Player Profiles – U18 Women
Softball Australia are pleased to announce the U18 Women’s team to compete at the upcoming WBSC U18 Women’s World Cup to be held in Lima, Peru from 23 – 30 August, 2020.
The team has been selected following the U18 Women’s National Championship held at Blacktown International Sportspark earlier in January.
A number of players have been listed as reserves and will be invited to compete in the Canada Cup as part of the Aussie Diamonds Pathway Program.
Newly appointed Junior Spirit Head Coach Chantelle ‘CJ’ James will lead the team and be joined by a host of qualified support staff ahead of the World Cup.
James and her staff will aim to steer the Junior Spirit to a sixth medal in international competition to add to Australia’s swag of five bronze medals.
