Div 3 Blue

After a successful tilt at the premiership in div 4 last season the ladies are now competing in Div 3.

So far the season has seen an opening loss then 3 consecutive draws! Our first win is just around the corner! The ladies are keen for success, I have a feeling our best is yet to come

 

Div 3 Black.

Despite a rocky start to the season the girls have gelled really well and are improving every week. We currently have 1 win and 1 draw from our first 4 games and would like to thank all the players who have filled in when required.

Special thanks to Donna for her batting sessions and to Ollie for being our designated runner every week.

After a tough training session the team relax over a “well earned” bevvie at the Carine Tavern. Whilst the majority of the girls are total novices, their determination and enthusiasm is inspirational.

On the diamond they are no pushover, they strive to win!

The girls are totally grateful to the junior players that top up the team on a regular basis, Courtney, Ollie and Hayles thanks a million!

To our sometimes scorers you are the best, thank you

MVP Voting

As you know in years gone by we have always had voting slips and envelopes

This year the coach is to issue his own 3: 2 and 1 votes and keep

a spreadsheet or similar to be bought to the “Vote Count Night” at the end
of the season.

All coaches are to attend; date to be advised!

Your team trophies will be ordered on the night, 3: 2 and 1 votes are only

for fixture games not finals.

The votes are not to be confused with the votes the umpire issues

for association MVP s in your scorebook.

4 trophies per team

MVP

Confirmed by the votes

BATTING

Ascertained by the batting stats

2 coaches choice trophies

In the event one player takes out MVP and batting they receive a larger
trophy for both awards

The coach then receives 3 smaller trophies to hand out

(concur with your scorer re your weekly three, two and one votes after each
game)

Comments From The Chair

Season is moving along very nicely, we have a wonderful supportive committee and coaching staff, sincere thanks to them all.

Our club is very much a family orientated club with players transitioning from Teeball to softball or baseball.

The softball division caters for the social through to elite players, inaugural season for junior winter ball last year was very well received, the men’s competition will be fielding a Cats side next season too.

Head coach Donna Titheradge’s vision has paid huge dividends to us as a club, state and Australian team representation and New Zealand pick ups are all due to Donna and her staffs dedication.

Donnas’ passion being development the younger players in our club, we are most fortunate to have Donna and the excellent coaching staff in attendance at Cats.

Level one and two coaching courses were completed last season, First Aid also being part of our grant, grants play a very big part of our club, we are a not for profit organisation.

Keeping players on the diamond with the best possible playing equipment is another reason Carine is one of the largest clubs in WA, our generous sponsors play a huge role financially and we are most appreciative of them all.

Carine Cats Under 15 Blue – I’m currently Coaching another great group of girls who stepped up to the challenge of Under 15’s from the two Carine Cats Little League Teams. These girls are fast developing into a good bunch of players with great training sessions run by Donna Titheradge and Sam Skillingstad.
