What Happened Last Year?

Softball NSW and Orange & District Softball Association hosted the 2023 Under 12 State Championships with fourteen teams from across the state featuring in both the Boys/Mixed & Girls competitions respectively. The state championship was a great success with fun across the diamonds, despite the weather interruptions on Day 1 the weather turned in our favour to bring action - packed softball on Day 2. Both championships were tightly contested with our brightest softballers eager to showcase their skills and talent. The Grand Final for the Under 12 Boys/Mixed featured both Campbelltown & Penrith City played in a thrilling and exciting game of softball with Campbelltown prevailing over Penrith City 7-6. Furthermore, the Girls Grand Final featured rivals Manly Warringah and North Shore with Manly Warringah proving too strong in a shutout performance against North Shore defeating them 9-0.
