Welcome to Milo In2Cricket at Holland Park Junior Cricket Club
One again, we will be running TWO In2Cricket programs. We have our returning Saturday morning program at Holland Park State School from 8:30 to 10:30am and we are also running a Friday afternoon program at Salisbury Super Sports. This program is indoors and will run rain, hail or shine.....but not during blackouts I guess? Saturday morning.....well we shouldn't need to worry about the blackouts!
Please note, as many of our coaches are also involved in coaching teams on Saturdays, Saturday morning In2Cricket numbers will be limited this year.
Friday afternoon is our preferred time for running this program with qualified coaches, a BBQ tea and a friendly club atmoshpere being key to ensuring we lay the foundations for "Cricketers for Life"
Sessions: Friday 5:00-6:30 at Salisbury Suport Sports or Saturday Morning 8:30 - 10:00 at Holland Park State School
Date: Season commences Friday 11th October until 14th December then during Term 1 2014 (February - March)

What do we do?
In2Cricket is an introduction to cricket where kids will be taught the basics of catching, bowling and batting in a safe environment. We use soft balls and plastic bats and the program is all about the kids keeping active for the entire time. We have trained coaches to guide the kids through the program, but we have found the best results come when Mum and/or Dad get involved.
We welcome and encourage all parents to be on the field with their kids, reinforcing the message, throwing balls, catching the wayward throws, and generally having some fun. As I heard one of our senior coaches say the other day "...the best coaching happens at home." The more you are involved, the more the kids will enjoy it.
When do we start and what do we bring?
We kick of Friday the 11th October for the Friday Night Owls and Saturday 12th October for the Earlybirds. Bring along a smile, waterbottle and sunscreen (not required Friday...should I have to say that?) and hopefully we will all have some fun!
What happens the first week?
We will be handing out the kits on the first day so be prepared for us to go a little overtime at the end. And don't be afraid to come and ask if you have a question!
In2Cricket at the Gabba 2012
The "kids from HP" had a great day at the 4th day of the test match last season. It should be a HUGE day at the Ashes this year!
