Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone

Well, there is only one way to say it – the weather looks terrible for cricket. The Association is reviewing conditions this morning and will advise clubs status later today. Your Coaches and Team Managers will advise if cricket is cancelled. Please keep an eye out on your email.

Bunnings BBQ – Saturday 16 November
Our Bunnings BBQ date is next Saturday (16 November). We are looking for 3-4 families to do the 12.00pm-2.00pm shift and the 2.00pm – 4.00pm shift. If you can assist (even for just an hour) – please let me know.

Big Bash League Memberships
2 Game BBL Memberships (for either the Stars or Renegades that you you chose on registration) have arrived. I am in the process of passing them to your coaches, who will hand them out. Any issues at all, please let me know. Please note, Junior Blasters do not receive the Memberships, however I understand that BBL tickets and offers were in your Junior Blaster Kits.

Curry Night
The Nunawading Cricket Clubs ‘world famous’ Curry Night will be on Friday 22 November. This is always a great community night at Nunawading after matches, training and Junior Blasters.

The way it works is that we ask families to make a curry/rice/noodle dish and bring them along to the club for our Post Match gathering. All the curries and rice dishes are then available for everyone to try. If you cook/donate a curry, there is no charge. If not, we simply ask for $5 a plate. We also have sausage sizzle for those who may not be so keen on a spicy meal. If you can cook/donate a curry, please let me know. The night is a great success with your help.

We are still looking for some more offers of curries (I currently have five offers – and we normally have well in excess of 15-20)!!

E-Scoring Session
Many thanks to Glen (Max) Mackie for running the e-scoring session on Wednesday. It was great to see the 10-12 parents attend. This new way of scoring is easier than the traditional book, and as we are always wanting to ensure all families take their turn at scoring, it is important that we all try and learn the new system. Please, if it is not your turn to score, spend 15-30 minutes looking over the shoulder of the scorer, to familiarise yourself!!

I will be sending out more details on scoring shortly.

Team Photos
A reminder of the dates for Team Photos:

Friday 22 November – (Before matches and Junior Blasters at Mahoneys Reserve)

Under 14 4.35pm – 4.45pm

Fast 9s 4.00pm – 4.10pm
Under 12 4.10pm – 4.25pm (Both Teams)
Under 16s 4.35pm – 4.45pm

Nunawading Cicket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone – With the Melbourne Cup weekend ahead of us – there is no Junior cricket this weekend. For all Teams (excluding Junior Blasters) – your Coach/Team Manager will maintain contact with you in regards to training.

Curry Night
The Nunawading Cricket Clubs ‘world famous’ Curry Night will be on Friday 22 November. This is always a great community night at Nunawading after matches, training and Junior Blasters.

The way it works is that we ask families to make a curry/rice/noodle dish and bring them along to the club for our Post Match gathering. All the curries and rice dishes are then available for everyone to try. If you cook/donate a curry, there is no charge. If not, we simply ask for $5 a plate. We also have sausage sizzle for those who may not be so keen on a spicy meal. If you can cook/donate a curry, please let me know. The night is a great success with your help.

Team Photos
We will again be holding Team Photos this season. Details are as follows:

Friday 22 November – (Before matches and Junior Blasters at Mahoneys Reserve)
Under 14 4.35pm – 4.45pm
Under 18 4.45pm – 4.55pm
Junior Blasters 6.10pm – 6.20pm

Sunday 24 November – (at Mahoneys Reserve)
Super 7s 3.45pm – 4.00pm (Both Teams)
Fast 9s 4.00pm – 4.10pm
Under 12 4.10pm – 4.25pm (Both Teams)
Under 16s 4.35pm – 4.45pm

Whilst there is no compulsion to purchase photos, it is obviously great for the Club to have as many players in the photos – so please ensure you come along. I think you will all agree that previous years photos look great on the Club Room walls.

Many thanks to Jean-Paul Lefebure for once again organising this – who works with Jo Fairy from ‘Field of View’ – to make this possible.

Scoring Session
As mentioned previously – this season, the Association has changed the scoring system. The Home team is now required to score OnLine – with the away team to score via the traditional scorebook.

As is the case at Nunawading – we look for all families to be involved – and as such, next Wednesday night at 6.00pm, we are running an awareness session on scoring. This is at the same time that our Fast 9s and U12s train. Please come into our club rooms to see how it is done and what is involved. In all seriousness, if you use the many apps that a smart phone has – this is just as straight forward.

In the interim – if you want to familiarise yourself with the scoring system – please download the ‘MyCricket Live Scoring’ where you can score via a demo match.

Bunnings BBQ – Saturday 16 November
Our Bunnings BBQ date is getting closer – however we are in DESPERATE NEED of volunteers. Please, as one of our Junior Families, can you please put your name down on the roster if you are free!!

Finally – whilst I have not studied the field – I reckon Cross Counter will go Back to Back in the Cup on Tuesday!!!

Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone – this weeks update is a bit shorter – but still some important news.

Friday Night
Tomorrow night after matches, training and Junior Blasters – we will be having a BBQ, with Super Burgers, Vegie Burgers and sausages. ‘Piccolino Player of the week’ vouchers will also be handed out during match results.

Weather
Friday weather looks a bit up/down. As mentioned previously, the expectation is that all players attend matches – UNLESS PREVIOUSLY ADVISED. Quite often, the Association will not cancel matches – and it will be left up to the two teams present at the game – to determine if it is safe to play – based on local conditions.

Also – if you are unable to attend the whole match/training – please be mindful that matches/training can be called off before the designated finish time. I ask that all families be mindful of this – in terms of collecting your children.

Big Bash League Memberships
Melbourne Stars or Melbourne Renegades – 2 Game Memberships, have now been ordered for all Juniors (excluding Junior Blasters). You may already have received an email from your chosen team. The actual Membership packs will be centrally delivered in 2-3 weeks – and will then be distributed.

Junior Blasters I understand should have also received some tickets in their kits. On the subject of kits, if there are any issues with delivery, please let myself, or Daniel/Claire know.

Bunnings BBQ
We are still looking for families to help out on our Bunnings BBQ at Vermont South on Saturday 16 November. Please put your name down on the roster in the club rooms.

Curry Night
The Nunawading Cricket Clubs ‘world famous’ Curry Night will be on Friday 22 November. This is always a great community night at Nunawading after matches, training and Junior Blasters.

The way it works is that we ask families to make a curry/rice/noodle dish and bring them along to the club for our Post Match gathering. All the curries and rice dishes are then available for everyone to try. If you cook/donate a curry, there is no charge. If not, we simply ask for $5 a plate.

Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone – it was great to have everyone playing cricket last weekend and coming together as a Community. This week, there are numerous important updates below – please read on….. (sorry – I know there is a bit)

Child Safety at Nunawading Cricket Club
Nunawading Cricket Club is committed to ensuring that everyone at Nunawading, including children and young people, participates in our sport free of abuse, harassment, bullying or any other form of inappropriate conduct. Australian Cricket’s ‘Looking After Our Kids’ policy framework, details cricket’s commitment to safeguarding children and young people, and provides other resources in the safeguarding of children and young people in our sport. Cricket Australia’s approach is also outlined via the following link:

https://www.cricketaustralia.com.au/about/safeguarding/-/media/86AEDE433E964042BE7AFB3ECEA3E2D5.ashx

Nunawading Cricket Club has two Child Safety Officers, namely:

· Luisa Mackie 0408 368968.

· Brad Gant 0402 267439.

Both Luisa and Brad are long standing members of the Nunawading Cricket Club Community, have three children each – and also are in professions which demand the highest level of of integrity and provide support to the broader community.

As part of our commitment to Child Safety – all of our coaches and team managers are currently going through a certification process and all have current Working-With-Children checks. The club committee and junior coaches will work and monitor diligently to ensure no Child Abuse, Bullying, Harassment, Grooming or neglect that relates to a Child or Young Person takes place in our club.

Our website contains further details at:

https://www.nunawadingcc.com.au/index.php?page=safeguarding-children

Season Launch – Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior program

Tomorrow is our season Launch. After matches, training and Junior Blasters – please come upstairs, where we will be having Piccolino Pizza and sausages. Grab a cold drink – and hear not only how our Juniors performed, but some additional special presentations.

Piccolinos have been great supporters of Nunawading for a number of years. They not only sponsor us, but also provide vouchers for our Piccolinos ‘Player of the Week’. If you have not tried Piccolinos before – pop in and say hi to John, Simon and the team. Both the restaurant and the take away are fantastic. Great food, great service. Try them out at 55 Blackburn Rd Mt Waverley.

We will also be having a raffle at our season launch. We only do a raffle a few nights of the year. There is no compulsion to purchase tickets – however feel free to join in the fun!!

U12 Nuna Derby
Before the Season Launch commences – Nuna will have our two U12 teams playing against each other on Bob Saker oval. This is a great opportunity for our 26 juniors in U12, to come together on our main oval. These boys and girls train together – and we hope that in 5-10 years time, these players are enjoying their cricket, are all still great friends and are playing senior cricket together at Nuna. Please pop over tomorrow night – and have a look at how great it is to have the future of Nunawading playing. I am sure Nuna will be the winner – on and off field!!

Womens Big Bash League – and Nunawading Cricket Club
This Sunday 20 October, a number of our girl Junior Blasters are being presented with a fantastic opportunity. During the WBBL Innings Break of the Stars V Hurricanes match, our girls will receive a hat from the fielding side, and given the chance to meet some amazing Stars and Hurricanes Players. If you are at CitiPower Centre, Junction Oval – the match starts at 2.00pm.

Special thanks to our Junior Blasters Coordinator Daniel(Smudge) Smith – who has organised this.

Bunnings BBQ
As previously mentioned, on 16 November, we are running the Bunnings BBQ at Vermont South. This is a great way to fundraise from the general public. There is now a roster on the notice board in our Club Rooms (just to the left as you walk in the rooms). Please put your name down for a two hour shift. It is always great fun doing the BBQ. We would also be very keen for our U16/U18 juniors to assist.

Apparel
Our apparel order placed after Registration Day has arrived. Our Apparel Managers (Paddy and Max) will be able to assist you AFTER matches on Friday night. We still have another order outstanding – so if you have only ordered apparel in the last few weeks – that may still be a few weeks away.

Mount Pleasant Road Primary School – Pleasant Bazaar
One of our local schools – Mt Pleasant Road Primary School and Kindergarden – is having their ‘Pleasant Bazaar’ on Saturday 23 November. Details are attached. There will be some great activities, food and community involvement. Please pop in on the day – and support our local schools. This is another example of how Nuna looks to work with other local community organisations.

Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone – Cricket starts tomorrow evening!! How great is that!!!!!!! There are a number of important messages below – so please read on!!!!!!!

Tomorrow (Friday 11 October) Night
After matches, training and Junior Blasters are finished tomorrow – please come upstairs to our club rooms. We will be having Super Burgers, sausages and Vegie Burgers.There will also be a chance to buy a cold drink – and most importantly come together and hear how our children went. Special thanks in advance to our U16 Families who will be cooking and serving this week for us.

Child Safety

  • Next week – I will talk more about Nunawading Cricket Club’s Commitment to Child Safety. There are a number of enhancements we have undertaken, to further advance our commitment to Child Safety.
  • As part of our Commitment – the Club expects that as a parent, you will be with your child during matches/training – or ensure that another parent is responsible for your child. This not only helps our volunteer coaches – it ensures your child can share his time and experience at the club with those adults he/she knows. In the event of any injury, if parents are not present, outside of a minor incident (band aid/ice) – our coaches are instructed to call an ambulance if you as a parent are not present. We will obviously also then contact you.
  • There have been a number of reviews conducted on cricket helmets in recent times. The Box Hill District Cricket Association, has advised that Cricket Victoria highly recommends that all Juniors have a helmet that conforms to the British Standard, with fixed grill and additional protection. Whilst this is not yet mandatory, and insurance will cover all helmets for the season ahead, Nunawading Cricket Club encourages any new purchases of helmets to have the relevant British Standard code (BS7928:2013). T

Teams
If you have not been advised by your Coach/Team Manager where you are playing – or are not sure, please let me know.

Wet (or hot) weather
You are expected to attend training/matches unless you are advised not to. Usually, if there is only some rain, the Association will not call off games – and both teams are expected to attend the ground – where the two Coaches will assess the situation. In these situations, if there is play – we require all players present.

Apparel
Orders placed at Registration Day should be here by next week. As soon as they arrive – we will let parents know. For those who ordered after that – we work on a First In First Out basis. We have placed an additional order that may take a number of weeks to arrive. Medium sized shirts are definitely subject to wait – especially for newly placed orders.


Season Launch

Whilst we would love to see everyone in our club rooms tomorrow night – Friday 18 October is our season Launch. Please ensure you pop upstairs next week, to hear about the season ahead and have some special presentations.

MyCricket
All match fixtures are now in MyCricket. If you have not already – please download the app – select Nunawading – and your teams matches for the season ahead are all there. Any issue with this – please let me know.

BBL Memberships
All juniors at Nuna will receive a 2 Game Big Bash League Membership. Can I please ask all registered players to advise me if they are a Stars or Renegades supporter. I know you did this via registration – however I just want to double check for accuracy.

Junior Blasters I understand will also receive a great BBL surprise in your kits……..

I hope everyone has a great season ahead.

Thanks
