Hello Dodgers World,
As some of you would be aware, Baseball Victoria have given the green light to return to training from Monday 25 May. Training will have a different look to it as we continue to fight the virus. Currently, we are awaiting the council’s approval to access the pavilion again. We will continue to keep you all updated on the training and pending season. In the meantime, please head over to the BV site and register for the return to training. This is a free registration but will be required before you are allowed to train. Also please contact our secretary Jordan Russell via the links email or phone to let him know you are playing or for more information.

See you on the diamond soon!
At this stage, most of you would be aware that the April 7 date has been moved to April 14th. The DBA is considering what the season will look like whilst taking in the government mandates and input from BV.
We, The Berwick Dodgers Committee, are looking to work with the DBA to develop contingency plans for a shortened season, should that become the case. Just like all of you, we cannot wait to take the field.
The DBA will be meeting with BV and the rest of the winter associations on Tuesday and will provide us with further details as soon as they have them. We will continue to do the same for our Dodgers family.
Hello Dodgers Family and Supporters,
As all of you would be aware, we are facing a lot of challenges with COVID-19. For the baseball community, the biggest challenge has been the mandates from Baseball Victoria and Baseball Australia.
Those mandates are in place to keep all of us as safe as possible and we, as a club, will support the DBA, BV and BA in upholding these guidelines. At this stage, there will be no club functions, training, meetings or gatherings until 7 April. The good news on this front is that the 7 April date will fall 11 days short of the start of the season. This will leave us little time to prepare physically for the season but we can overcome that.
For now, I would encourage everyone to hold off on registering with BV for the upcoming season until we know with certainty that the season will proceed. We are expecting the season to go as normal from the date the bans are lifted but the virus environment is ever changing. In saying that, the medical community is making great progress and I am hopeful that they will have all fears alleviated in the very near future.
Once we have the all clear, we will work to get all club registrations completed and ensure that every player and member is registered with BV through the Sportsdesq Platform. In the meantime, if you intend to play, please contact myself or Jordan Russell via the details on the “About Us” page to let us know you are playing. I appreciate your continued support and patience at this time. We will endeavor to keep everyone updated as we get the updates.
The Berwick Dodgers will be hosting the Annual General Meeting at the clubrooms on Wednesday the 19th Of Februrary at 8pm.
It would be good to get as many people there as possible and attendance at this usually short meeting will help the club to elect an exectutive and committee so that we can begin preparations for what could be an interesting winter season.
Hope to see you there, if you have any nominations for executive or committee, or would like to put in your apologies please email our current secretary Sharni
