Head Coach: Karen O'Neall
Karen has been playing softball since primary school and coaching off and on since High School. She is a current Level 1 and working on her Level 2 and is also a Level 1 Scorer. She started coaching in Ipswich because no one knew the game well enough and she had played for a few years already. Karen coached and played there for a few years before moving away. She started coaching again because there weren’t enough coach volunteers to coach her children how to play the game of softball. Karen has also helped coach representative teams of different ages as well as her children’s teams as they have come through. She enjoys coaching children and likes watching them develop into players of the game and helping them to love the game as much as she does.
If you are interested in becoming a scorer for Bargara Softball Club. We run a short, one day course at the start of most seasons. This is a great way to get involved with the Club and be a part of team even if you are not interested in playing.
For coaches wanting to extend their softball knowledge to include basic skills and how to play the game, there is also the formal coaching pathway of coach education and accreditation through Softball Australia's Coaching Program.
