The committee has decided that Club membership fees will not be increased this year.

The fees consist of:

  • Baseball Victoria and Baseball Australia fees, which go towards player insurance, administration costs at Baseball Victoria and Baseball Australia.
  • Cheltenham Rustlers Baseball Club fees, which cover the costs of running the club, costs of team entry into the Baseball Victoria competitions and maintenance and upkeep of grounds.
  • Social Levy of $20.00. Money collected via this levy will go towards social functions and fundraising for the Club.

If you have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to send your query to:

Playing part of the season

A player shall be entitled to play one game throughout the season free of cost, as per the DBAs allowance.

After registering and paying state and national fees, a player shall then be entitled to play one additional game throughout the season at no further cost.

Upon playing their third game a player is now required to pay $25 per game (including this third game).

If a player plays 10 or more games throughout the season (ie. 2 cost free games plus 8 further games) they are now required to pay full season fees.


The registration process for Cheltenham Rustlers is managed by Baseball Victoria through the Baseball Australia SportsTG system. This process is for all senior and junior players. Registration and payment is mandatory and players cannot play without being registered.

If it is a new registration, choose yourself (if you are the player) or someone else (if you are registering your child or another family member) and fill in the details.

    1. Select the category relevant for you (e.g. player, coach, volunteer etc) and go to the next page.
    2. The registration options specific to the player’s age will appear. Please note that Baseball Victoria and Baseball Australia fees are mandatory and are already pre-selected for you you did not play the previous Summer..
    3. If your club fees are showing, please select the options relevant to you and click “Next”.
