Grading / Muster
Five Dock Falcons Baseball Club has teams in two different competitions. Boys and girls, men and women all play in mixed teams at both the Junior and Senior levels.
Juniors (Under 7 – Under 16) play in the Ryde Hawks Baseball League.
Seniors play in the Pacific Coast Baseball League.
A schedule of training times will be posted to the web site when teams have been settled after Registration and Musters.Training can be on any day but as a guide, last season most training was done on Wednesday evening. As we don’t have lights at Timbrell Park we have time restraints until the beginning of Daylight Saving at which time the schedule may change.
Training in summer is from 6.00pm – 8.00pm on Thursday evenings during daylight savings.

All players both girls and boys are required to wear a protector, box or cup at training and games.
No cup, no play.
If your local chemist shop doesn’t stock them you may have to visit a sports store to find them.
All players should wear sunblock during games, even the early morning games.
If you forget to bring sunblock to the ground there is a supply available at the canteen.
Please ensure your child brings a bottle of water to training and games.
If you are playing at home your coach or manager will be notified by our Ground Manager if Timbrell Park is closed.
If you are playing away your coach or manager should be notified by the opposition Club as to whether their ground is open.
IF IN DOUBT – TURN UP FOR THE GAME READY TO PLAY. DON’T RISK A FORFEIT.
- The Games
For home games only, teams are required to dress the diamond before the game and pack away after the game. All team members are required to assist their coach/manager.
- The Canteen
The Canteen is our major source of fund raising. The funds raised have and will continue to pay for the equipment used by the children and, very importantly, the trophies at the end of the season.
Remember to support the canteen as a customer on match days.
Presentation Day is usually scheduled for a Sunday afternoon as soon as possible after the completion of the season.
All Junior players receive a Participation Award at Presentation Day.
It is also Falcons policy to make several special awards to players in each team. These are decided by the coach and manager toward the end of the season.
Players who have played with the Falcons for 5 or 10 consecutive years also receive an award
