Girls Development Program The Baseball WA 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 the first two weeks both the midweek and weekend sessions will be "Spring Training" for all teams combined at Baseball Park. 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 - including pitching, catching and key infield positions.
We highly recommend this program to:
Girls playing junior baseball
Girls coming out of or currently playing tee ball or softball
Girls who have not played diamond sports before or have not played for some years
This is the perfect lead-up program to the brand new Under 17 girls competition. Four squads are planned located North, East, West and South - these venues will be announced once locked in and will be the training and playing venues from Week 3 onward.
Program cost: $105 includes team cap and uniform top hire.
Pony Girls League The BWA Pony Girls League will offer all females of League Age 13 to 16 the opportunity to play in a "league of their own".
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.
Whilst winning and losing is part of any League, individual enjoyment and improvement is the main focus.
The BWA registration cost will be $55 and this is required to be paid by credit card as you proceed further. Each club will have an additional cost - this additional cost 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 - 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.
At the completion of the League, an All-Star team is selected to play in the Pony Girls Baseball World Series n July.
