As a reminder, 2020/21 registration for the first of the Baseball WA Youth Girls programs is open through 25 September.
Pony Girls Futures
The Pony Girls Futures (formerly known as Youth Girls Development Program) is an ideal way for female players to grow and develop their skills in an all-girl environment. It is held annually in Term 4.
Players will train once per week and play on Sunday afternoons, however during the first two weeks both the midweek and weekend sessions will be "Spring Training" for all teams combined at the Baseball Park. This will see players training as one group under the guidance of the expert coaches.
Game scores are not kept, allowing coaches to put players in positions to gain valuable experience that girls often miss out on if only playing Saturday juniors. This includes pitching, catching and key infield positions.
It also also ideal for girls currently playing or graduating from tee-ball to gain valuable skills development to prepare for Little League and the Pony Girls League.
The program is for female athletes aged 10 through 14 years old and will take place across October & November.
Program cost: $80 includes team cap and uniform top hire.
Registration is now open HERE. Please note that registrations have been much stronger than previous seasons and there are limited spaces left, so get in quick!
Pony Girls League
The Pony Girls League will once again offer all females of League Age 13 to 16 the opportunity to play in a "league of their own." Registrations for this program will commence in late July.
All players will be able to select from a menu of available clubs who have advised BWA they are interested in fielding a girls team.
The purpose of the League is to provide teenage girls with a competitive game environment to compete, participate and develop.
The BWA registration cost will be $80 plus each club will have an additional cost, which is reflected in the drop down menu when you select your club. The BWA registration fee component shall provide you with a numbered player tee shirt and WA Women's player cap, both to be worn on game days.
Games will be played each Sunday afternoon and some midweek times - your club will advise you of training day information. Where clubs do not have sufficient players to field teams in their own right, BWA will group clubs together to create joint teams.
Training for the 2020-21 season will commence in early December.
At the completion of the League, and subject to COVID-19 restrictions, an All-Star team is selected to play in the Pony Girls Baseball World Series in July - more information on this exciting opportunity is available HERE.
