Game Season Information
Junior Grade is from 5 years to 9 years old
Grading is based on players age during the calendar year 1st January to 31 December
Girls may play one grade down if they wish to.
Season starts April 2018. The exact date will be confirmed closer to the time.
First weekend details are as follows:-
All games are at Meadowlands Reserve, on Meadowlands Drive. (Where Howick Softball is located)
Parking at Meadowlands
1. Be considerate about parking. Ensure you park well clear of resident's driveways.
2. Ensure rubbish from snacks/drinks when you return to the car are not left on the berms. People have been even known to empty their entire cars trash on the side of the road.
3 Most importantly to drive and park safely and supervise children very carefully when leaving and returning to cars.
Cars tend to drive very quickly up and down Alicia Road and small kids cannot be seen between parked cars.
Alicia Road is a narrow road when cars are parked on both sides. I have seen very many close calls when young children are allowed to get out of cars on the road side (Not the pavement side) unsupervised. Likewise when returning to cars after the games.
It is great to see so many kids enjoying themselves on Saturday mornings but it would be tragic for a serious injury or death to occur.
We want people to be safe and we want Fencibles to keep a good reputation in the area. I have often heard remarks over the past 2/3 years about how tidy the park is left after so many people have been there.
Registrations will close on 10 March 2018 and team allocations will be done after this and you will be advised via email.
