Junior Presentation and Connexxion Awards Night

March 2nd:

Our Junior Presentation and Connexxion Award Night was held on the 1st March, and once again, it was a well-attended event with the club rooms full of kids and parents.

This night is one for all T-Ballers, Rookie ballers, Little League Minor (both Friday and Sunday Teams), Little League Major, Junior League and Senior League teams.   Awards for each team are handed out to those individuals who have performed exceptionally as judged by the team coaches.

In addition, Connexxion Awards were presented to a player from each team recognizing those who represent the core values of our club, not necessarily the best player, but the player who trains well, listens, implements instructions, and displays good sporting behaviour.

Our major junior sponsor is Connexxion Business Solutions.  They are an IT company based in Canberra, and provide much-valued sponsorship of our junior program.  Much of the new equipment at the club purchased this year are from funds generously donated by Connexxion.

Our Connexxion Award Winners for 2016-17 are pictured below:
