Junior Baseball @ MBC

Malvern Baseball Club has junior teams for boys and girls to enjoy the great game of baseball from the age of 5 to 17. With teams playing on both Friday nights and Sunday mornings, there's plenty of opportunities and we welcome new players of all levels, so come along and give it a try!

 

Fridays night & Sunday Junior baseball

Friday night

Friday Night Junior competition during summer is a great way to get into baseball including Teeball, Little League and Junior league. The season kicks off at Malvern in early October and runs through until Feb/March with games played between 6-8pm.

 

Aussie Teeball (6-7pm Fridays)

A great game for boys and girls aged 5 through to 8/9 with a strong focus on having fun while learning the basics of baseball. Malvern is always looking to increase the number of kids playing Teeball at the club, so new players are always welcome.

                                                 

Little League

Little league is an International program that sees one Australian regional team represent Australia in the Little league World Series in the USA every August. http://littleleague.org.au/World-Series

Little League is the step up from teeball for the under 12 age group. Malvern is part of the Australian Little League program and our players have the opportunity to participate within our local charter group to gain selection in a Charter representative team. This team then plays for the chance to represent Australia in the annual Little League World Series in USA.

Players from the Friday night competition can be selected to Sunday morning rep teams which compete across the Melbourne Metro area. You don't have to have played teeball to play U12s so new players, as always, are welcome.

Junior League

Junior League is the U14 version of Little League with games within our charter planned for Friday nights. A charter representative team is selected to compete in state championships during January 2015.

Players from the Friday night competition can be selected to Sunday morning rep teams which compete across the Melbourne Metro area.

 

Sunday Representative Teams U16 & U18

Sunday has a metro and/or state wide competition that is a great opportunity for players to represent Malvern against other clubs.

Malvern will once again have junior rep teams playing in the Sunday morning competitions. The Sunday morning competition is a great opportunity to take your baseball to the next level and represent Malvern with games played every Sunday morning from 9-11am.
