Working Bee

Working-Bee

With the new season about to start, we are holding our annual club working bee on Sunday the 11th of September from 8am until 1pm at Greenway Park.

The idea is to do some basic housekeeping around the diamonds so that they are in good shape for the new season.

We love to have at least 1 member from each family, come down and help out, even if you can only spare an hour or so. We have a good group of dedicated volunteers who come down each year to help, but it would be good to see some new faces so we can share the workload around.

Some of the items we require people to bring on the day.

  • Shovels
  • Metal Rakes
  • Brooms
  • Blowers
  • Pliers

Summer Registrations 2016/17 - Now Open

Registrations are now open for all players for the 2016/17 season.

 

register

PLEASE NOTE:  We currently have 24 players registered for our U19 division, which is 2 full teams. We will continue to take registrations to see if we can get enough for a 3rd team, which would only be 6-8 more players, giving each team 10-11 players. If you know of anyone who is interested get them to register now.

 


Thank You

Post season time and after taking care of business against Hawkesbury in the Minor Semi Final, and most recently upsetting Cronulla in the Final, sadly after earning a place in the Grand Final against Petersham. Sadly our fairytale season wasn't to be, but on a positive note it leaves us room to improve for next season.

We would like to thank all our loyal fans and supporters that helped us pack Petersham Oval for the blockbuster game, it is always nice to play in front of a crowd, and we wouldn't have been able to make this run with out all the cheering and support from the sidelines.

Greenway will be back bigger and better next year, looking to go one better, hopefully with a couple of grades too this time.

Thanks again Matt O'Neill, John Muldoon and Nathan Clissold.


Greenway supported Team App

We have decided as a club that we are going to support Teamstuff as the official club app, as it has a large number of additional components that will be help for to both the club and players alike.

teamstuff

If all Managers, once sorted, could email webmaster@greenwaygiants.org.au with their email addresses, and they will be invited to the club app which can then be used to establish a team and roll out to all the players/parents.

We thank you in advance for your support in this decision and look forward to another fantastic season of baseball @ Greenway.
