Soft­ball on the plate at Ju­bilee Oval

Dubbo Photo News - - Sport -

STACEY Walker from the Dubbo City Soft­ball club has sent in some pho­tos from a re­cent Come-and-try Day at the soft­ball di­a­mond on Ju­bilee Oval.

Fol­low­ing that suc­cess­ful day, the com­pe­ti­tion pitched off on Oc­to­ber 17, and to­day (Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 31) teams are lin­ing up for round 3.

“Ours is a mixed com­pe­ti­tion start­ing at 14 years of age and ev­ery­one is wel­come. New play­ers can be ac­com­mo­dated,” Stacey said.

I love the phi­los­o­phy the club shares:

“Some­times you get the per­fect catch. Some­times you hit the ball

per­fectly and some­times you fall on your face, twice. But sport is about get­ting back up and try­ing again and over­com­ing your fears and chal­leng­ing your­self to do bet­ter and be bet­ter every time you play.

“Try­ing a new sport is scary. It’s a new set of skills to learn and a real pos­si­bil­ity that you won’t be the best, but just by try­ing, you’re al­ready 100 per cent bet­ter than the per­son sit­ting on the coach or laugh­ing from the side­lines.”

Why not go along and see the play­ers in ac­tion and maybe sign up for the rest of the sea­son! Go to www. face­book.com/dub­boc­i­tysoft­ball
