President's Welcome

Dean  Square

To all Rapids Families, Players and Supporters,

Welcome to Rapids Baseball Club and to the 2018/19 baseball season. This year sees four new members to the Rapids committee. We have all had big shoes to fill from those that stepped down at the end of the last season, however we have all worked hard recruiting new players, chasing sponsors and trying to make this the best year yet!

Last season saw our club with nine junior teams and three senior teams. We hope to see everyone back for this season as well as many new faces.

To all of you that have volunteered for positions for the upcoming season we sincerely thank you. As you know volunteers are the backbone of all sporting clubs. There are many opportunities for volunteers at the club to be involved and make a difference, so please do not hesitate to contact your team manager or myself if you wish to help out and join this great team.

Some of our players were lucky enough to make rep teams, with our senior players stepping into coaching roles for these teams. All our coaches are accredited and if you are interested in coaching, umpiring or scoring we are willing to assist you to become accredited. 

Our club is well represented with fantastically maintained fields, fully equipped batting sheds and a fully established gym which is run each year by our very own trainer. Plus, stay tuned for some huge upgrades to our newly air-conditioned club house (that is available to hire, or free for members!) We encourage you all to use these facilities throughout the season.

We look forward to a fun and successful season.

Go Rapids!
