This season, working alongside the Kapiti Coast District Council, we have been working on our putting batting cage set up at Te-Atiawa Park, Paraparaumu - which, if all continues to go well, will be completed by April; this project includes:
Container to house our batting machines, including an automatic loading machine
Power to the site, with spotlights and fully alarmed
Smart lock to deliver off-season training access
Fully fenced in cage
The batting container will allow our softball communities / local schools and the wider community to use a state of the art training facility all year round; it will also help generate income for the club (which is not-for-profit) which will allow us to continue growing our grassroots programme. We are working hard to increase female participation and keep kids in sport throughout their teenage years - we think we have done a pretty good job, and our club has a great family environment.
This is one of the biggest fundraisers the club has undertaken in the last ten years, lots of blood sweat and tears have already gone into this project, and we are nearly finished, one more major fundraiser will get us over the line.
