Earlier this year, the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) announced that the age group of their Under 19 Softball World Championships (male and female) would be aligned with Baseball, to feature a new Under 18 World Championship.
Following consultation and feedback received, Softball Australia will make the following changes to its National Championship age groups commencing in 2020:
- U19s will change to U18 National Championships
- U17s will change to U16 National Championships
- U15 Regionals will change to U14 Regional Championships
