We are working with our partners at Softball Australia to create a number of development tours as part of the Athlete Development Pathway. We are currently planning the following tours:
- U16 Girls & Boys – Japan (Oct 4 – 14, 2018). Regional tournament, additional games & Japan Softball League
- U14 Boys & Girls – New Zealand (April 2019). Games v NZ & Regional teams
- U19 Girls – USA (July 2019). College camp plus Aussie Spirit Fastpitch Pro League
The aim of the tours are to develop the next generation of national players, as well as providing career opportunities with the US College system and professional leagues. The key elements of the tours will include elite coaching from Australia’s best coaches as well as the opportunity to play top level tournaments and matches.
The tours are aimed at the highest standard of players, with players being given the opportunity to nominate to attend, however the final group will be selected by Softball Australia.
