2019 Golden Hill Girls Cricket

Golden Hill Girls is the girls cricket arm of Golden Hill Sports/Bristol YMCA Cricket Club.

Girls Cricket was formed in 2016 by enthusiastic parents keen to give their daughters and girls generally a chance to play the fantastic team sport of cricket. The ethos of the girls cricket is to give “girls a chance and to encourage participation”.

Golden Hill Sports supports the nationwide campaign “This Girl Can” which encourages girls and ladies to become involved in sport;

U15’s Girls playing in the U13s Girls league


We only have a few U15’s. With the permission on the managers for the other U13’s girl’s league we will be able to include U15’s in these games.

The U15’s can also play in the Ladies Team

U17’s & U15’s and the Ladies Team

This year the U17’s & U15’s will hopefully have some softball festivals and also been joining in the Ladies hardball team. This is an exciting year as we have the first girls from our youth cricket session now working with the Ladies team.

We are also delighted that some of our U17’s and U15’s will be helping coach our younger members on Wednesday night.

Ladies Team

As mentioned earlier this is the first year where our youth players are now playing for the Ladies team. This is very much the way forward and puts Ladies and Girls Cricket firmly on the map!

Ladies cricket is captained by Jan Street and is assisted by Catherine Bhart (who is one of the Girls Cricket Coaches). You will also see a lot more of Lionel Harris and Chris Ball who are the Ladies team coaches.

The first game of the Ladies season will be an internal game against our U17/15/13 girls team.

Mums softball

Each year the mums come out in force and give cricket a go in our end of season “Girls v Mums” cricket evening. The mums then say – “I wish we could have practiced before the evening or indeed play a few more games”.

Mums – time to have some fun! We can arrange some training for you!

There are also some fun soft ball festivals.

Come on you ladies! Get organised – let me know and I will arrange.

Play Cricket


For U13’s league cricket and the recent indoor games we need to record team selection, individual scores and the final results on a website called Play Cricket; we can be found under the Bristol YMCA.

Our Website


I would ask all parents and coaches to help contribute to the website content so we can share all the good news, photographs and events.

Welcome to new coaches


The same old faces are of course going to be there; but I am delighted to welcome new volunteers, which is important as the size of the girls cricket continues to grow.

Welcome to: Richard Chaplin, David Shufflebottom, Stuart Priscott

Also this year we are delighted to have some Coach Support Workers – who will be working with the coaches. Welcome to Millie Chaplin, Ruby Gregson Hicks, Natalie Bhart and Niamh Turner.

Allocation of coaches: to start the season off in a organised format we have allocated coaches to the following teams.

 

Under 17’s/15’s and 13’s Jamie Woodworth, Jim Fitzgerald, Richard Chaplin
Under 11’s Simon Granville George, Stuart Priscott, David Shufflebottom and Chris Drew
Under 9’s Dan Beasley Suffolk, Charlie Bending, Catherine Bhart

Coaches v City Clerks CC

The coaches have one cricket fixture against City Clerks Cricket Club.

Please come along and support – 7th May – start 6pm – T20 game at Golden Hill.

First Aiders


Our qualified first aiders are Dan, Charlie, Simon, Jim, Chris, Jamie, Lisa, Kelly and Viv.

Sign in registration


For the summer training sessions all girls are required to sign in and sign out for each training session in line with our child welfare procedures.

When playing in an organised game there is no signing in procedures and we will know who to expect and who arrives from the team sheet.

Subscriptions and Gift Aid


Girls Cricket summer season subscriptions are:

£95 which includes a team shirt with your name and number; and cricket trousers.

Payment


Please can you pay by internet banking using the following Sort Code 30-00-01 Account number 02926191

** We are a registered charity and would ask that all members provide a gift aid form to be signed by parents.  If you have completed one in the last 4 years a new form is not required. Please return forms to Chris Drew – a scanned copy to chris.drew333@icloud.com will be fine.

Taster sessions


Anyone joining us for the first time is of course welcome and the first few weeks are free taster sessions to see if you enjoy the cricket.

Equipment


Under 11 – playing softball kwik cricket – we have all the equipment. You just need to provide your daughter with a good pair of running shoes and a water bottle!

Under 13s and 15s playing hardball – we are encouraging players to start purchasing their own kit.  It really helps that you have a helmet that fits nicely and that the bat is the right size and weight for your daughter.  Pads and gloves can be obtained at Sports Direct very cheaply! We have a small supply of spares if you do not have all the equipment.

Team shirts and cricket trousers

When you join us and pay the annual subscription we will provide you with a team shirt with your daughters name and number; and also cricket trousers.

Parents – please get involved and don’t forget a drink after Wednesday training


We really need parents to help and to lessen the burden on a few!   Activities ranging from pre match warm ups – catching drills, providing half time refreshments, scoring.

Girls Cricket tends to be a social gathering with the Bar in the Club House being used as a welcome refresher after the training sessions.

Scoring – training for parents


First game of the season we are suggesting a scoring lesson for parents.  Please let me know if you are willing

Sponsorship


We need to provide a new match ball for each league and the cost of this soon adds up. We are looking match day sponsorship i.e. companies sponsoring the match ball for say £20. Please let me know if your business can support us.

For the last three years Girls Cricket played a big role in Party in the Park by running stalls, giving donations of cakes and selling raffle tickets.  This year’s event will be on Saturday 14th September – please keep the date free.  We do ask all girls, their parents and their families to help, and to support Party in the Park.

Calendar


Mums v Girls – End of Season (Cricket Teas and Games) 17th July – not to be missed!

Club policies


The club operates within the ECB guidelines set out in the ‘Safe Hands – Cricket’s Policy for Safeguarding Children’ and in accordance with any other relevant guidelines.  Full details can be found on www.goldenhillsports.com

Our child welfare officer is Tony Huszlicska; who can be contacted on 07719 323532 or at anthony383@btinternet.com

Looking forward to a summer of cricket!

Please come along and join in the fun
