Coaching or Co Coaching and Parental Team Support
NOTE: We almost have two teams so we need 1 or 2 parents to put their hands up to coach or co-coach if a second team is reached.
Coach 1 - Martin Drum.
All parents are encouraged to ask what they can do to help. Just ask the coaches - "Is there anything I can do to help".
Everyone is busy with lots of commitments and so everyone needs to priorities helping out to make a better community and cricket experience for your kids.
If you are able to take on a shared coaching role to help organise training sessions and game days let the current coaches know. Just offer and ask "Anything you need a hand with?"
That's all we ask.
Player Information for Start of Season
WHAT TO WEAR
For match days, the boys will need to wear white shirts and white long trousers, and preferably mostly white shoes, and the Association has a no hat/ no play policy, so a hat is also required. So the kids play as a team, we recommend that the club’s shirt and hats are worn and these can be purchased online at https://www.coolbinia.cricket/.
It would be appreciated if orders can be completed as soon as possible, as we have been advised that the supplier has requested orders be submitted early next week to ensure items are ready for the start of the season. Plain white trousers can be bought at numerous outlets including Kmart, Rebel and Jim Kidds etc.
Whist the club provides some kit for each team, that includes all the equipment required to play on game day, the boys are encouraged to bring and use their own gear, but please ensure they have their name on each item. We also highly recommend that each player buys their own “box” (official term- abdominal guard).
TEAMS AND NUMBERS we will need a couple of more volunteers to help coach/manage the kids, especially for match days, so can you please let Shane or I know if you can assist with this, it would be greatly appreciated.
