Softball Batter Up is a modified softball program that teaches fundamental skills through a series of FUN and SAFE games for kids.
As Softball Australia’s national participation program, Softball Batter Up, is designed to be fun, flexible and engaging for children (ages (4-8), focusing on fun activities while learning basic throwing, catching, striking and decision making skills.
The program will be adapted for all ages and abilities using the Game Sense and CHANGE IT approach. Softball Batter up activities align with the national health and physical education curriculum in schools, are written with the purpose of engaging children in physical activity and fostering a life-long love of sport.
The program includes an SBU Starter Set for each participant that contains an SBU backpack, bat and ball.
If you register 2 weeks before the program starts your equipment will be available from the program venue on the first day. Please note, if you have registered after this date, your equipment pack may not arrive before the start of the program, but it will get there.
Eastern Raiders is looking to recruit new players to the sport of softball and welcomes players of all ages and capabilities to join us. We field teams in all age groups from juniors (including boys teams at U12 and U15) through to senior A grade.
We encourage all family members to join in with our main focus on fun and participation. We like to see our players and parents become involved in coaching, umpiring, scoring and any other facet of the club where they feel most comfortable.
The Batter Up program is a great initiative to introduce the sport to the next generation in a fun, engaging way.
