Joining the Sharks

It doesn’t matter whether you’re 5 or 50 or even older, anyone can play baseball or a modified version of baseball. Males and females of any ability can enjoy the sport of baseball right here in the Sutherland Shire and St. George District.

The Cronulla Sharks Baseball Club provides a safe and enjoyable environment for players of all ages. It’s a great sport for parents, grandparents and friends to watch regardless of the age group or ability.

Teeball (5 to 8 year olds)

U8’s and U9’s play a modified version of baseball called teeball. Players are usually grouped together in similar ages and skill to ensure they enjoy the sport. Regardless of their ability everyone gets to bat, run, field and throw.

Zooka (8 & 9 year olds)

Zooka is the next step in the progression to play baseball. The rules are very similar to Teeball however the ball is delivered by a Zooka Machine, which pitches the ball towards the batter. Zooka is played by U10’s and is a fast and exciting game.

Baseball - Juniors(10 to 16 year olds) Seniors(14+)

There are slight variations of baseball for juniors leading into the full field senior version of the game, however the principles are same. Almost anyone can play baseball, it’s a fantastic sport built on the skills of individuals who combine to work as a team.

When & how to join

Summer – Junior & Seniors

Registration generally starts as the winter sports come to a close. The club usually takes registrations followed by a 2-3 week grading process to ensure players are graded with similar players. Juniors play under the CSJBA Association while Seniors play under the CSMLBA Association.

Approximate Dates

  • Registration - July
  • Grading - August
  • Competition  - September - March (Includes Christmas break)

Winter – Seniors only

As the summer season draws to a close those who just can’t get enough baseball can play through the winter. The St.George Baseball Association winter competitions have traditionally been strong and usually have more registered senior players than summer.

All enquiries should be directed to the Cronulla Sharks Registrar
