Pre-Season for Senior Players Important information about training and membership.
We are pleased to confirm that under the latest guidance we are able to open up our practice facilities from this Monday 29th March.
We’re Back Open
As was the case last season there are a number of restrictions that are required as part of the Covid protocols which we will be asking everyone to follow, including bringing hand sanitiser to the ground and for every player to sanitise hands on arrival and every twenty minutes or six overs thereafter.
It will also be necessary to book nets in advance for the designated times when nets are available for use outside of the normal training times for both the senior and junior sessions.
Senior Training sessions will need to be booked in advance, whilst our Junior organisers will be in contact via the usual channels to confirm arrangements for the start of Junior Training on 19th April.
Our first senior training session will be on Thursday 1st April with two separate sessions taking place:
- Session One – 17:30 – 19:00 – Net session first followed by 30 minutes fielding Practice – aimed at U15’s, 4th & 5th XI’s primarily
- Session Two – 18:00 – 19:30 – 30 Minutes fielding followed by a net session – aimed at 2nd & 3rd XI’s primarily
In line with last season everyone who wishes to attend will need to book their session by emailing email@example.com with your preferred session – Ross will then confirm your session based on ensuring we don’t have too many for either session. These groupings will remain the same for the first three Thursday sessions, ie 1st April, 8th April and 15th April and after this we will review the procedure based on the latest guidelines that will be in force at that time.
The following Slots are available for club members to book a net in a maximum group of six players for 50 minutes, starting on the hour – ie a net can be booked for 14:00 to 14:50 and the next session will start at 15:00 in the same fashion as last season. Bookings should be requested via email to firstname.lastname@example.org – Ross will confirm these bookings on an evening once his coaching commitments have finished!
- Friday 02 April – 13:00 – 16:00
- Sunday 04 April 10:00 – 12:00 (More Slots may become available)
- Monday 05 April 12:00 – 17:00
NB – the latest time indicates the last slot that is available to be booked.
We will inform everyone of available slots for Tuesday 6th April through to Friday 9th April on Friday 2nd April.
Please note in line with the current guidance changing rooms will remain closed, as will the clubhouse so please bring any drinks etc that you may require during your sessions.
New players who are interested in coming along should contact Matt Stinson on 07702 047644 or email email@example.com
Finally, On Membership
It is expected that all players have renewed their memberships by the time they arrive at the ground for any pre-season outdoor training session.
If you have not paid your membership, you can do so here.
