*** INDIANS SENIOR TRAINING COMMENCEMENT 2021 ***

If you recently registered an interest in playing senior baseball Pre Christmas 2021 and are keen to get the arm rolling over, you'll be glad to hear that club training will commence this week at Stirling Oval from 5:30pm to 7:30 pm.
 
However, please note that in accordance with the strict COVID restrictions relating to outdoor group activities (25 maximum), we must limit how many players attend each session. 
We therefore ask that you please adhere to the following training schedule;
  • TUESDAY EVENING:    Only players that nominated to play in 3rd & 4th grades are to attend training
  • THURSDAY EVENING:    Only players that nominated to play in 1st & 2nd grades are to attend training
IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO NOTE:
  • If you are feeling unwell, do not attend any sessions.
  • All participants will need to put their name on the attendance register upon arrival.
  • Please adhere to social distancing principles as much as practicable.
Should COVID restrictions ease in the following week, you will be notified of any changes to the above schedule.
 
As well as normal baseball gear, players should also bring a pair of running shoes (sneakers) as these may need to be worn instead of cleats, depending on the current state of the infield grass.  
 
The sessions will be a chance for all players to get some light throwing / hitting in prior to the season commencement on 14 November 2021.
 
Information on the proposed junior season & training schedule will be provided as it becomes available.
