Hi everyone – Even though the weather has been a bit all over the place in the last 24 hours, conditions forecast for Friday and the weekend, look great for cricket!!
On Friday night, we will have Super Burgers and sausages. I have asked our Junior Blaster families to lead the preparation and cooking of food – and also ask our Super 7 families to jump in and assist please. I will provide your Coaches/Team Managers with exact details of what is required. We again have a similar scenario to last week, with U12 and U18 teams having byes – and U14 and U16 playing away (very unusual scenarios). Even if you have never been involved with cooking the food on a Friday – please put you hand up to assist. Many hands make light work. With younger children, there is no expectation to have to stay back late – but we really need you to cook the food please for your own families – and the teams coming back home after playing away!! Many thanks in advance. I know a few did assist last week – so again, many thanks for that assistance – as it was a great night.
We will be having our U12s and Fast 9s (who are not generally at Mahoney’s on a Friday evening) – playing a match together on Bob Saker oval tomorrow. Collectively, these four age groups (Junior Blasters, 7s, 9s and U12s) are the future of Nunawading, so this really will be a great spectacle, to see our youngest Juniors taking over Mahoney’s Reserve.
On Sunday, our Girls team will be playing on Bob Saker oval, with our Fast 9s on oval 3. This is another great opportunity to come and watch Nuna in action. I encourage families to come and support our teams over the weekend.
Also, over the coming weeks – I will also advise when our 7s are playing at home on a Saturday/Sunday. I strongly encourage our older Junior Blaster families – who are considering taking the next step with their cricket – to bring their children to watch some of a Super 7 match – so that they can start obtaining an understanding of what to expect next season.
Your invitation to the Junior Presentation is attached. Friday 15 March will be a great night to celebrate the season. Over the coming weeks, I will advise exact times that each teams presentations will occur.
Our Trivia Night is also fast approaching (Saturday 2 March). Again, more information attached – however this is always a great night, that many junior families enjoy. Please don’t feel like you did need a big table. Even if there are just 1-3 of your ‘group’ interested, we make it work – and ensure a great night!
Coach the Coaches
Last Friday was a great success with our Coach the Coaches course. Many thanks to Club Coach Rob Ferdinands and Leigh Callander for running what was a great night. Feedback has been positive, and I know the group of 10+ had a great night.
