We are excited to announce a new partnership, called The Diamond Sports Western Australia (DSWA) between Baseball WA, Softball WA, and Tee-Ball Association of WA. This alliance aims to enhance diamond sports in Western Australia through strategic collaboration.
A Diamond Sports Western Australia Working Group will aim to achieve our shared goals in diamond sports by sharing our knowledge, experiences, and strategies with each other. We recognise that the pathways in diamond sports have not been clear and strong enough in the past.
Our main objective moving forward is to increase participation in tee-ball and provide better structures and programs to aid the transition to baseball and softball as players develop their skills. As soon as our young athletes advance to baseball and softball, our aim is to establish more effective pathways that assist them in transitioning to either sport or making it easy to participate in both.
Our diamond sports athletes have achieved great success at various levels such as club, charter, state, national, collegiate, professional, and Olympic. We believe that working together can further enhance this success.
This strategic alliance will not result in changes to the current staff, offices, facilities, or boards of the three governing bodies.
As a group, we strongly believe in Western Australia's rich history in diamond sports and aim to build upon it. Our dedication to every community, club, and stakeholder involvement in these sports is rooted in creating a positive influence that will benefit generations of families and players to come.
