Little League (U12) Tryouts 28th August 2016

Tryouts have been scheduled for 9:00am to 11:00am Sunday, 28 August 2016 on the main diamond. It is very important for everyone to be there as we will be deciding what division/s we can field teams in.

The great news is that the coaches conducting the tryouts will be our club's very own Major A coach, Russell Teichmann, and PHLBC's own Bandits players, David 'Goofy' Sutherland and Daniel Nilsson.

We are still however looking for an u12's coordinator so if you think you have the skills to fill this very important position please contact the club President, Graham Vankan on 0450 156 116 or .

Big shout out to Paul Hardie and BJ Ball Papers for covering the unexpected cost of a late season need for more game balls.

Thanks for helping out the club.
