Gear

All playing & coaching gear required will be supplied to the team coach at the start of the season, please help the team look after it. More gear is available as needed, please contact GUCC Office. Children are welcome to bring their own gear, but please name and put a phone number on it!

Clothing

Closed in shoes and a sunhat for practices and games. New coloured club shirts are online and in-store at Cricket Express shortly!  

Coaching

The Club is reliant on volunteer support to coach and manage these teams. The team's coach or coaches take team practices, are responsible for the gear bag and help to set up games on Saturday mornings. Don't worry! We have lots of resources to help you if you're new to coaching and are happy to answer any questions you may have.  

Cancellations

ACA will cancel all junior and youth morning cricket should there be an Auckland weather advisory from the Metservice advising that it is unsafe to travel to games. This will be communicated through the ACA website or Facebook. ACA encourage Coaches/Managers to contact their opposition if they are unsure whether the game is going ahead. These details will be provided to team coaches ahead of the season.
