What’s On

Try Baseball / Spring Training session (Sunday, 21st August)

Forest Baseball Club will be hosting another ‘Try Tball/Baseball’ day in conjunction with a ‘Spring Training’ session for our younger returning players.

Join the fun this Sunday, 21st August (1pm to 3pm) at Aquatic Reserve, Frenchs Forest (next to Warringah Aquatic Centre).

Try Tball / Baseball: Tball / baseball is a great game for girls and boys aged four and up. Focusing on the fundamental skills of throwing, catching, striking a ball and sprinting. Have a go at hitting from a tee or a  zooka machine and participate in some fun, small-sided games. Bring along some friends and meet new ones!

Spring Training: For our returning players, we will have the Zooka machines out (we have 7 working Zooka this summer!) and will also look to utilise the fields (weather dependent) to do some live hitting and fielding.

Join the fun this Sunday, 21st August (1pm to 3pm).
