We are fully committed to our Junior Baseball program and heavily invest both time and money to provide each and every child the opportunity to play the best they can play and have the best experience they can have whilst playing our great game.

We at the Upwey Tigers believe that the kids are our future.  We centre our program around having fun whilst teaching them the essential fundamentals of baseball that will set them up for the years ahead.  We surround our kids with positive, constructive, team orientated structures where team work, encouragement and self belief are promoted.  

We provide experienced coaching staff overseen by a Junior Development Co-Ordinator responsible for overseeing the entire Junior Coaching staff ensuring that our kids get the best and most up to date coaching available.  We have a dedicated Junior Operations committee solely responsible for the smooth operation of our Junior Baseball department.  

 Our clubrooms are warm and friendly where every person is welcomed with open arms.  We are the only club in the Baseball Victoria system currently operating 2 major Junior National and International Tournaments each year. We are also proud to have 3 home grown players that have ‘gone all the way’ and played Major League Baseball in the USA as well as Japan and more than 10 that have been signed with minor league clubs in America over our 52 year history .

Our baseball complex comprises no less than 6 solely dedicated fully fenced, Division 1 rated and approved baseball diamonds that are meticulously maintained by a dedicated home grown volunteer base.  Our canteen is open on all game and training days offering a variety of value for money, fresh food and drinks.  We are fully licensed and are an approved Level 3 ‘Good Sports’ club.  We have a dedicated and fully stocked merchandise shop with everything from uniforms, to training apparel and baseball gear.

If you or your child are thinking about starting baseball just give one of our friendly committee members a call and we will be happy to discuss the variety of options available to you.  We can organise club and clubrooms tours, try out days as well as give you all the information you need to make an informed decision.  

Yours in baseball,
