Players 16 to 18 years of age

 Cheltenham Rustlers has a proud history of providing a welcoming, fun and competitive junior development program with experienced coaches. Players have successfully progressed from the junior ranks through to the seniors and many that started as juniors with the Cheltenham Rustlers have had successful careers internationally.

The summer season usually commences in early October of each year with pre-season training starting several weeks before then. The season has a break during the Christmas period and usually finishes in March.

From the age of 14, junior players may also play in senior divisions.

The age categories are set by Baseball Victoria. To view what age group your child can play, please refer to Baseball Victoria’s Age Matrix
