Training, Dates & Playing Formats
Starts Friday 27th April
A great introduction into cricket aimed at 5 to 8 year olds. Plastic bats & soft balls are used and the emphasis is on fun & enjoyment. This program runs for at least 10 weeks with a break during the July school holidays. It is conducted on Friday afternoons from 5.30 to 6.30 with sausages and cool drinks available to purchase. What better way to end the week than at Nightcliff oval on a balmy dry season night for children and parents?!

The teams will be announced after our training starts at Nightcliff oval in mid-March.
We are looking to appoint qualified coaches to plan and run the training sessions during the week.
The club will pay for interested parents to achieve Cricket Australia Level 1 coaching accreditation.
We are also looking for parents to help organise the kids on training days.
Thank you to all our fantastic parents inside our
club who support all of our kids. We have many coaches, managers & parent helpers returning for 2017. If you can help in any way, however big or small, please let us know.
We quite often have different fundraising events which help keep our fees low. This could be selling sausages or drinks, quiz nights, mystery bus tours, wine and cheese nights, golf days and numerous other things. Please let us know if you are interested in helping or getting involved by indicating on the form or speaking to our committee. Many hands make light work and we have lots of fun!!
