After each game players will move down three batting positions and over the course of the season will experience batting in all positions. If a player misses a game they will miss batting and bowling in that weeks particular spot and the player that takes their spot in the side will play in the missing players position, on the players return they will play in their next allocated position.

Equipment

Players are required to purchase a team top, a protector and a Cap. The club will make available Bats, Pads and helmets for players that do not have their own gear. However most players do have their own equipment. If you are planning on purchasing equipment we would suggest that you acquire gear that is correct for your Son or Daughter now. Do not buy Cricket gear that you’re Son or Daughter “will grow into”. If you are unsure of what to purchase all of our Coaches would be very happy to advise you.

 

Helpers
Point Cook Cricket Club is a not for profit sporting group and we rely on the support of every players family to help in the following roles, Team manager, Scoring, Umpiring, match day helper (setting up grounds), match reports / Photos and fund raising. This year the coach will prepare a roster for each family itemising your responsibilities each week. To help spread the work load over the entire playing group we have included a "volunteer levy" of $50 per family, this levy will be returned once a few of the required tasks have been completed. 
Please note that a parent or guardian for each player is required to stay at the game. If a parent or guardian is not at the ground then that player will not be allowed to take to the field.
