sportswear and will be expanding range in coming days. Our main training shirt colour is Royal Blue.
Gavin Payne, our Director of Equipment, House and Grounds will be hosting a Working Bee to get our grounds up to scratch for summer on 11 September from 10am.
Please come in before or after training, as there is a big list of jobs to do and many hands make light work for everyone.
We look forward to your continued involvement in our club, stay tuned for more updates.
