Baseball Victoria is pleased to support Maribyrnong Sports Academy (MSA), the first state government funded specialist sports school program in Victoria.
MSA offers fantastic opportunities for aspiring athletes to pursue their sporting dreams while also receiving valuable education. Junior baseball players can certainly benefit from this Academy, which was established in 2006 and currently provides scholarships to 575 student-athletes who participate in a range of sports, from cricket, soccer and AFL to baseball and softball.
In this high-performance environment, students can thrive in both sport and education. This environment is underpinned by the Academy motto of ‘Pride in Performance’ and its core values of honesty, respect, community, leadership and determination. Student-athletes within the Academy are coached, taught, trained and mentored on a daily basis by teachers, coaches, dieticians, psychologists and sports scientists, including a staff with 740+ AFL games playing experience, 5 Olympians and numerous national representatives. The individuals who work at MSA have significant experience with professional athletes, professional clubs and the Australian Institute of Sport and Victorian Institute of Sport.
Baseball Victoria will be working more closely with Maribyrnong Sports Academy in the future, in order to provide more opportunities for junior baseball players to grow, develop and thrive. This includes an upcoming Twins Little League Training Session on Wednesday, 3rd April when the team will be able to use the hockey field and cricket nets while parents can go on a tour of the school.
On Tuesday, 26th March, MSA will be holding a Year 7 2020 Parent Information Night. Although this session is completely booked due to high demand, MSA will be live streaming the information night for anyone who is interested in learning more.
