Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone – a few important things this week, as we can now say the season has begun!!
Preseason Training

It was great to see Preseason training underway on Sunday. Whilst numbers were low (and the weather not great), our newly surfaced Bob Saker Oval was totally dry!! I am expecting more numbers as the weeks continue, so please come along this Sunday. So that you can mark training in your calendars, training dates look like this:

U10, U12, U14 and Girls Teams U16 and U18 (with seniors)
Sunday 28 August 9.00am – 10.15am Sunday 28 August 10.00am – 11.15am
Sunday 4 September ** 9.00am – 10.15am Sunday 4 September ** 10.00am – 11.15am
Sunday 11 September 9.00am – 10.15am Sunday 11 September 10.00am – 11.15am

Training will then revert to mid week after after Sunday 11 September. Wednesday night training will commence on 14 September for U10, U12, U14 and Girls Teams. Training dates for U16 and U18 to be confirmed.

** Sunday 4 September is Fathers Day. Confirmation of training proceeding on this Day is still to be provided.

Apparel Form
Please find attached the Apparel form. Please note, the one I provided last week did not have the email address of our Apparel Manager Derek Clark on it. Apologies for this oversight. If you want apparel, please get your requests in ASAP. If you require stock for the start of the season, please ensure you have it to Derek by this Friday.

Registration Day
As mentioned previously, our Registration Day is on Saturday 3 September 9.00am – 11.00am at Mahoneys Reserve. Please promote this to friends and families, as we are looking for some new players to join Nunawading (Boys and Girls). Additionally, if you cannot make Registration Day, can you please complete you Registration Forms ASAP. It is imperative the club knows which players are returning. Registration form and promotional flyer attached.

T20 Blast
We are also looking to run a T20Blast team this season. T20 Blast is aimed at children aged 7-9 who may be looking for more than Milo in2Cricket, however are hesitant about U10. If your child is interested in playing this, please let me know.

Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Update (Apparel Order and New Sponsor)

Hi everyone

Apparel Order
Please find attached the Junior Apparel Order Form for season 2016/2017. Please note changes from last year include:
·        All juniors will be playing in the same design shirt this season. This will be the same shirt which our seniors and older juniors have worn in recent years.
·        If you still have last year’s apparel which fits, there is no need to change it, however you are welcome to order new stock.
·        The Club has discontinued the ‘Pirates’ Brand. Again, if you still wish to wear an existing Pirates shirt or cap which fits, that is fine for this season. The Pirates brand has been very successful in building our junior club, however with more older Junior Teams – and also given the Pirates brand was generally only used for U10 and U12, we as a Junior Club will all be known as Nunawading CC (or ‘Nuna’).
·        Long sleeve playing shirt is now available.
If you wish to order apparel in time for the start of the season, can you please get your orders in by Friday 26 August (to at the absolute latest. The club will have some excess stock available, however we do not want to order more stock than is required.
Piccolino Pizza
The Club is happy to announce that we have a new sponsor, namely Piccolino Pizza!! In the coming weeks I will share that benefits that all Junior families will receive from Piccolino. Piccolino Pizza is closely located at 53 Blackburn Rd Mt Waverley (near the corner of Blackburn Rd and Highbury Rd). They make great pizza and pasta. Next time you are looking for a take away pizza, or alternatively to eat in at a lovely restaurant, please support our sponsor. Mention you are from Nunawading CC, and enjoy the great food, service and atmosphere at Piccolino.
Pre-Season Training
I will be advising details of Pre Season training in the next 48 hours – stay tuned

Nunawading Cricket Club – July Junior Update

Hi everyone
As cricket season gets a little closer, here is just a quick update:

Bunnings Sausage Sizzle – Nunawading Cricket ClubSaturday 23 July
Tomorrow, Nunawading Cricket Club are running the sausage sizzle at the Nunawading Bunnings (250 Whitehorse Rd, Nunawading) from 8am until 5pm. I did not seek volunteers from our Junior families on this occasion, as our seniors have taken the lead (however this still includes a number of Junior Families). Thank you to Jean-Paul Lefebure, Daniel Smith, Glenn Mackie, Jayden West, Patrick West, Malcolm West, Scott O’Neill, Andrew Lord, Tim Day Lachlan Day, Patrick Mitchell & Buddy Mendis, who have given up their time this Saturday to make this happen. Special thanks to Greg Clark, who has not only given up his whole Saturday, but has also managed the set up process. It would be great to see as many junior families there as possible to support the club. Please come along, say hi and buy a couple of sausages. Every little bit helps, as this is a great fundraiser for the club. We look forward to seeing you all there this Saturday.

Junior Handbook 2016/2017
As mentioned last month, planning is well underway for a great season ahead. We expect to have the Junior Handbook sent out next week, which will have all the information for the season ahead. If you know of any friends or relatives who are looking for a game of cricket, please have them contact me! We are always looking to welcome new families and players (boys and girls) to our great club. This season we will have an increased focus on training for ALL of our teams. This will see specialised coaching available. These details are being finalised, however we are hoping your children will benefit from an even more personalised training session.

Once again, if you are in a position to help out further, in any way at the club (or even if you would like to, however are not sure how), please let me know!!

Pre-Season Training
We will be looking to run Sunday morning training, likely to commence 21 August (weather permitting). Stay tuned for more details on training dates and times. If your child played Milo last season, however you think they may be ready for U10 cricket this season (even if they are only aged 7 or 8), please feel free to contact me to discuss. Our pre-season is a great opportunity to young children adjusted to U10 cricket.

Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update (Final one for season 2016/2017)

Hi everyone

This will be my last update for the season, however it won’t be long until you will be hearing from me again, as the next season is not far away. (Planning for next season is already underway)!! At this stage, I plan on being in contact again in June/July, with all the information about season 2016/2017. As you know, we welcome all players to the club, so please encourage all friends to come down to Nunawading next season. Also, if you are looking to increase your involvement and help out in a more formal way please let me know!! We are always looking for any form of assistance.

Junior Presentation Night
Last Friday was a great night. It was fantastic to see so many people there, and so many smiles on Children’s faces. It really was a great way to celebrate the ‘year that was’. Thanks also to everyone who supported the club and Relay for Life raffles. Winner of the Renegades bat was Jim Petrou, winner of the Renegades shirt was Magda Jackson, winner of the 10KG block of chocolate (supporting Relay For life) was Jack Shannon. Also, whilst we don’t usually focus on individual award winners, special congratulations to Ethan Walker and Lachlan Jessup – joint winners of the Dave Cowell Award for outstanding services (on and off the field) to the Junior Club.

Senior Finals
All three Nunawading Senior Teams which played in Grand Finals on the weekend, were all successful in defending their totals and winning their Grand Finals. This is an outstanding result for Nunawading – as it means out 1sts, 2nds and 3rds are all premiers!! Our Firsts will now return to the highest grade next season (and have won three premierships in the last three seasons).

Association Junior Presentation Night
Monday night saw the Association Presentation Night. Our U16A boys were presented with their premiership flag. Nunawading also had the following individual winners:

Lachlan Jessup – U14A Batting winner for the Association
Ethan Walker – U16 Player of the round for February
Vaishnavi Munukalta – Batting award for the U12 Girls Association Representative team
Rituja Talekar – Coaches award for the U12 Girls Association Representative team

That is it for now – any queries in the off season ,please feel free to contact me.
