Baseball NSW congratulates the Macarthur Senior League team on their impressive campaign that saw them earn their way to the Gold Medal game against the Southern Mariners.
They fought tooth and nail in a riveting Championship game that did not go their way in the end. The Macarthur Senior League team should be extremely proud of their efforts in the Gold Medal game and throughout the National Championships.
We would also like to acknowledge the resilient Cronulla Black team that ended the tournament in fourth - again, doing NSW proud.
Baseball NSW are now taking registrations for the 2021 Womens Development Program. The program will focus on the fundamentals of baseball, progressing to more advanced drills throughout the 8 weeks. The development program is open to female players aged League Age 13 and above. Girls who are League Age 12 from the 2020/2021 Season may be considered after a trial process to ensure the minimum skill level is attained for the safety of the participants.
The program is scheduled to run at Hammondville Oval, Hammondville on a Tuesday & Thursday from 6:30pm – 8:30pm – Baseball NSW understands that this venue can be challenging for our northern families to attend and thus we are asking for Expressions of Interest from players who would be keen to participate in the program, should a northern venue be available – we have tentatively booked Greenway Park, Cherrybrook, subject to minimum numbers being achieved.
Please let us know via the registration form, if your daughter would be keen to participate at a northern venue on a Wednesday & Friday.
Should there be sufficient numbers, Baseball NSW will run both venues subject to minimum registration numbers being achieved.
Tuesday and Thursday nights - 6:30pm to 8:30pm
Venue 2 – to be confirmed subject to numbers
Wednesday and Friday nights - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
The program will commence Tuesday July 13 and concluding on Friday September 3, 2021.
The cost of the program will be approximately $550 and will be inclusive of all field hire, coaching levy, equipment costs and uniform requirements.
Registrations for the program will close 11.59pm Sunday 13th June 2021
Baseball NSW will once again be conducting our Emerging Pathway Program (EPP) for 2021 and are now calling upon players who wish to trial for this program.
The Emerging Pathways Program (EPP) will be held over 8 weeks, conducted by BNSW through July and August. The program will focus on the fundamentals of baseball, progressing to more advanced drills throughout the 8 weeks. The Emerging Pathways Program is open for Players born 1 September 2005 – 31 August 2009 (League Ages 12-15).
The EPP will aim to further enhance the skills of club and Association based players, catering for those who are not exposed to higher performance programs. Grahame Cassel will lead this program and will be assisted by current Sydney Blue Sox, NSW State team and Development coaching staff.
We will be conducting the program at 3 venues across the Metropolitan area of Sydney, with 40 players being selected for each venue –
Trials for the program will be held on the following dates:
Tuesday 1st June – 6pm to 9pm
Thursday 3rd June – 6pm to 9pm (if required)
Diamond 2, Blacktown International Sports Park (BISP), 81 Eastern Road, Rooty Hill.
Registrations will close at midnight on Monday 31st May.
While NSW Health authorities are working to trace new COVID-19 local infections, COVID restrictions have come into immediate effect across the Greater Sydney area (including, the Central Coast, Wollongong and Blue Mountains):
If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild, get tested immediately and self-isolate until you get a negative result.
Last Friday, April 30, the Little League International Board of Directors gathered virtually for its annual spring meeting, where the core topic of discussion and deliberation was our plans for the summer tournament season.
We will be sharing this information publicly at 2 p.m. Eastern Time today, but we wanted to share the announcement of the recommendations of the 2021 Little League International Pandemic Response Advisory Commission approved by the board with all of you in advance.
The Commission, with the support of National Jewish Health of Denver, Colorado, and our Operations staff, developed a COVID-19 Mitigation plan for organizing and holding Little League Region and World Series tournaments. National Jewish Health has successfully developed similar health safety plans for youth and young adult-focused organizations, summer camps, colleges, and universities.
Based on that comprehensive mitigation plan, which includes detailed testing protocols, vaccination requirements, contact tracing, and limiting the exposure of our participants to potential infection, the Commission issued a series of recommendations that were reviewed and approved by the Board of Directors.
With the careful consideration of all participants physical and mental well-being, the following actions were taken:
As Hugh E. Tanner, Chairman of the Board, said during our meeting, this is our first step toward returning to normal Little League International activity. Certainly, we are disappointed that, in the face of these difficult times, that we must once again limit our tournament opportunities. But we are also encouraged that we are going to be able to provide that dream of participating in a Region and World Series tournament for so many of our baseball and softball players, especially those in that magical 12-year-old season after so many lost that opportunity last year.
We know that you will have many questions as you start, or change, your plans locally. We will communicate effectively with all of you, and your leagues, to support your efforts this summer. We will be emailing league and district officials in the coming days with information about Tournament Enrollment that will open on May 10, the Affidavit Process, and guidance on holding your District, Sectional, and State tournaments.
We have also developed a series of Frequently Asked Questions regarding this decision and its impact on our local leagues that will be available on LittleLeague.org. As will additional Tournament Resources and educational content throughout the coming weeks.
I encourage you to watch our Facebook Live presentation at 2 p.m. However, if you are not available, you can preview that video here.
As always, thank you for your selfless commitment and leadership to the Little League program.
Stephen D. Keener
Little League President and CEO
