Junior Baseball at Doncaster

Doncaster Baseball Club caters for all ages and all levels of experience.  Our Summer Junior competitions run from early October through to early March.

Friday Night T-Ball

Our junior program starts with our entry-level Friday Night T-Ball program on Friday evenings, 6:00–7:30 pm. T-Ball caters for beginners aged from 5–8 years old.

Friday Night Rookie Ball

From T-ball our juniors transition to our in-house Rookie Ball competition. This program is for 7­–11 year olds and incorporates training drills followed by coach-pitched games. We have several teams that play against each other on a round robin basis. This program also runs at Deep Creek Reserve on Friday evenings, 6:00–7:45 pm.

Our Friday Night programs are a wonderful family environment, running on warm summer evenings under lights at Deep Creek Reserve - what a wonderful way to finish the week. T-ball and Rookie ball run from Oct – Dec, resuming late Jan – early March with a break over the school holidays.
