YOUTH SECTION - SUMMER SEASON 2019
We hope you are all well and eager for the start of summer training. The winter training has gone well with a good attendance and a great deal of enthusiasm shown which hopefully will set us up for a successful season.
Registration evening will be on Friday 26th April commencing at 6.30pm at the Strand. A registration form can be found here but it will help us enormously if you could register using the online Google form available online here is the link, and pay via PayPal on the Payments link on the home page of the Attenborough CC website www.attenborough-cc.org. Kwik equipment will be out on the field but responsibility for safety on that night will be purely parental.
Our Youth Section Guidelines Safe Hands Policy and Club Codes of Conduct can be seen here.
The junior membership fee for 2019 is £50 (which is the same as last couple of years) to cover the 16 weeks of training. We continue to offer a discount for any siblings so a 2nd child's junior membership is £35 and £25 for any further children registered e.g. if you register two players then the total fee is £85. There is no extra charge for junior matches in any age group. These options are all available on the website under the 'payments' link, the 3 options being (Junior Playing, Two Juniors & Three Juniors).
Parents who receive income support, income-based jobseekers allowance, working tax credit (but not child tax credit) or disabled persons tax credit may contact Carl Knight in confidence to discuss financial assistance.

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 white 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 wear a protective guard (box) whilst playing hardball in both the nets and in matches. We do have spares if anyone ever forgets their own.
Please feel free to forward this message to family and friends as new players are always welcome.
