Centrals WIN JL Championship

Congratulations to Caydyn Hancock, Ben Mocrieff and Caige Kazmierowski who took out the inaugural Junior League National Championship on the Gold Coast during the Easter Holidays. These students represented the Central Firebirds and beat another team form Perth (North Metros) to take out the titles. They will now represent Australia against Asia in June.
We look forward to seeing their progress as they take on the best charter teams from the Asia-Pacific region, for a chance to go to the JL World Series!

Allan de San Miguel was named the MVP for the Championship series, as he collected the massive hit in the 10th inning of game two, driving in the winning runs to keep the Heat alive.

Week 1 in review!

The 2015 year has started well and student's have begun to settle into their classes. It has been a very busy week with students in years 7-9 engaged in a "Big Day In" workshop.

On the Baseball front;
 Year 7's-  have had an introduction session with a quick cardio workout in the weights room.
A warm-up game, throwing drills and introduction to our 6 F's for fielding. Today we introduced our Hitting absolutes with plenty of swing practice in the the cages.

Year 8's- have had an introduction session followed by our 6 F's for fielding and footwork in the hall. Students have completed a "values and culture" workshop to help determine what our program should look like both on and off the field. Today we had a mass hitting session in the cages with an emphasis on our absolutes.

Year 9/10's- had an early morning introduction and work out in the weights room. Some students took advantage of an optional session on Wednesday morning also. Thursday we had a big workout beginning with our "values and culture" workshop, followed by a good hitting session in the cages. We then hit the diamond for some cuts and relays and a game of 2-pitch. I was happy with the intensity of the work-out as we push to get better and take pride in practising perfect!

Year 8's working on fielding fundys in the hall.


The Perth Heat will be chasing another ABL title as they take on the Adelaide Bite in a best of 3 series starting tonight at Norwood Oval. 
Perth Heat is well represented by graduates of the South Fremantle Specialist Baseball Program, with Matthew and Sam Kennelly, Allan de San Miguel and  Daniel Schmidt all playing big parts in the success of the Heat this year.
Watch the games live on ESPN Australia from 4.30 pm WST this Friday, Saturday and Sunday(if needed).
You can follow each game online by clicking here on the Perth Heats official website. 

Good luck to all the boys! GO HEAT

Welcome to 2015

I have attached a link to an introduction letter for 2015. This should answer a few questions that you may have to begin the year.

I am really looking forward to 2015. Baseball is gaining momentum in Perth and Australia and let's hope we can continue to develop this great sport here in Perth. It is up to each individual to put in the effort to getting better every time they go out to practice.

Welcome 2015
