More than 100 representative teams of boys and girls from 30 metropolitan and country clubs played six one-hour games in various age groups.

The Canning Cougars entered two teams, an under-11s and under-9s team.

It was the first time Canning had entered an under-9s team and the dedicated group of 11 girls and boys trained weekly, in addition to their club commitments, and played two lead-up carnivals in their preparation.

Over the three days, Canning was victorious in all six of its games and had the highest runs scored of any team across all ages and divisions in the entire competition.

Coach Steve Wright said he was thrilled to see the young squad work hard to get the cup.

“Our success as a team has come about through training hard, supporting each other on the diamond and great sportsmanship,” he said.

Tee-Ball, as well as being a lot of fun, provides an opportunity for rapid improvement in ball skills, hand-eye co-ordination and general confidence. For information about tee-ball or joining Canning, visit www.cctbc.com.au .
