Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,
My Name is John Edwards and I am the new club coach for the Weston Creek Indians. I have had an extensive playing career having played at the Professsional, College, iInternational and ABL level, and now some just know me as Mitchell's father.
I will be looking to build on the great work of Jason Sloan who came ver so close to delivering a 1st Grade Flag last year. In order to be successful at not only the 1st grade level but at every level of the club, we have to work harder and smater than ever before.
On Sunday 31st July at 5pm, we will be holding a Club preseason meeting and dinner at the Weston Raiders Club. I strongly urge all club players to come along as I layout in detail our schedule for the pre season leading into the first game.
We will be undertaking gym sessions at Gold's Gym Fyshwick, Indoor skills sessions at Weston Indoor Sports and when weather and council permits, sessions on our home field at Stirling.
The indoor sessions will be $10 a head and we would need 20 peple to cover the costs. Sessions will be conducted so that each player received 300-500 swings and plenty of ground balls and throwing. It will be well worth the price of admission.
There will be no costs involved for the Gold's Gym sessions. A detailed program will be provided for you to complete in pairs.
I will be expecting a lot this year in terms of effort and work rate and our journey to glory begins today. I strongly recommend all players, men and women to attend this meeting. Thankyou and I look forward to working with you all for an exciting 2016/17 Season of Indians Baseball.
As we have done during the past, the Indians committee are looking to ensure the competitiveness of our 1st grade team and overall club in general. In order to achieve this, we are hoping to host possibly 1 or 2 overseas import players for the upcoming 2016/17 Season. However, before we can begin to explore any such arrangement we desperately need the help of the Indians Baseball Community.
So... can you or anyone you know become a host family willing to open up their home and hospitality to a US or Canadian baseball player for the duration of the 2016/17 Season?
Ideally, the players would be in Canberra from early October 2016 to late March 2017. The committee understands that hosting a player is a lot to ask of just one family and so we are open to the idea of splitting the time between 2 or 3 families (minimum of 8 weeks per family), which broadens the players experience and doesnt overburden a single host.
The host family would need to provide a welcoming environment, a separate bedroom for the player and generally accept him as another member of their family unit. For its part, the club would provide the player with a vehicle for transport purposes and an employment opportunity to ensure he can earn some money during his stay. Accordingly, the player would then be expected to contribute a nominal fortnightly amount to assist with household costs such as food & utilities.
So, if you or anyone you know thinks they could help the Indians by hosting an import player for the 2015/2016 baseball season (or part thereof) then we’d love to hear from you.

Thank you for your consideration.
