    SOFTBALL

    Depending on numbers we normally have one senior boys team and one senior girls team.  This is open to any year level from Year 9-13. Beginners and experienced players are all welcome.

    Competition runs in Terms 1 and 4.  All teams play on a Wednesday afterschool (3:00-4:40pm) either at Burnside High School, Mainland Softball Park (Pages Rd), or at other local schools.  Teams may also enter the South Island Secondary Schools competition held in different locations each year around the South Island. This tournament usually runs in March and Burnside has a strong record of achievement at this level. Teams may also have the opporftunity to qualify for the National Secondary Schools Tournament.

    Uniform will normally be supplied, otherwise Burnside High School PE gear is expected.  Gloves are available to use.

    Registration and trials will be held early in Term 1 and at the end of Term 3.  Look out for the reminders in the student notices and on moodle.

Although a minority sport at Burnside High School, softball has a very proud representation at international level dating back to 1973.  Click on the link to see more...
