Softballers Will Put On The Green & Gold

Last week Softball Australia announced their 2018 Australian U19 Boys’ Squad, which included one current and two former Academy athletes. Alex Gutteridge, Hayden Shaw and Chris Rutherford will make their way to Ormiston in Queensland this July to compete in the 2018 International Friendship series training camp and competition.

The last 12 months have been particularly big for current Academy athlete Alex Gutteridge. Alex was recently part of the Penrith City U17 & U19 representative teams, both teams winning the 2017 State Championships.

Preceeding Alex’s selection into the Australian U19 squad, he captained the 2018 NSW U17 side that won the National Championships in January 2018.

Alex has been with the Academy Softball Program since 2016 and has taken part in various educational seminars including drugs in sport, nutrition, injury management & prevention, sports psychology, as well as a range of technical skill components lead by Head Coach Brett Kirk.
