Men – A Grade
If you enjoy a little competition, Softball is the game for you! A grade is a grade where our Junior Representative players can also play to improve their individual skills. Getting to play against men of a higher level, challenging themselves playing the game they love. You’re never too old to play softball! Male pitchers have been clocked pitching at up to 85 miles per hour or 137 km/hour using the underarm motion. Even though softball is predominantly a Women’s sport, men make up approximately 29% of all participants. Despite the name, there is nothing soft about a softball.

Head Coach: Daniel Heading
Daniel Heading otherwise known as Heado. Dan is also reasonable new to the game. His first season of playing he learnt the hard way to slide resulting in him requiring knee surgery. He loved the game so much and didn’t like watching from the side lines he took up coaching. He coached the Bombers Men’s Team with help from other players within the club. He is in his third season of coaching and now has returned to the game as a coach player.
Masters Men's Teams
For those of us who are a little longer in the tooth and enjoy the game, we have a Master’s competition in Australia. Masters competitions and events are for participants 35 years of age and older. There are many national and international Master’s events, all of which offer physical activity in a social environment and festival atmosphere. Softball is one of the highest participant sports in Master’s games.
