Geelong Softball Association, with their passionate and dedicated volunteers, have worked tirelessly in the pre-season to get back on the diamond safely as sport in Victoria slowly returns.
With support from Softball Victoria including a range of hygiene and signage products to ensure a safe environment for all participants and to adhere to COVID safe and Victorian Softball Return to Community Participation Guidelines, the Association is returning to the diamond with a Softball Batter Up Program for children starting on Thursday 22 October.
Geelong are amonsgt the first in the sporting community to re-commence in Victoria since COVID-19 restrictions in regional Victoria were eased to allow for Junior Sport to recommence.
“We are extremely excited to be getting back on the diamond, starting with the Softball Batter Up Program, and giving children in Geelong and surrounding regional areas the opportunity to get active again and connect with others in a fun and safe environment,” said Carolyn Christie, Secretary of the Geelong Softball Association Carolyn Christie says,
So far eight children have registered for the program and the association anticipate a few more by Thursday with many local schools and kindergartens promoting the program in their newsletters to families.
