Softball ACT’s Annual Australia Day carnival will be held 26-28 January 2019, coinciding with the Australia Day long weekend once again.
Why not come down and join us for a weekend of fun competition, laughs and some cracking softball and teeball!

Softball 13+Under, 15+Under, 17+Under, 19+Under – Boys and Girls teams in all divisions!
Teeball is mixed – anyone and any combinations of boys/girls can play in the same team!
Softball is based on gender* although we may combine divisions pending team numbers in some areas.
The 2019 Australia Day Carnival will be played over the period Saturday 26 January – Monday 28 January.
All games will be played in the immediate vicinity of the Hawker International Softball Centre, Hawker, ACT.
Entry to the carnival is $550 for each team, regardless of division.
Our accommodation partners YMCA Canberra have terrific accommodation options for both teams and parent groups, and can be contacted for a special ‘Softball ACT rate’ by emailing Chrissie – Chrissie.Erickson@ymca.org.au. Make sure you mention you are coming for the Australia Day Carnival when booking to attract the special rate.
Each team MUST supply an umpire that is nationally accredited.
Teams are encouraged to bring a second nationally-accredited umpire, which will provide a refund to your team of $200 post-tournament.
All umpires are expected to be available for the entire tournament.
Tournament registration will close on 12 January, 2019.
More information will be provided in the coming weeks, including the handbook and associated rules.
