Hello Cricket Families!
May is here, and it’s time to kick off another season of cricket!
Our first game is coming up in a couple of weeks, so it’s time to get down to business. First practice will be Wed 4 May at 5 PM. Sessions regularly after that, Wed 5-6:30, and Saturdays 10-12. There will be more games this year, so our Saturday times and locations will vary.
***Our first match is Sunday 15 May at PISE starting at 12***
Please advise ASAP if you will be available to play in this match. The rest of the schedule is being finalised as we speak, as we are just waiting to see if there will be a 5th team added to the league this year.
There will be six special events this season, which will be of interest to some of you: There will be two Girls’ Cricket Days, hosted by the Wicket Maidens, our local ladies team, and all of our awesome female players will be encouraged to attend those. For our older and most experienced players, there will be two ‘Junior A Showcase’ events, featuring the top 25 players in the region. We are hosting the first one on 29 May, so hopefully we get quite a few of our players into that game. Lastly, 2 exhibition events against Campbell River CC and their new junior program. This will be a Kanga match, followed by a Hardball match, with a BBQ, all happening up at the Cowichan Cricket Ground at Shawnigan Lake.
So, lots of exciting things happening! Looking forward to seeing you all out on the pitch again ????
PS (Kanga will be starting at the beginning of June, and a separate email will be sent out in a week or two with those details)
