Under 14 – Boys & Girls
Under 14’s local competition is a mixed competition with boys and girls playing in the same team. At this level throwing, catching, hitting, and pitching are more advanced than the Under 12 level. Understanding of the game becomes more in depth, learning defensive and offensive attack plays against the opposition. Also learning about being a good sports person and handling winning and losing and having fun are emphasised. Under 14 players are eligible to play in the Bundaberg 13-19 years School Representative Teams and then go on to be part of the Widebay 13-19 years School Teams. There is also under 14 and under 16 Association representation teams at this level with the opportunity to play up to Australian U14 and under 16 level.

Head Coach: Tony Briggs
Tony Briggs is reasonably new to softball only playing for 3 years. He got involved in the sport when his eldest son took it up at the age of 14 years. He has played softball with all his family playing in different divisions from the juniors to seniors. Tony’s boys needed a coach for their u14 team, so he put his hands up. He started coaching to learn more about the game and to encourage his boys to work hard to improve their own games. Tony is coaching the u14 team with help from other coaches within the club. Giving him guidance during training sessions and during their games.
