Callum's opportunity for Japan 2016
My name is Callum Fulton. I am 11 years old and currently a Year 6 student at Panania Public School.
I have been playing Softball for St Lukes Softball Club since I was 7 years old. As well as playing for St Lukes, I have been selected to play in the U11 and U13 Georges River Softball Association Representative Teams, playing against other NSW Representative Teams for the State Cup.
Recently I was invited by Softball NSW to trial, at Blacktown International Sportspark, for an U13s Selective NSW Team to travel to Osaka, Japan for a 10 day experience of a lifetime in August. This opportunity includes a three-day Tournament and sightseeing at some of Japan's most well-known attractions.
This week I received a letter congratulating me on being selected in the team. I feel very lucky and excited to be given this opportunity and look forward to meeting the other team members.
All players are required to pay $4,000.00 and as my family does not want me to travel without a family member, my Dad will be travelling with me. He will also have to pay $4,000.00.
My family and I believe that this is an opportunity that may never happen again and I would really like to pursue my chance of not only representing my family and friends and my association but also to feel proud to represent my country.
If anybody or any association could help me reach my travel target I would be so appreciative.
