    Grafton gear bags

    Grafton provides team gear bags including playing and coaching gear to each team at the start of the season. We are investing heavily in upgrading this equipment to ensure each team, and each player has the best equipment to make their cricket experience the best it can be. If more gear is needed, please contact the Club

    Helmets

    The club's policy is that all players must wear a helmet. These are treated as personal items and along with boxes (you need these too) are not supplied in the team gear bag. Players are encouraged to bring their own and make sure you put your name and phone number on it. We do have some helmets at the club and if you'd like to use one, please contact us.

    Grafton playing clothing and kit

    Grafton Lions playing kit and a full range of cricket gear can be purchased online or in-store from our friends at Cricket Express Mt Eden.

    Be sure to join the MVP Loyalty Programme and make sure you mention Grafton Cricket Club.

    Coaching

    The Club is reliant on volunteer support to coach and manage these teams. The team's coach/es 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.  All of our coaches must complete the free Advanced Foundation Course be police vetted by NZC. Contact the Grafton office for more information.

    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 before the start of the season.
