Player responsibilities



Wet Weather

Wet Weather

Although we are due for a dry season you just never know s0 all please note the following in the event of wet weather:

1)      Training - Chatswood Oval every Wednesday

In the event that training won't be held due to wet weather we will do our best to update the website by 2pm on the Wednesday. Please note that frequently we will choose to train without the nets rather than just calling it off. Therefore, unless it has been raining for days, or it is bucketing at the time then training in some shape or form will be on.

Check the Facebook and the website for updates.

2)      Match Day Guidelines

1st and 2nd Grade along with Brewer Shield all play on quality turf pitches. It is a requirement of the competition playing conditions that these grounds be covered the night before hence unless it is raining when the match is due to commence or water has made its way under the covers, it is very likely that you will play. Note** if you are playing at home and the match is called off you will still need to attend the ground to remove and fold the covers. Your Captain will let you know what is required.

3rd Grade and Juniors play on synthetic pitches and it is very unlikely that your matches will be called off unless the Council closes the ground. This doesn't happen very often.

The Match Day Golden Rule for ALL PLAYERS

On match day turn up to the ground unless you receive a call from your Captain or Manager telling you the game has been called off!!

Please also be reminded that you can check the website for:

Club Woman of the Year - This perpetual award is the most prestigious award bestowed by the Club. The award is decided by the club with one vote to each member of the club.

Player performance, though it will be considered, is not to be rated above the fore-mentioned.

Club Player of the Year - to be decided by statistical records of the seasons performances by each individual player, to include all performances by an individual regardless of the grade in which the performance was attained.

Most Promising Player - awarded to a young member of the club the Executive believes shows the most promising future; the current seasons performances and representative honours compared to the previous season are to be the main criteria.

Encouragement Award - awarded to the person judged by the Executive to be the most improved player. All aspects of their game are to be considered, and current seasons form compared to the previous seasons is to be taken into account.

Player Behaviour

Player Behaviour

 3rd grade premiers 2008/09PLAYER BEHAVIOUR

The Club promotes competitive but fair play of the highest standard and supports the ideals and traditions of the game of cricket.

All players, officials and office bearers are expected to abide with the Code of Conduct as laid down by the SCAWC and NSWCA in the Competition Handbook.

All players are expected to provide their captains with support and assistance. Expressions of frustration, disappointment and anger are best conducted away from the team and spectators. Players should keep in mind the potential negative effects that their actions may have.

If players have feedback or suggestions, consult your captain, manager or a member of the Club Committee.

Grade Players are expected to attend training and arrive at grounds at least 1 hour before the match commences.

Team Captain

Team Captain

Captains are appointed as they are perceived to have leadership and inter-personal skills. Their responsibilities are not confined to on-field activities but include management off the field as well. However, where a manager is appointed to a team these duties would be shared accordingly.

The attached job description outlines the club's expectations.



Practice is a vital component in developing player skills and the Club policy, requires players to attend all training sessions each week where they will learn many new drills and skills to help further their cricket abilities both on and off the field.

• Official club practice is conducted on Wednesdays starting from 5.30pm during daylight saving. Venue to be confirmed (Chatswood oval is undergoing renovations). Please check the Training Session Page for details - watch website for wet weather updates for training
• Nets are graded to ensure maximum benefit to players. This year we will also be running some drills with a mix of senior and junior players to learn from each other.
• Specialist skill sessions will also be run during the season. Guest coaches will attend from time to time. Keep an eye on the website for updates on when these special sessions will be available.
• All players are to wear Club attire at all training sessions.
• Unless it is torrentially raining, training is on. If the turf wickets are too wet activities will be organised- watch the website for wet weather updates.
• Players are expected to participate during the entire session.
• Players are expected to attend the complete session unless work commitments prevent them from doing so. If for some reason you are unable to attend training, please let me or your team captain know as soon as possible.
• Club practice is the opportunity to work on improving your strengths and work on eliminating your weaknesses. The more you put in, the more you will get out.
• Club practices will be demanding but enjoyable and rewarding.
