I AM A MEMBER OF THE NARRE WARREN SOFTBALL CLUB WHICH IS PART OF THE CASEY SOFTBALL ASSOCIATION/SOFTBALL VICTORIA/SOFTBALL AUSTRALIA. I HAVE BEEN PLAYING FOR 10 YEARS AND HAVE BEEN A MEMBER OF THE AUSTRALIAN DEVELOPMENT TEAM FOR 4 YEARS. I HAVE REPRESENTED VICTORIA IN OUR NATIONAL COMPETION SINCE I WAS 13 YEARS OLD BEING ONE OF THE YOUNGEST TO PLAY AT THIS LEVEL. PLAYING WITH VICTORIA I HAVE PLAY IN NEARLY EVERY STATE IN AUSTRALIAN ( EXCEPT NT).
Value to the Individual
IT IS A FANTASTIC SOCIAL SPORT AND SINCE MY FIRST SEASON I HAVE ENJOYED EVERY SEASON. IN MY SECOND YEAR I GOT A TASTE FOR OUR REGIONAL COMPETITION AND HAVE MADE MAY LIFE LONG FRIEND ALONG THE WAY BOTH IN MY LOCAL COMPETEION AND FROM OTHER REGIONS AND INTERSTATE TEAMS. THIS GIVE ME A GREAT FEELING OF BELONG TO THE SOFTBALL COMMUNITY. WHEN I TORN MY ACL IN 2014 AND REQUIRED RECONSTRUCTION SURGERY I THOUGHT MY SOFTBALL CAREER AND MY OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY FOR AUSTRALIA WAS OVER BUT WITH MY MENAY FRIEND AND COACHES SUPPORT I HAD THE SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT TO CONTINUE MY DREAM OF PLAYING FOR AUSTRALIA IN JULY 2016.
Why the funds are needed
AS THIS TRIP IS 100% SELF FUNDED THE MONEY WOULD ASST IN PAYING FOR THE NEW AUSTRALIAN UNIFORM, NEW KLEETS, PROTECTIVE GEAR SUCH AS HELMET AND GUARDS. IF THERE WAS ANYTHING LEFT OVER AFTER THESE ARE PAID FOR A NEW BAT OR GLOVE AS THESE ARE ALWAY EXTRAS I CANNOT BUY EVERY YEAR.OUR TOTAL TRIP IS IN THE VACINITY OF $15000.00 SO I WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THESE WITHOUT PARENTAL FINANCIAL HELP. THEY HAVE DONE SO MUCH SO FAR FOR ME TO REACH MY DREAMS TO PLAY FOR AUSTALIA.
