Welcome to Melville Mariners Tee-Ball Club (formerly East Fremantle Tee-Ball Club). That’s right, we’ve changed our name and well you might ask why? Let me explain…
The Club has had a long association with its home base at Marmion Reserve so we felt we needed a name that better reflected its location in the heart of the City of Melville. We also wanted to give the parents, carers, families and the kids themselves something more tangible as an identity, previously missing under our old name. The name ‘Melville Mariners’ was selected amongst a number of entries in a competition held amongst our members at the end of last season. The name Melville Mariners reflects both our location within the City of Melville, our proximity to the Swan River as well as heritage from nautical themes around the Port of Fremantle.
So, we’ll be sporting a new uniform this season and the kids will be looking the part.
A few key dates for your calendar:
· Saturday 24thth September. REGISTRATIONS CLOSE (Please note we will not be accepting late registrations)
· Saturday 8th October 4-5pm. ALLOCATION DAY (Note the new date)
· The weekend commencing Friday 14th October. SEASON OPENER
· Annual Mariners Sundowner – Friday night 11 November
Melville Mariners is affiliated with the Tee-Ball Club of WA and our values are strongly aligned to theirs, being;
- Fair Play.
- Fundamental Skills.
- Family Involvement.
Let me please expand on that last point, Family Involvement, as it underpins the success of all the others. The effective running of the club and the season relies on volunteers and without these we, and your kids, find the going tough. We’ve enjoyed good support in recent years from many of you but we could always use more, so… this year we will be calling on more support from parents and carers to actively engage with their kids and teams.
For those returning for more and those ’newbies’ just signing up, a warm welcome to what is a new chapter for our Club.
