Aussie T-ball to get more kids playing sport

2011-09-07

The Australian Baseball Federation has launched its new participation program Aussie T-Ball.
Aussie T-Ball is a modified version of baseball that will be implemented throughout baseball clubs, schools and Active After-school Communities centres across Australia to encourage more kids to play baseball.
'It's very pleasing to see the Baseball Federation use the $150,000 in additional participation funding from the Australian Government to develop the Aussie T-Ball program,' Ms Brodtmann said.
'Aussie T- Ball is a program that encourages young kids to have a go without the pressure of serious competition. It provides another fantastic option in the Active After-School Communities (AASC) program.'
'The AASC program provides about 3270 schools and out of hours school care centres with sport and physical activities thanks to the support of $44 million from the Australian Government.'
'The Government wants to get kids out of the lounge room and onto our sporting fields, to reduce rates of obesity and increase participation in sport.'
Minister for Sport Mark Arbib said the Australian Government was a strong supporter of baseball through encouraging more young children to participate at the grassroots level as well as in high performance sport.
'The Australian Government is committed to supporting our elite baseball players and has invested $1.3 million to help our best players train and perform at the highest level,' Senator Arbib said.
'In total the Australian Government provides more than $1.6 million in annual funding to the Australian Baseball Federation.'
