they designed. We had a staff meeting this morning and the teachers further expressed how impressed they were with the sessions and reported that all children loved their lesson.
The coaches you sent were wonderful and very professional. They were great with the children and so patient with the kindy kids!
Thanks again. Yesterday has made a big impact on staff and students.”

Assistant Principal, John Purchase Public School
Without volunteers we don’t have a Club and we are fortunate to have a so many quality people who volunteer their time to support our Club. We have an estimated 265 active volunteers who are involved in activities such as: Club and Division Executive roles, Coaching, Team Manager, scoring, umpiring and in In2Cricket (Kanga) our Assistant Coaches, Assistant Managers and Gear Stewards. This doesn’t include those folk who run BBQ’s and provide back-up support when ever needed. Thank you.
CNSW Volunteer of the Year
Our Girls Director, Graham Chivers was again nominated by CNSW as their nomination for the 2016 NSW Volunteer of the Year awards. To be nominated once is a magnificent achievement. To be nominated in successive years is extra-ordinary.
Sport NSW ‘Community Sports Awards 2017’
We are delighted to have been selected by CNSW as ‘Community Cricket Club of the Year’. We now go on to represent Cricket at the NSW Awards for all Community Sporting Clubs at the NSW Parliament on 29 June 2017 (after the print date of this Yearbook).
The NSW Community Sports Awards, presented by Sport NSW, recognise outstanding achievements
and contributions to community sport in NSW – community-sports-awards/ . As there are more than 500,000 people across NSW who voluntarily dedicate their time every year through their involvement in sporting clubs and organisations this is a significant achievement. Importantly, it is recognition for the 260+ volunteers in our Club and our culture of giving everyone a ‘fair go’.
Pink Stumps day and McGrath Foundation recognition
Pink Stumps day
A big thanks to Lyndal Harrison, U9s Convenor and pictured below (right), took the baton to organise our Pink Stumps Day this season. This was another great day with our 5 U9’s playing double headers against each other on the last day of Competition. The following photos capture the spirit of the day:
In addition to our Annual Pink Stumps Day our U15 parents also initiated, ran and raised over $2,000 for the McGrath Foundation at Armidale in a Pink Day to coincide with the Pink Day at the SCG during the 3rd Test.
