The primary focus of Sunshine Baseball Club is player development. We believe in developing fundamentally sound baseball players which will not only translate to success on the field, but will also prepare each player to compete in higher level baseball and beyond, if they so desire.
We believe there are four main areas of player development :
- Each player must have a personal desire to improve.
- Each player must be given ample opportunity in both practice and competitive game settings.
- Each player must show dedication beyond regular practice and games sessions and be held to a high standard to improve in their individual skill level.
- Need to have passion, commitment, and a strong work ethic. None of these will happen if there is no desire to succeed.
Our club places great emphasis on the development of a positive environment in each and every situation. Each player will be taught and expected to exhibit character traits including, but not limited to respect, teamwork, sportsmanship, perseverance, discipline and hard work.

ON GAME DAY
All players are expected to arrive at the ground at least one hour before the start time to warm up prior to the game. If for some reason you are delayed, or cannot make it, you must notify your coach. In the event of poor weather, you must still arrive at the ground for your team to be able to qualify for a wash-out, this applies for both seniors and juniors alike.
