The Southern Region of the Northern Territory is legendary in the Softball world. The NPY All Stars team went through the NT Championships undefeated in 2015 and were crowned the best community Softball team in the NT.
To top this off Precilla DeRose was named Volunteer of the year at the NT Sports awards in 2016 for her efforts in 2016.
Softball NT have a vested interest in the community and were eager for their 2016 trip to the region. Unfortunately in 2016 there is no structured Softball on offer for the award winning women of the region.
Despite this the women organised a core group to attend training with Softball NT. The women self-organised attendance while Ally Aitken started discussions around organising inter community Softball games.
There are a lot of positives to be found in their region. True to their character the women despite lack of funding are organising their way to the NT Championships. The women are also organising their own independent Softball games to prepare for the defence of their title NT Champions.
