Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone – Apologies for the length of the email this week, however as we are less than a month away from the start of the season, there is a lot of information to share.
Registration Day


Last Saturday was the clubs Junior Registration Day. It was a great success, with more than 30 families attending to register and ordering apparel. We are also fortunate to have at least ten new families join the club, playing across most age groups. A special welcome to all new families. If at any stage you have any queries, please let me know. Any existing families who have not yet completed a Registration Form for this season, will need to do so ASAP. It is imperative that we know who is playing this season, so that we can accurately enter all our teams. I attach a Registration Form, and an Apparel Order Form again. Special thanks to Jean-Paul, Glen, Caz and Derek for helping on the day.

Pre-Season Training


With Father’s Day behind us (I hope all Dads had a great day), training resumes this Sunday (11 Sept) as follows:

· U10, U12, U14, Girls Teams (9.00am – 10.15am). Training will then move to Wednesday night (14 Sept) – timings to be confirmed, but likely start around 5.00pm, and finish by 6.15pm as Daylight Savings has not yet started.
· U16 and U18 (10.00am – 11.15am). Training to remain on a Sunday until further notice. It would be great to see as many boys at training as possible.

Under 10


A quick note again about U10. Thanks to everyone who has responded to my email earlier in the week. As mentioned, we are all very disappointed, however we must move on. The responses to date indicate we will definitely have a Wednesday night team – probably two. If you have not yet provided your response to me, please do so ASAP. By the end of next week, I need to confirm with the Association which days we are entering teams, and obviously advise all families. As mentioned, the club believes Wednesday night is the best option, however if we have enough boys and girls wanting to play on a Saturday or Sunday, we will make that happen!!

#beinvolved example of the week


As you all know, our moto this season is #beinvolved. Each week I hope to be able to provide an example of #beinvolved. This week, I would like to highlight Nicole MacPhie. As most would know, the Club has a very close relationship with our local Primary School Burwood Heights Primary School. This Friday, the school is participating in school sports, with cricket being one sport the children play. The school approached me and asked whether we had any coaches who may be able to assist on the day. After speaking with a few of our coaches and Team Managers from last season, Nicole put up her hand to help the children and the school. Massive thanks Nicole, who does not have any of her children playing cricket at Burwood Heights.

AFL Grand Final Day


Attached is the invitation to the Family Friendly Event at Nunawading CC on AFL Grand Final Day. Please come along and watch hopefully a great game of footy on the big screens, whilst sitting with friends, and having a drink and bite to eat.

Donation of old equipment


If you do have any old cricket equipment that your son or daughter has grown out of, the club can always use them and add them to our kits. We have been through the kits from last season (thanks to Blewey, Scott Millar and Smudge on Saturday) and thrown out some old equipment. Whilst we are buying some new equipment in the coming weeks, any second hand pads, bats, gloves in good condition, will be welcome.

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 apparel@nunawadingcc.com.au) 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.

Volunteers
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.
