In the 2013/14 softball season I played in the Southland and Mainland teams at the Jubilee Cup, U17 & 19  age group tournaments.  At the U19 tournament I was selected for the tournament team.  I was also selected for the Southern Pride women's team to attend the NFC tournament in Christchurch, from competing in this tournament I was then named in the New Zealand U19 girl's development team to travel to and compete at the Friendship Series in Sydney Australia.  It was a great tournament where we placed 5th overall.  After attending this tournament I was later selected in a training squad made up of 28 girls for the junior White Sox, we travelled up to Hastings for the training camp where we were pushed to our limits mentally and physically.  Next year this squad will be narrowed down to a final number of 17 girls who will travel to the 2015 junior World Series in Oklahoma.  The team will be announced on February 22nd after the NFC final.


If you need to workout what grade a child will need to play in this year, aged based grades for the 2014/15 season are based on a child's age as at 31 Dec 2014
