Fastpitch (Softball) Ireland are delighted to announce the launch of the Munster Softball Academy with an Introduction to Softball Session for girls aged ideally between 12 and 16 in the Munster Region. The session will be held indoors on Saturday, February 26, 2022, from 1.30pm at Nemo Ranger GAA Club Facilites.
The session will be hosted by the Irish Women’s National Team Head Coach Melanie Cunningham together with Munster Development Officer Cindy McGrellis and other National Team Coaches focussing on introducing players to Softball and teaching some basic skills.
Speaking on the planned day, Melanie Cunningham said ”Following on from the success of launching our Dublin Junior Academy in May 2021, the aim of the session is to show an alternative pathway for girls to continue in sport and to hopefully introduce new girls to our sport. We are excited to introduce girls to this fun Olympic sport and we are hoping that we get a great turnout on the day, everybody is welcome!”
Fastpitch Ireland will provide players with all equipment required on the day. The session will be run in accordance with COVID-19 Sporting Conditions.
If you have any questions about the session, please do not hesitate to contact Cindy McGrellis [firstname.lastname@example.org].
