North Coast Ball Club is set to go through a transformation with the unveiling of its new logo and new name. The club is now known as the North Coast Breakers.
Club President Antony Carter is excited by the announcement.
"North Coast has been discussing having a name like Carine Cats, Wanneroo Giants etc for as long as I can remember but no one has ever been able to decide on one," Carter said. "One thing that has always been said is that it should be something coastal, I put a proposal forward during last season that we run a competition and see what names we got. Once we had the names, the committee got to decide which ones they wanted, these were then the names that the players got to choose from and vote on, that being everyone from teeball to baseball."
"Breakers was chosen by the players. Then came the design which we asked the members for once again. We eventually ended up where we are now - the wave around the ball signifies the ocean so the colour had to be blue. We are still maroon and white and needed something that would stand out. We are currently looking at new club supporter tops, jackets, hoodies and a new hat which will just have Breakers written across the top. Our aim over the next two seasons as sponsorships expire is to ensure our tops have the new logo on."
With the club (along with Alkimos) moving into its second season as part of the Sun City Little League charter and the move to appoint a charter Development Officer to assist with coach and player development, the future for the club is positive.
"We are excited to see where the future of these clubs in this growth corridor takes the sport", said BWA Participation Programs Manager David Hayes. "It is important that kids are getting a good quality baseball experience including good coaching and being retained in the Sun City area. North Coast is certainly making good steps to ensure this is happening and a refreshed brand reflects the club's approach to developing the game in the area."
