Registrations for summer 2018/19 are now closed. 

Five Dock Falcons fields teams in the Pacific Coast Baseball League (PCBL) competition. The summer competition runs from September through to March while the winter competition runs from April to August.  Any player who is fifteen at the beginning of the season is eligible to play in the PCBL competition.

Round 1 of the Summer 2018/2019 season will be on the weekend 15/16th September 2018

It is notionally a Saturday competition, but because there are a limited number of baseball diamonds available, there will be some Sunday games scheduled. Usually, the draw for the full season is available from Round 2 onwards.

Gradings

Teams are graded from A grade to F or G grade, with usually 6 club teams in each grade. Two games of the same grade are played at the same park each weekend. In winter,  Division 2 from 12.30pm to 2.30 pm, Division 1 2.45pm to 4.45pm. In summer the games are played one hour later. Once you are allocated to a team you will always play either the early or late game but can ‘back up’ for the other team occasionally if they are short of players.

Playing Fields

Locations range from Five Dock, Balmain and North Sydney to Hornsby and Kur-ing-gai depending upon the teams placed into each grade.

Training

As Timbrell Park does not have lights, there is no weekday training during the winter season, but in summer general training is held at Timbrell Park from 6.30pm until dark on Wednesdays or Thursdays. On the weekend each player is expected to be at the ground at least one hour before the game in order to warm up and do light training before the game.

Muster Day

In order to place you into a suitable team, all players who are either new to Five Dock Falcons, or did not play in the most recent season, must attend the “Muster Day”.

If you cannot attend either of these days please contact the Seniors Registrar so an alternative time can be arranged.

On this day you will need to wear suitable shoes and sports gear and bring your glove if you have one. If you haven’t bought a glove yet we can lend you one for the day and then give you advice about sizes and the best place to buy your gear.

No money is due until after the Muster, but no-one will be placed into a team until fees are paid in full.

Fees

The fee includes a club playing shirt, but you will need to purchase separately the cap, pants, belt, socks, and approved shoes.
