Over the Easter weekend (18-21/4) we sent a Cardinals team to play in the Canberra U12 Invitational tournament & good time was had by all.
After two close losses on the first day (against the teams that eventually finished 1st & 2nd), we responded with 5 straight wins over the next 3 days, before going down in our last game.
Although the game results weren't really that important as the tournament is all about providing some additional development for the kids, resulting in everyone needing to either pitch or catch over 4 straight days of baseball - all achieved within a tournament that was played in the right spirit throughout.
Throw in a game of mini-golf & a training session on the Cavalry's main diamond/batting cage - there was plenty of memories/smiles within the group.
In addition, we had the parents involved in many of the support tasks for the team, which resulted in a great 'team effort'.
