The Pirates are looking to strengthen our playing poster for the upcoming Sydney Winter Baseball League (SWBL) season. 2011 saw us compete in both the 1st & 2nd Grade Grand Finals and we will look to further that success in 2012.


We invite all elite & aspiring elite (15-17 year olds) players to step on the diamond and see if you have got what it takes to be a Pirates Major League player. Senior players playing in local association leagues are also welcome to trial.


We will also be looking to enter a 4th Grade team into the GWBA Minor League (Catering to current & future Major League U/18 & Junior U/17'1s players for the 2012/13 summer season). All teams will train under the SWBL Coaching Staff.


SWBL Practice will be on Wednesday night's (7pm) throughout the season. Attendance at training is required.

Players (eligible for summer 18/17s) aged 17-15 and under will be required at practice on both Tuesday & Wednesday 7pm. (Players selected in BNSW HP/TIP programs are only required, when available)
