Interested in becoming a host family?

As a club we have decided we may need to have an import for the 2014/15 season. For this to be possible we need to have a host family or families willing to open up their home.

The duration of their stay would be from approximately September 2014 through to March 2015, we know this is a lot to ask of just one family so we are open to the idea of splitting this between 2-3 families with a minimum of 8 weeks in one home, as not to disrupt the player to much. 

During this time host families are asked to provide a bedroom with a bed and easy access to a bathroom facilities, access to your home with their own keys and to provide all meals as required. Beyond that we only ask that you provide a welcoming environment and simply make them feel like they are at home. Of course if this is something you are interested in there would be finer details to be agreed upon between the player and host family.

The benefits for you and your family are many, if you have a son or daughter who plays baseball the mentorship will be invaluable. These imports have played competitive baseball for most of their life and have the skills and knowledge that I am sure can only benefit your family and also a bond that will last many years to come.

If this is something you would be interested in please drop us an email at vikingsbaseballtuggeranong@gmail.com

Vikings Registration Dates

Tim Dutton chosen for 2014 U15 IBAF World Cup Team!

Tuggeranong Vikings Baseball would like to congratulate Tim Dutton on his selection in the 20-man squad participating in the 2014 15U IBAF World Cup!

"Dutton, along with 3 other Canberra players, Mark Zhang, Julian Paramonov, Jordan Coffey all were chosen in the 40-man squad and attended the 15U World Cup selection camp on the Gold Coast recently.

Over the course of the training camp all 4 players demonstrated their skills and athleticism in front of Australia’s State High Performance Managers, State coaches, and the national coaching staff.

Dutton made a huge impact at the camp, being chosen in the 20 man squad that will travel to Mexico from 31 July to 10 August. This event has established itself as the premier international baseball event for this youth age category, with the best under-15 baseball players in the world representing their countries."
