Call out for Junior Coaches

Dear Parents,
After a very successful year in 2017/2018, where we saw Rupertswood Cricket club win the U/17 and U/13 premiership, a number of our coaches have decided to call it a day. 
For the upcoming season 2018/2019 we will be requiring the services of U/11, U/13, U/15 and U/17 boys coaches and a U/16s girls coach.
If you have been thinking about passing on your cricket prowess or just want to spend time with your children, now is the time to give it a go. There is no requirement to have played the game nor do you need to go it alone if you want to coach with another parent, but just a have a desire to see children have fun and improve their cricket.
The training nights and times will be up to the coaches to determine based on work commitments and we can be as flexible as needed to help you out.
The Rupertswood cricket club will provide all of the necessary equipment and support required to coach the children.
The local cricket association, the Gisborne and District Cricket association (GDCA) will provide training in Community Coaching (formally level 1) free of charge at the following venues and dates. I will be heading to the Gisborne session and would love to see some parents there as well.
