Players are required to purchase a team top, a protector and a club cap. The club has available bats, pads and helmets for players that do not have their own gear. However most players do have their own equipment. Please note, if the relevant authorities do not allow the sharing of this equipment due to COVID19 rules, then players will need to bring 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 your 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.
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), club functions and fundraising. This year the coach will prepare a roster for each family itemising your responsibilities each week. 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.
