Mom and son, representing their Province for Baseball and Softball.
Ethan Buckley (13 years) will be representing 15U Western Province, participating in the National Regional Baseball Tournament held at Mark's Park, Randburg, Johannesburg from the 7th to 11th of April 2017.
This will be Ethan's 6th cap for his Province. Ethan is an extremely dedicated, talented and knowledgeable Baseball Player. We see a very bright future for this young athlete.
Ethan's 1st position is Catcher, he hits and throws right. He has a mean swing and always does his job in thebatter's box.
Cathy will be representing Western Cape Softball Association in the annual NPC (National Provincial Championships) held in Tswsane (Pretoria) from the 21st to the 25th of March 2016.
Cathy was an elite player that represented her Province and Country for many years. Her highlight was playing in the World Softball Cup in Saskatoon, Canada, competing against the best in the world. Cathy recently changed to Coaching.
She coaches a School High School Team, a Club Team, Falcons, playing in the highest league in Cape Town and this will be her 3rd cap as a Provincial Assistant Coach.
With this prestigious achievement, comes a heafty price tag.
Baseball and Softball are still classified as "Minor" Sporting Codes in South Africa and all the expenses are for the players and coaches account.
The Buckley Family are extremely involved in all areas of Baseball and Softball,volunteering all their free time and putting back into the sport they love so dearly.
A donation, big or small, will go along way to assist these 2 dedicated and talented individuals lighten the financial load of representing the Province.
