REPRESENTATIVE CRICKET PROGRAM 2020/21

SEJCA and CNSW have been working closely to create a new representative program for 2020/2021 that is designed to enhance the experience for junior players and continue to develop high quality cricketers in the district. The program is split into two sections:

1. U12's

This is the first level of representative cricket and the talent in this age group has yet to be identified. It is applicable to those players who are 11 as at 31/8/20 (i.e those playing in U11 this season and those "playing up" in U12's). We will be holding open trials for this age group, likely to be closer to the commencement of the 2020 / 2021 season around early August. We will send out a communication via the News Splash closer to the time and will post information on the Easts website.

2. U13 to U15

The process here is that up to 23 eligible players per age group (from all clubs in the district) will participate in SEJCA Representative Academy training sessions in late March / early April under the supervision of a range of coaches. At the conclusion of the academy sessions, 15-player squads will be selected for pre-season training. Prior to the commencement of trial games for the NSW Metropolitan Youth Championships ("MYC"), a final Playing Squad of 12 players from each age group will be selected.

Players are selected for the Academy via two methods:

1. Incumbent Representative players
2. Nominations of talented non-representative players from club Coaches

The Easts nomination process has now been completed, with the pool of nominees reviewed by the Easts Juniors committee and a final short-list submitted to Cricket NSW. Easts are fortunate to have many talented players, and our selection process has ensured that those selected are deserving of their nomination. The final academy participants will be decided after a final review from Cricket NSW within the next week and notified directly.


JUNIOR AWARDS PRESENTATIONS

The Eastern Suburbs Cricket Club Juniors award presentations have been confirmed.

The presentations have been split into two categories: Master Blaster (Friday & Saturday), and U10-U17.

1. Master Blaster (Friday and Saturday)

Each player will receive a trophy to be distributed on the field during the last session of the year.

Friday Master Blaster: 20th of March

Saturday Master Blaster: 21st of March

2. U10-U17

Each Junior team will be awarded three trophies: Best Batsman, Best Bowler, and a coach-nominated Spirit of Cricket Award. In addition, each age group will have an individual Best Batsman and Best Bowler.

This will take place on Sunday the 22nd of March at the Waverley Oval Community Room. There will be a BBQ as well as the club room’s bar, The Tank, being open for parents.

CONGRATULATIONS

Congratulations to the following U10 and U11 Easts teams who were winners in their divisions for the spring competiton. Unfortunately the finals games were called off due to the high levels of smoke that weekend, therefore the winners were the teams that finished on top of the points table as follows:

1. Easts Goannas in the U10 Abbot division
2. Easts Stingrays in the u10 Lyon divison (unbeaten)
3. Easts Wahoos in the U11 Starc division (unbeaten)
4. Easts barracudas in the U11 Dwarshuis division


JUNIOR TRAINING

We held our first junior high performance training session on Wednesday 16th run by our Junior Coach Dave Dawson. We had a great turnout from our U10 players who picked up some good skills while having a great time with their mates. We will have weekly sessions for different age groups, but each week must be separately booked via Try Booking. Please keep an eye out for the POD newsletter where we will advertise sessions.

DAVE DAWSON TRAIN THE COACHES COURSE

On Wednesday October 19 of our junior coaches gathered at Cranbrook's indoor facility to get some invaluable tips on coaching junior teams from our coach Dave Dawson. It was great to tap into Dave’s vast experience in this area and those that attended came away with some great tips and action plans.







PETER NEVILL DROPS IN ON JUNIOR TRAINING

Easts kicked off this seasons junior training program (for U10's and above) with a wicket-keeping master class run by former Australian wicket-keeper (and current NSW captain and Dolphins player) Peter Nevill. As you would expect the session was fully subscribed and our young players were able to gain some invaluable tips from one of the best in the business.
