Dress Code & Equipment
For training - whites not required. Suitable training gear and trainers will suffice but spikes will be required if it is wet and training is on the grass.
HOWEVER...NO SPIKES ARE ALLOWED IN THE NETS.
All other Cricket Equipment for ages Under 9 to Under 11 will be provided by the club. Helmets will be available for all age groups. ALL COLTS SHOULD PROVIDE THEIR OWN ABDOMINAL PROTECTOR and support to keep it in place!
For matches - White trousers, white cricket shirt, white sweater, a cap and white trainers/boots (with spikes for damp conditions) are required for all matches. New colts do not need to purchase white kit until they are selected to play in a match.
The club would prefer that in matches our colts wear a white shirt with a WHCC emblem and cap for matches. The supplier is Romida Sports and orders can be made online via our Club Shop
Parents/colts are reminded that the cricket balls provided in the nets belong to the club and should be returned to their coach after practice.
Wet Weather Policy
Match days – Contact manager of age group.
Training - look out for messages on Twitter and Facebook. Age Group managers will be advised by 5pm if the sessions are cancelled.
PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE YOUR CHILD UNATTENDED AT TRAINING UNTIL HIS COACH IS PRESENT.
HEALTH & SAFETY
The nets can only be used when there is a coach present to supervise, otherwise the nets will be locked. However, they will be open at weekends, to be used , whilst matches are taking place. NO SPIKES SHOULD BE WORN IN THE NETS.
A cricket helmet MUST be worn when batting or wicket keeping with a hard ball. ONLY soft balls should be used when coaches are not present, particularly on practice nights in the outfield. Please do not leave your child unsupervised in the nets or during matches.
Other protection such as gloves, pads and an abdomen protector (box) WITH THE CORRECT SUPPORT, should also be worn with a hard ball. Thigh pads are a further option.
