Juniors News

Junior membership

Our registration process for Juniors Membership is now complete and our under 6 to under 12 groups are now full for 2015. We always welcome new under 14 and 15 players, please email Sam Krafft if you are interested.

To avoid disappointment, please do not bring children along to training sessions if they are not registered as members of the club. Due to constraints of space and minimum coaching ratios, we will not be able to accommodate them. We are happy to provide information about other local cricket clubs who still are still accepting applications from new juniors players – just get in touch.
