These school holidays usually are the time when footy boots are swapped for cricket whites. It’s once again not the case this year.
Community sport has been put on hold into next month in NSW due to COVID-19.
Canowindra Junior Cricket Club is currently taking expressions of interest in playing due to the mandate.
This can be done via the club’s Facebook page (search for Canowindra Junior Cricket Club) or by contacting Julie Fliedner via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This way the club can begin to organise our teams and you can keep up to date with all the latest developments for cricket.
“Everything going well our season will hopefully start mid to late October. We play our cricket with Cowra and Grenfell in the Cowra Junior Cricket Association. As a club, we offer teams in Stage 1, Stage 2, and Stage 3. We also offer Junior Blasters for our younger, entry level cricketers,” said Julie.
Ages are just a guide with junior cricket, as skill level is always considered when placing young cricketers in the right competition to maximise their enjoyment and skill development.
“We are very excited about the increase of female participation in recent years, and hope to see this continuing this season. We strongly encourage any and all young girls and women in Canowindra to participate in our club,” she said.
Regardless of some doubt and uncertainty still, Cricket NSW assures that local level enrollments are healthy.
Cricket NSW CEO Lee Germon said the season timing remains conditional on health orders.
“We are working with everyone to be ready. Early indications are that registration numbers are very strong as we all look forward to a great summer of cricket,” he said.
So dust off the cricket kit, wash the whites and register your interest today.
