With a long hot summer just around the corner…….. we are pleased to let you know the details for our Junior Registration for the 2019 cricket season.
We aim to ensure that every junior member develops a life long love of the game of cricket and has every opportunity to realise their potential with the pathway we have created in a fun and safe environment.
The membership fee covers the cost of the Friday night training sessions (it works out at less than £5 per session).
Payment method: cash is preferred but if this is not possible then cheques made payable to "Dorridge Cricket Club" are the Club's second preference and card payments the third.
These will remain, as before, on Friday evenings. Last year we had approximately 240 children attending over the 3 sessions. This year we have decided to retain the 3 separate sessions for Friday night training meaning that we can:
Provide a higher coach to children ratio recognising that some children develop better in smaller groups
Alleviate (some) pressure on car parking facilities.
The coaching sessions will commence on 19 April 2019 and end on 13 September 2019.
We are unable to supply a club training shirt for registrations received after 16thMarch but these are available for you to purchase in a range of sizes, directly from JS Sports https://jscricket.net/products/dorridge-cc-blade-training-tee
Please put these provisional dates in your diaries now. Further details will be provided near the time.
Complete Cricket Coaching will continue to be our Lead Coaching Partner and as in previous years, will be assisted by junior team managers/club volunteers.
This season we will be looking to enter a total of 23 teams in the Warwickshire Youth Cricket League and an additional 2 in the Cotswold League (Sunday morning) for the following age groups (ages are calculated on the age of the child at the start of this academic year).
4 x 8 a side pairs teams including 1 mixed boys/girls team)
3 x 8 a side pairs teams
3 x 8 a side pairs teams and 1 x 11 a side (normal rules) team
2 x 8 a side pairs teams and 2 x 11 a side (normal rules) team
1 x 8 a side pairs team, 3 x 11 a side normal rules teams
1 x girls 8 a side pairs team (in the Warwickshire girls league)
1 x 11 a side (normal rules) teams
2 x 11 a side (normal rules) team
Cotswold Hills League (Sunday mornings)
2 x under 13's 8 a side pairs teams.
It is a great testament to our success as a Club and to your continued support that we are able to enter this number of teams and provide such a large number of our junior members with competitive cricket.
We need your help please
As you are aware, the teams are managed and run by volunteer parents so please let your child's team managers know if you are able to assist them from time to time with coaching, administration/ parental liaison or match scoring. Please do support your team manager if they are unavailable for any of the matches. The team managers commit a lot of time and energy to ensuring the children have the best experience of cricket that they can, so please make every effort to help.
We are looking forward to building on the successful season we had in 2018 and we look forward to maintaining and improving these great achievements during the 2019 season.
