We Don’t Like Cricket – We LOVE It!

Cricket clinics ran over the holidays.

Traditionally the most popular sport at the College and an activity that mobilises the sporting community across the greater Brisbane area, this weekend heralds the start of the cricket season. Facilitating a cricket game takes a lot of manpower. From managing to coaching, umpiring to scoring, the quality of our boys cricket experience relies on everyone chipping in to help out.

Over the coming weeks, parents will be asked to assist with umpiring, scoring, assisting with BBQs and canteens and setting up and packing up for each game. On behalf of our cricket players and coaches I ask parents to find time to assist in an area that they are comfortable in. Speak to your team coach or parent manager to find out how you can support your sons cricket team. You might even volunteer to be a team manager! In addition to this, each week via the College app, our Sport Support Group will be allocating teams to assist with BBQ and canteen duties at home games. Please follow the process to nominate a timeslot when you can volunteer and be aware that the canteen is operating out of the Brothers Oval site for cricket season. The success of our cricket program at ATC is in part to the work put into our coaching staff, overseen by Mr Brett Henschell who ensures the quality of the coaching is of a very high standard. The more parent assistance coaches have, the better the experience will be for our boys. Best of luck to all of our cricketers this week and thanks in advance to parents for your support of our program.
