The Developing Sox coaches are pleased to announce the U15 Girls Team for 2018. The naming of the team comes after training camps conducted in Wellington and Auckland over the winter months.
A 15 strong team will travel to Caboolture, Queensland to compete in the U17 State Championships in September.
“Training programmes, game knowledge and individual specific skill development will be the focus for the next two months, “ says Developing Sox Head Coach Anthea Stringer.
“Creating a good team culture, with a high work ethic by both players and coaches will be the basis of our campaign. This will be their first taste of wearing the fern which is an honour at any age. With two of our team values being “respect” and “commitment”, we have no doubt this team will hold high standards that will establish them in the game for many years to come,” she says.

Telfer Appointed Developing Sox Assistant Coach
Southland’s Chris Telfer has been named as the Assistant Coach to the DSX Girls Team. Telfer a member of the Junior Black Sox 2001 team will have no issues aligning with Stringers coaching style given their working relationship with the Southern Pride Women’s Team. The appointment is well deserved given Telfer’s contribution to the game, a contribution recognised by Softball NZ by winning the 2016/17 Volunteer of the Year award.
