Over twenty women took up the opportunity to participate in a free 4-week introductory Softball program for women in Casey.
Held at Casey Central Park, the women and their children braved the wintery conditions to learn the basics of softball through a range of skills, drills and fun modified games of softball, run by coaches Sarah Papadimitriou and Kylie Whitecunas.
The program was a resounding success, achieving the aim of encouraging women and their children of all cultures and abilities within the City of Casey to get active through a fun and inclusive physical activity and providing an opportunity to connect with other women in the local community.
The program was developed through a partnership between Softball Australia, City of Casey and Casey Softball Association through City of Casey Council’s ‘We Are We Can We Will’ program and Softball Australia’s ‘Strike Out Barriers to Sport through Softball’ program.
Participants now have the option of continuing their involvement in softball through various programs and competitions offered by Casey Softball Association.
