Our Season starts with the Junior open day April 16th “the Bigger Bash” all juniors come along and kick off the season with a fun day of softball cricket, remember if you have a friend who wants to get a flavour of the club and Cricket they will be more than welcome.
Mums Dad’s etc. this is your chance to come along have a coffee or tea (possibly a cake!) meet the other parents and carers and watch the boys and girls having a little fun. More importantly this is YOUR opportunity to talk to myself , the Coaches and the Club Secretary and find out what we have planned for the season. I am looking forward to seeing lots of you there.
Outdoor training will start Friday 22nd – 5:30 until 6:30 for softball and 6:30 until 8:30 for the hardballers , the softball players are welcome to stay on to get a feel for hardball cricket.
I feel this is going to be an important year for the juniors, we are going to have our most comprehensive coaching set-up for some time, we will have level 3 and level 2 coaching staff plus a wicket keeping coach and our new professional Coach Craig Thyssen is tasked with planning and delivering a comprehensive coaching plan for the juniors. Already this year we have new players coming into the hardball section and the success of the “Active Schools ” programme run by Jack (Hilton) looks like bringing in a good number of boys and girls to the Kwik Cricket squads. This is the foundation for the future and we will be looking for some of these boys and girls to work their way up to the hardball squads.
We also have 3 of our under 15 squad who made past some stiff competition to get into the Regional Winter Skills training squad and they will soon be going into the full regional trials.
hope to see you all soon
