2020-2021 Season update

The Ocean Grove Cricket Club is preparing for the coming 2020-2021 cricket season.  We think the smell of fresh-cut grass and seeing kids playing in the sun gives us something to look forward to at this time.   On that, we understand that current state government COVID restrictions are creating some level of uncertainty for the season starting, however, the club is committed to being ready to field crickets teams at all levels including junior boys and girls once we are given the go ahead.
This coming season the Club plans to field boys’ junior teams in all age groups, girls’ junior teams in stages 1, 2 & 3.  Additionally, plans are in progress to run the Woolworths Blast program for children under 9 years old.
To this end, the club will be conducting come and try days and registration days for both girls and boys from late September 2020, dates as follows:
Girls: come & try / registration day – Saturday October 3rd from 9:30 am to midday
Boys: come & try / registration day – Sunday September 27th from 9:30 am to midday
The club will ensure that all Cricket Australia and Government directions in relation to COVID safety and compliance are followed to ensure we have a safe playing environment for all participants.  There will be more information sharing as further directives are issued by Cricket Australia, in particular conditions and rules of play and equipment sharing.
If you would like to become part of the club this coming season, please contact the club at ogccjuniors@gmail.com or ogccgrubbers@gmail.cpm and we will include on our players list to help prepare allocation of players into the various age groups.  Also, if you have any friends that have missed out on their sport during the winter months, share this with them and ask them to come and play cricket at the Ocean Grove Cricket Club.
Also, we have an important request to all parents of the club – as always, we are looking for volunteers to help to coach and/or manage the junior teams.  The Club regards these roles at the junior level as enormously important and will provide strong support, advice and training as needed.  Anyone who is interested in either of these incredibly rewarding roles will be seriously considered.  All team coaches and manager roles are open for application.  If you are interested, please let us know at the above email addresses and someone will contact you to further discuss.
We look forward to seeing you all soon to be part of the 2020-2021 cricket season with the Ocean Grove Cricket Club – we love cricket and Go the Grubbers….

Thanks & Regards
