About AIS Softball
The AIS and the Australian Softball Federation established the AIS Softball program in 1993. The non-residential program is administered from Melbourne and program staff direct their energies towards training programs that maximise the development and performance of the national women's team.
The program has national training centres in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia, with satellite programs in the Australian Capital Territory and South Australia.
Head Coach of the program is Kere Johanson, who represented New Zealand Black Sox in 4 World Championships (1988, 1992, 1996, 2000). Kere was also the Head Coach of the WA state team from 2002 and was WAIS Head Coach up until 2009.
The Australian Softball Federation coordinates a network of coaches including national training centre coaches and specialist coaches that help Kere and his team provide the highest level of expert contemporary coaching and training.
