Baseball Victoria is pleased to announce a new partnership with Sixteen23, a Perth-based baseball development group that will be running their first Victorian program during the upcoming summer school holidays.
This is a new and exciting direction for the beloved Baseball Victoria school holiday camps, as Sixteen23 will be bringing their Sandlot Little League Camp and a 12+ Camp to the local baseball community. This program will combine skills development and game play with a fun and lively environment to keep kids entertained and active throughout the school break.
This partnership will further improve the tradition of offering opportunities for young players to get involved with baseball during the school holidays. With plenty of fun to be had and memories to be made with new friends, this is the perfect program for kids who want to improve their skills under the leadership of professional baseball players.
The 2019 Sandlot Little League Camp will run from 7th – 11th of January at Cheltenham Baseball Club from 9.00am-3.00pm daily. The first day will concentrate on skills and testing before participants are drafted into teams, with the next four days featuring a round robin competition where players get to partake in nine games before a home run derby to finish off the program.
The camp is open to boys and girls of all abilities who are eligible to play Little League, and the program offers a fun, safe, and healthy atmosphere where participants learn from Melbourne Aces stars including Luke Hughes, Allan de San Miguel, Darryl George, Christian Meister, John Kennedy and more.
The 2019 School Holiday Camp for Ages 12+ will take place the following week on January 14th - 16th at Essendon Baseball Club from 9:00am - 3:00pm daily. Sixteen23 will provide players and parents with an introduction to the Victoria Aces High Performance Pathway with player assessment results added to the Aces' High Performance tracking database.
Baseball Victoria CEO Justin Huber is thrilled with this partnership. “We can’t wait to see what the Sixteen23 team accomplishes with this program. We have been on a difficult journey over the last few years with our school holiday offering. We understand the need to provide a quality experience to our participants and this is a key driver in our retention strategy. We believe partnering with Sixteen23 will give this program the kick it needs and the enthusiasm that will no doubt result in many smiles.”
Sixteen23 Director Luke Hughes says he’s confident this program will have a positive impact on young baseball players. “It’s exciting to partner with Baseball Victoria on our first program here,” Hughes said. “We’re all looking forward to having a lot of fun, and getting kids out having a blast on the baseball field.”
The camp is limited to 100 participants, so those interested are encouraged to sign up soon to secure their spots.
