Milo in2Cricket

Milo in2Cricket

The Gordon Cricket Club is excited to announce that the Gordon Cricket Academy will continue to run the Club’s Milo in2Cricket program in season 2016/17. And registrations are now open.  

This development will give our youngest Club members (and parents) exposure to the Academy’s high performance coaching methodology in line with their expanding reach within all divisions of the Club.

The Milo in2Cricket program is a fun and exciting way for younger children to get their first taste of cricket. The program is open to boys and girls aged 5 to 8 years and is an important first step to introduce new players and parents to cricket and set them on the right pathway for a lifelong love of cricket. The main aims of the program are:

  • to provide a safe, non-competitive environment where young and new players can develop their cricket skills and have fun
  • to link young cricketers to the Gordon Cricket Club and prepare them for their pathway from in2Cricket to Gordon Juniors and beyond
  • to encourage more parents to become actively involved in the administration, coaching and support of the game

The 2016/17 program commences in October, so the time is right to register your child for the coming season. In fact registrations are already open. The link is at the bottom of the article.

The key details regarding the program are as follows:

  • Location: Beauchamp Oval - Nicholson St, Chatswood  -->  MAP
  • Dates: the program runs on Saturday mornings from 15th October to 17th December and recommences after the holidays from 4 February to 4th March 2017
  • Registration: Program registration is $140 per child; this covers the 15 session program and Milo in2Cricket participant pack containing a bag, cricket bat, hat, shirt, ball and other giveaways. This season in2Cricket program registrations/ payments will only be accepted through the Play Cricket website, with the link found at the bottom of the page.
  • Session duration: each session runs from 8:00am- 9:30am
  • Session format: Players are divided into teams based on age where they’ll practice cricket skills for the first half of the session and then play a modified game during the second half of the session. The session concludes with the announcement of players of the week and a hearty rendition of the Junior Club song
  • What to bring: All cricket equipment is provided – please bring a drink bottle
  • Clothing/ footwear: All children must wear a hat, sunscreen, regular sports shoes and their Milo in2Cricket shirt (received in the participant pack as part of registration). Participants are also welcome to purchase Gordon Cricket Club clothing through our online store.
  • Wet Weather: sessions will proceed unless the oval is closed by the council – please ring the Willoughby Council Wet Weather Line on (02) 9777 7631 or check online at: http://www.willoughby.nsw.gov.au/Community/Recreation/Ground-Closures/

The Milo in2Cricket program is designed to identify and develop not just future players but also future administrators, coaches and support staff. To achieve this - and to keep registration costs down - parents are vital to the success of the program. We strongly encourage parents to stay and assist with their child during each session – no experience is necessary and we’re confident that you will enjoy yourself and learn a thing or two along the way. There is space on the registration form to nominate for coaching and other roles in the Gordon in2Cricket program.

To enrol your child in the 2016/17 program please complete the registration form, otherwise please reach out to the team at in2Cricket@gordoncricket.com.
