Belgravia Baseball/B5 Club has recently been formed to grow Baseball 5 (B5). Our goal is to work with Baseball Australia and the Perth Heat to grow participation in B5 and provide a pathway to the sport of baseball. We are located at Loftus Recreation Centre in Leederville WA so are well positioned to facilitate the growth of B5 in the Stirling area.
Baseball WA is pleased to offer tee-ball as our Club Connect offering. Tee-ball is a sport for young boys and girls and is fully inclusive where every child gets to bat, field and run the bases. Our program will focus on every student having fun and being taught the basic fundamentals to enable them to enjoy the sport and develop confidence, especially in those who have not played diamond sport previously. Ideally, tee-ball is suited to the younger primary student however we would be happy to run the program for children of any age.
Baseball NSW is excited to offer Baseball5 as a club connect offering. Baseball5 is a five on five, five innings modified version of Baseball and Softball that can be played anywhere. The game originated in Cuba over 50 years ago and is a big part of Cuba’s social/cultural identity. The game, Baseball5, is also popular in South America, Asia & Europe. Unlike traditional baseball/softball, no bats and gloves are required to participate. The game was designed to be played in small spaces (20m x20m) such as playgrounds, grass, synthetic, indoor centres, and/or any other hard surfaces. The only equipment you need to play the game is a rubber ball.
