Winter Academy

Being a summer sport, it is sometimes hard for softball athletes to remain “game fit” throughout winter!

Softball ACT has developed the Winter Academy as a way to ensure players have the opportunity to continue to develop skills and fitness during the winter months, making the Winter Academy an important part of any softballers’ development pathway.

The primary objective of the Winter Academy is to provide athletes with exposure to a high performance environment by providing an individual based program for the athletes who show potential to progress through the Softball ACT Athlete Pathway.

Athletes will have the chance to be coached by a range of highly skilled and focused state coaches with club, state and national experience, and to be mentored by senior state players with national experience.


We welcome all softball players aged 10 – 19* years of age to register

The academy will be focusing on 3 main skills:
