Gordon Juniors Goes Pink for McGrath Foundation

Gordon Juniors Goes Pink for McGrath Foundation

Donate Online Now or Feb 21 and 22 Games   

Gordon Junior Cricket Club is going into bat for the McGrath Foundation again this season to support its fantastic work with breast cancer. 

All our players and families are encouraged to go pink at their games on February 21 and 22 to raise money for national Pink Stumps Day. 
But you don't have to wait. You can give right now by going to the Gordon Juniors donation page at:  http://pinkstumpsday2015.gofundraise.com.au/page/gordonjuniors2015

Last year, our families donated $1,676.50 for Pink Stumps Day. The season before we raised $948.15. 

The money raised by Gordon Juniors - and all cricket clubs nationally - helps to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia and increase breast awareness in young Australian women.

Every dollar you donate will make a difference to the lives of Australian families experiencing breast cancer.
The McGrath Foundation wants every family experiencing breast cancer has access to a breast care nurse, no matter where they live or their financial situation. It's estimated that 150 McGrath Breast Care Nurses are needed to achieve this, only then will every family experiencing breast cancer have access to this optimal care and support.

Success Story
Gordon Juniors has grown dramatically over the past few years. The club expects to have 27 teams this season – that’s double the number from three seasons ago.
Why is this? The answer lies, in part, in the club’s philosophy of a fair go and equal participation for all players. The club promotes enjoyment ahead of victory. We welcome boys and girls of all abilities and we make sure they have fun while improving their skills during the season. We also run free extra skills sessions every Monday for all players.
Club caps, hats and shirts are also be purchased as part of the registration. Each player must wear a Gordon Juniors cricket shirt $35 and either a club cap or hat $20. You can order shirts, caps and hats by clicking on the Junior Payment Registration Form or by clicking on the ONLINE SHOP link at the top of the HOME page.
NB: Once you've made your purchase you must co-ordinate collection with your manager.

in2Cricket's Summer of Fun

in2Cricket's Summer of Fun

Our Young Cricketers in Action  

Our wonderful in2Cricketers are enjoying another fantastic summer of fun in 2014/15. The in2Cricket season restarts on Saturday - on February 28.

When we come back we want to see even more children playing. So encourage family and friends to come along on January 31. Please see below on how to register.

Last season almost 120 children enjoyed cricket with Gordon Juniors every Saturday morning. As well as having heaps of fun, the children were developing their cricket skills.

in2Cricket is ideal for children aged 5 to 8 although we do take children younger and older.

My thanks to all the boys and girl for making it a really great season of Milo in2Cricket at Beauchamp Park in Chatswood. I'd especially like to thank all the wonderful parents for getting involved on Saturdays. Being a part of your child's early cricket experience makes it more enjoyable.

Each week the players and parents turned up with big smiles for a morning of fun while learning the skills of cricket. These are skills vital to building the confidence of the boys and girls as they advance into Under 9s and beyond.

One season highlight was the successful Bring Your Sister Day where girls came along to experience the cricket fun.

Another highlight was Pink Stumps Day raising money for the McGrath Foundation.


Enrolment for 2014/15

You can enrol now for the 2014/15 Milo in2Cricket season with the Gordon District Junior Cricket Club to help develop your child's love of the great game. You can enrol by clicking on the Milo in2Cricket tab at the top of the Home page or by clicking HERE. Do not fill out a Junior Registration form if you want to register for Milo In2Cricket next season. In the meantime, please read the information below and I look forward to seeing you next Saturday.


FAQs and other important things

  • It is preferred if parents can join in the fun.


How will I place children into the groups/teams?

  • The groups are picked on age and I do my best to put friends with friends (as requested on registration form). This is not always possible due to group size and some friends not yet registered. There are no good, bad or whatever teams. They’re all fun teams.
  • In2cricket is not only about playing the game, but being able to expand our children's social skills. Please stay with the groups listed for the first week. PLEASE - do not email or call re changing teams.


How many teams?

  • This depends on numbers but going on last season we expect at least 12 teams. All will be named after current NSW cricketers. I will endeavour to keep the teams even but with late registrations the numbers vary from team to team. I have also kept the younger kids' teams smaller so they can have a bit more supervision.


See you next Saturday.
