The next cricket season is fast approaching and I wanted to provide an update on the dates for the season and also the pre-season program.
Due to Covid-19 and its impact on the football codes whose season will extend later than usual, there will be some changes to the timing of the upcoming cricket season.
1st grade (and probably 2nd grade) are planned to start as per normal on the last weekend of September.. However, all other grades will have a delayed start to the season , most likely on last weekend of October. Details will be advised once the season dates are confirmed by the SCA.
Given the staggered start to the season we will structuring the pre-season program accordingly. The 1st and 2nd grade squad will commence net sessions on August 9 (Sunday mornings) , while the rest of the club will commence net sessions from start of September (most likely Saturday mornings). We are currently finalising exact dates, times and venues and will advise once they are locked in.
Like we have done in past years we are also running some pre-season fitness and fielding sessions. These will commence on July 22 and continue on Wednesdays evenings till end of August. Details are below.
Wednesday July 22, 29 & August 5 ,12,19,26
Time 6.30-8 pm
Venue – Artarmon Reserve, Burra Rd Artarmon.
These sessions are for the whole club, so everyone (including new players) is encouraged to come along. After the long Covid enforced isolation, it’s a great chance to get some exercise in and also catch up with your mates at the club.
I look forward to seeing everyone at pre-season.
