Girls training with the Pros

The event will be held at Melbourne Ballpark on Saturday 21st December from 10.00am – 2.00pm.  Cost to the girls is only $25.

This is a fantastic initiative by MLB, the ABF, the Melbourne Aces and also BV.  The ABF and Melbourne Aces have organised for 16 members of the current Australian Women’s Squad to fly into Melbourne as part of the Aces “Women’s Weekend”, and these girls will coach at the Clinic, along with members of the Victorian Blue Women’s Team.

This clinic is a great opportunity for junior girls in Victoria.  This is the first clinic of its kind in Victoria, and it is really important that the clubs get behind it and show their support. 

The possible benefits to clubs is significant.  If you have even one junior girl playing at your club, it could be the chance for them to see other girls playing, and also be coached by females for the first time.  This clinic could inspire young girls to continue playing baseball rather than moving on to other sports.  It could end up providing a future female leader at your club who becomes the catalyst for a women’s program that you never thought possible.
