Diamond Valley Leader
Junior Cricket Academy, Lower Plenty Cricket Club
We are a community-based local cricket club with a small membership. We struggled to fill an Under 16 team last season (we had to merge with another local club to form a side) so we are seeking to encourage participation and develop skills of junior players. We would book an indoor (evening) net facility and intend to attract a player with a profile to encourage kids to attend and hopefully sign up to play cricket with us on Friday nights in summer.
The major costs associated with the project are
Hire of net facilities and book a celebrity player (such as Adam Dale or Michael Lewis)
The $1,000 grant will be used
$480 on net hire and $400 appr on coaching
How they raise the rest of the funding
Hopefully not applicable but if so, we would use credit before player subscriptions were received later in the year.
