Dear all members, colts parents, coaches & volunteers,
With the cricket season quickly approaching, colts cricket assistance and help is now urgently required. Following an unexpected change in job role, I, unfortunately, do not have the time to commit to running and leading the junior setup for the imminent season ahead, alongside my many other responsibilities for the club.
With 2020 wiped out due to the pandemic, the 2019 junior season was once again extremely well attended and the coaches and volunteers who helped run each session were so grateful for the support of parents during the summer weeks. At its peak, we had over 60 juniors all being coached and developed at the club.
Without new management & coaches coming forward in the coming weeks, junior cricket at Ashburton simply won't be possible this summer, and it is likely the setup will fold. The colts setup has always been self-sufficient and the club has funding in place to remunerate coaching, courses and any relevant expenses.
Previous sessions have been just an hour long-lasting around 12/13 weeks. However, the roles provide any management with the ability to re-structure and design the implementation of colt's cricket at Varwell Field, to how they see the best fit. The role is extremely rewarding - to see junior players progress through the age-group sides with the ultimate aim of players representing the club on a Saturday.
In return, you will receive full training/guidance from experienced committee members, a database of players and the full financial backing of the club's committee.
If you have any questions about the roles or would like to learn more, please don't hesitate to pick up the phone or email me.
Hon. Secretary & Hon. Fixtures Secretary
