Coach­ing clinic for ju­niors

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

MONTO Ju­nior Cricket Club will host mem­bers of the Queens­land Fire women’s cricket team for a coach­ing clinic on Jan­uary 18.

Court­ney Hill and Beth Mooney will be joined by Wide Bay re­gional cricket man­ager Paul Trace at Monto Com­bined Sports Grounds for a day of learn­ing skills and hav­ing fun. The day is free and open to chil­dren of any level of crick­et­ing abil­ity.

Monto Ju­nior Cricket Club sec­re­tary Tracey Pat­tie said the mem­bers of the women’s cricket team were trav­el­ling to the town at their own ex­pense and a min­i­mum of 15 at­ten­dees was re­quired to make their jour­ney worth­while. So far, 12 have con­firmed.

“We don’t care about abil­ity, we just need more peo­ple, from chil­dren to adults, help­ing in what­ever way they can in the club,” Pat­tie said.

The club of­fers coach­ing and com­pe­ti­tion on Wed­nes­days, from 4–5pm for five to eight-year-olds, and from 3.30–5.30pm for eight years and older.

There will be a meet­ing at the Monto Pool on Jan­uary 18 at noon to dis­cuss a change of com­pe­ti­tion day from Wed­nes­day to Satur­day and to at­tract more vol­un­teers.

Any­one want­ing to be­come in­volved with Monto Ju­nior Cricket Club, can phone Tracey Pat­tie on 0487 672 229 or email tracey­matt@big­pond.com.
