Softball ACT is proud to announce the launch of the Canberra Pride.
The Canberra Pride is a program for boys and girls interested in developing their skills, having fun, travelling to new and exciting locations to play teeball and softball.
If you are prepared and motivated to accept challenge, excitement and a taste of competition, then the Canberra Pride is for you!
In short – Canberra Pride is a travel-ball program designed to inspire you to play to the best of your ability and have fun!
As the only ‘big cat’ to live in a family group, the lion represents working together to achieve goals as a team.
The name ‘Pride’ and our logo showcases the way that we want to play – Tough. Fierce. Honourably, and with our softball Family.
Taking all the best parts of the Canberra Eclipse and Canberra Force programs (see our history here), the Canberra Pride is a participation program open to all members of our softball community.
Our kit is is navy blue and orange – you can check it out below.
Our purpose in creating this program is to align our participants – players, coaches, umpires, and statisticians – the lot.
Softball ACT is a small community – too small to act independently – we’re so much stronger when united as a Pride.
The key elements of the program are:
- Participation-based program for the enjoyment of all players
- Voluntary administrative positions appointed annually
- Central management by Softball ACT for transparency
- Minimal and transparent costs for tournament entry – not an additional budget line for Softball ACT!
Our volunteer administrators will sort out all the team fees, coaches, equipment and answer any queries on uniforms – all you’ve got to do is organise your own travel and accommodation!
It’s a simple process of nominating to play at a tournament and being placed in a team!
Tournaments that we attend annually include:
- Australia Day Carnival (Hawker, ACT – January Long Weekend)
- Waverley Easter Carnival (Waverley, VIC – Easter Long Weekend)
- Blue Blaze (Sydney, NSW – September/October School Holidays)
There will also be age-specific gala days and round-robin tournaments that teams will travel to throughout NSW and Victoria.
