Milo in2Cricket starts in October

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 2017/18 season. The dates will be from October 14, 2017 to March 3, 2018 with a break from 23rd December to 27th January. There will be 15 sessions in all. And registrations are now open.  

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

With the program commencing in October, the time is right to register your child for the coming season. Registrations are now open. If you have any questions please contact Ash Doolan at ash@cricketappeal.com.au. The link to the registration is at the bottom of the article.

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 2017/18 program please complete the registration form, otherwise please reach out to the team at ash@cricketappeal.com.au.
