The Great Britain Womens Fastpitch National Team is entering the final stages of an intensive two-year programme aimed at qualifying for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, with a realistic chance of achieving this goal. To help us still further, we are looking for high-level players who might be eligible to play for Great Britain through having a British family heritage.
To be eligible for a British passport, a player must have been born in Great Britain or have a British parent – either mother or father, as long as the parents were legally married. Having a British grandparent will not do. In terms of British heritage, players or parents who come from England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland (but not the Republic of Ireland) are all potentially eligible.
We are happy to hear about quality players with British eligibility who play any position -- but we are particularly keen to recruit pitchers.
If you are a high-level player who may be eligible for a British passport or who has one already, or if you know a player in this position in a programme you are involved with, please get in touch with us at your earliest opportunity.
