Junior Section Newsletter - April 2013


I hope you are all well and eager for the start of the new cricket season. Hopefully 2013 at Attenborough will be a great year for the club and also see some better weather than in 2012.
Registration Evening
Registration evening will be on Friday 26th April commencing at 6.30pm at the Strand. A registration form is attached. Our Child Safeguarding Policy and a
document showing the structure of the Youth Cricket coaching structure are also attached.
The club will be firing up the BBQ for the first time on the night. We hope we can count on your support and good weather!
The junior membership fee for 2013 will remain as last year at £30.
Parents who receive income support, income-based jobseekers allowance, working tax credit (but not child tax credit) or disabled persons tax credit may contact Barrie Humphriss or Carl Knight in confidence to discuss financial assistance.
Spring / Summer Outdoor Training
Outdoor sessions will be held at The Strand from Friday 3rd May through to the final session on Friday 19th July for all age groups. Sessions are from 6.30pm until 8.00pm.
In the event of adverse weather, we will endeavour to contact all parents / carers via text or email by 5.30pm. Please check your email before setting off.
The rebuilding of the clubhouse at the Strand means that facilities will be very limited, at least for the early part of the season. Toilet facilities will certainly be available from the start.

Under 15s (Year 9 & 10)
Callum Taylor
Under 13s (Year 8)

As last year two Kwik cricket teams will be entered into the Sunday morning league with venues and dates posted on the website as soon as they are released. Dates are Sunday mornings 10.00 until 12.00 on June 2nd, June 9th, June 16th, June 23rd and June 30th.
Presentation Evening
Our presentation evening will be held on Friday 26th July at The Strand.
I hope this will be a great opportunity to get together and reflect on a successful season. Further details to follow.
And finally
Attenborough Youth Section pride themselves on their junior members and the way they behave, both at training and during matches against other clubs. We strongly encourage our junior members to wear cricket clothing whilst training and representing Attenborough CC and we hope parents will support us on this. It must also be noted that youth players must be in possession of a protective guard (box) whilst playing hardball in both the nets and in matches.
