Youth Cricket 2022

Welcome to the new 2022 season of Instonians Youth Cricket! To all new players and parents, a particularly warm welcome is extended from the Coaching Team at Instonians.

At Instonians Youth Cricket our Mission Statement is, “Ensuring fun, inclusivity and enjoyment to develop confidence and self-esteem in all our young members through playing Cricket”. The Club puts a strong emphasis on the whole child and as such operates an inclusive approach for all its players. Please sit down with your child and talk through the Codes of Conduct that are in this leaflet. We are nearly ready to get playing again and we have been busy behind the scenes getting ready for what is hopefully a full season of cricket.

The Coaching Team
The coaching team will once again be led by our Director of Youth Cricket James
Cameron Dow. He will be assisted by:
• Ani Chore
• Jonny Waite
• Shane Getkate
• Cade Carmichael
• Cian Robertson
• And various other players from the club

Registration
Registration for Camps and Training can be made at TeamFeePay

Easter Camp
We are going to run an Easter camp from the 11th to 14th April at Osborne Playing fields. The camp run from 13.30 to 15.30.
The camp is for U11 age groups and up and we will sort into age/ability groups when they arrive. The registration can be found on the above link.

Training Schedule
Regular training starts on week beginning 25th April. The schedule is as follows:

Day Time Venue Group
Monday 17.30 - 19.00 Osborne U11 Boys
Monday 18.45 - 20.15 Osborne U15 All
Wednesday 17.30 - 18.45 Osborne U11 Girls
Wednesday 18.30 - 20.00 Osborne U13 All
Friday 18.30 - 19.45 Shaw's Bridge U9 All

Our emphasis this year is to play as many games as possible rather than run a Sunday morning coaching session.
All those players who represent the NCU Talent teams are invited to train in both their own age group and the age group above. Please also note that some of these players may also play up an age group from time to time.

Heja APP
All communication with be through the Heja app this year. Once you have registered your coach will send out the code for your team. All games and practice sessions will be setup on the app and we would encourage you to keep your notifications turned on as it helps the coaches a huge amount when running practice sessions and picking teams etc.

Summer Camps
James will also be taking summer camps at Osborne for all age groups with dates to follow. We would hugely appreciate as many boys and girls as possible support these as we have obviously made an extra investment in youth this year.

Adult Membership update

You may not but know the club switched over to Go Cardless for collecting membership payments in June 2020. So far this has been very unsuccessful as we didn’t have contact details for most people. We can now however take payment by DD by clicking on the appropriate link below and it only takes 2 minutes …… We would much prefer DD than Cheque as it makes it much easier for us to manage going forward

Could I ask that you do this as a matter of urgency as the club has lost a lot of income over the past 18 months and really needs your support …….

Cricket Crowdfunder Appeal

Dear Friend,

Herein below our Crowdfunding appeal (our first) for 2022 to promote youth cricket at Instonians CC.

We are renowned throughout Ireland for our youth cricket set up. We have been winning NCU Cups and All Ireland cups over the past decade and beyond. We have loads of boys and girls in current and past NCU teams and Irish underage teams. The latest being Amy Hunter and Jack Dickson!

But like everyone else we have suffered badly from the Covid pandemic! We have lost lots of revenue over the last 2 years and really need to continue investing in training facilities, equipment and coaching for our club. This will obviously benefit all members and players at the club not just our youth section.

With your help we can make this a reality! For every pound you donate SportNI will match it up to 5k. So, our target is 5k and if reached a grand total of 10k. We know times are hard! But every donation no matter how small will make a difference.

As Chairperson I promise every penny will be spent on youth cricket! We want kids of all ages to have fun again meet new friends and develop new skills! This is ambitious but that’s our goal! Help us reach it in the next 27 days!

Thank you

Norman Shannon
Chairperson
