Baseball Victoria Registration

As well as registering with us, you also need to register with Baseball Victoria (BV) at the beginning of each season you intend to play. For your reference, the DCBC play in the winter season.

There is a cost associated with your BV registration which covers player insurance and Baseball Australia costs. This is payable to BV and is separate to the DCBC club fees.

 

The cost payable to BV will vary depending if you are:

  • Senior playing Winter season only

  • Senior playing Winter and Summer

  • Junior playing Winter season only

  • Junior playing Winter and Summer

  • Junior playing in Senior competition

You can complete your BV registration HERE

Junior Age Group Cut-offs

A child is eligible for an age group provided they have not turned that age by 30th September of the current year. eg. If a child is still 14 as at 30th
September, then he/she is eligible to play under-15s that year.

 

What do i have to buy/equipment

Now you may want to buy every piece of baseball kit under the sun, that's up to you, but you do have the option to use our club kit. As a minimum you will need to purchase a club cap, playing top and a training top (for seniors). You will be required to wear grey pants, a blue or red belt and football boots or baseball cleats. A popular baseball store web site can be found HERE

Club Chat App

For all communications about activities, events, game information, team selection and general questions we are currently using.

This is only for DC Baseball Club to use and is a safe environment due to only members being approved.

It is important that all players/juniors/guardians register with this app so they can be notified of important information.
