Information for a fun season.

At the Outfielders, the aim of the game is fun. All players are welcome, no matter your experience level. Our rules are slight modifications on the Softball Australia slowpitch rules. Team captains will explain rules to new players throughout the season.


COVID-19 safety

We follow NSW Health advice to keep our members safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our COVID-safety plan includes:

  • requiring all members to check-in at games

  • sanitising bats and balls between players/innings

  • avoiding the sharing of gloves and helmets

  • strongly encouraging vaccination.

Equipment and uniforms

For each game, we provide a kit bag which includes bats, balls, bases, helmets and gloves.

We encourage players to bring their own helmet and gloves to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Second hand equipment is often available for sale online.

Many teams purchase uniforms throughout the season. Speak with your captain about the team's ordering process.

Season structure

Our season functions in 2 parts:

  • a round robin, where you'll play each team once

  • a bracketed a 'wigs' and 'heels' division, where teams play off for spots in finals against similarly ranked teams.​​

Social events

Teams are invited to unwind after games at The Bat and Ball Hotel on Cleveland Street.

We also host several events throughout the season, including a Christmas party and our End of Season social.

Playing fair

Our code of conduct outlines our values of respect and sportspersonship.

Leading on the field

We expect our captains to model our values and demonstrate leadership.

Resolving disputes

Captains and umpires should address disputes in line with the rules.
