Junior Spirit staff announcment

Softball Australia would like to advise Junior Spirit Assistant Coach Heather McCann and Physiotherapist Rebecca Yip have unfortunately withdrawn from Australia’s 2020 WBSC U18 Women’s Softball World Cup campaign due to work commitments.

Heather McCann’s role with the Tokyo 2020 Olympics World Television Coverage Organisation now conflicts with the recently confirmed Junior Spirit pre World Cup schedule and Rebecca Yip will be spending time with the Australian Open Women’s team during the National Professional Fastpitch League in the United States as well as duties with her full-time role outside of softball.

Softball Australia thanks both staff members for their hard work and time with the Junior Spirit program up to this point.

The WBSC U18 Women’s World Cup to be held in Lima, Peru from 23 – 30 August, the Junior Spirit will aim for a sixth medal in international competition to add to Australia’s swag of five bronze medals.
