Copy of email from:

Hi all – GDCA representative  selection trials will be held this month.

i would appreciate you communicate  this information to your coaches – to invite past members of the GDCA  representative squads, and prospective players from their teams who they believe  have an ability to compete at this level of cricket. It is essential that  someone from each club sends me with a list of all players the club has  nominated for each age level, prior to the selection trial  date.

an important note is that the  times for the u12 and u14 trials has changed from the Junior Coordinators report  tabled at the meeting tonight.


Under 16 age will be having  an initial  training and get together on 13 October 2013, 10 AM, at Tony Clarke Oval,  Macedon.  All squad members from last season, and Pathways players  are invited to attend. If you have suggestions of other players who may be of a suitable skill level  to participate in Representative Cricket, please contact me by return email. i  am aware of an additional player nominated from each of Sunbury, Gisborne and  Wallan CC.

For all the other age  levels:

Sunday, 20 and 27 October:   under 13’s Langama Park – Sunbury United,  Mitchells Lane, 9am – 2pm

Should weather intervene,  reserve dates will be organised.

We ask that nominations be limited to  players that coaches feel are of an appropriate ability.

Players attending the under  12/13/14/15 trials are required to have the  following:

·          A completed  GDCA junior selection trials profile form

·          Cricket gear  including bat, pads, gloves, helmets, protectors, and sun hat. If the player is  the main wicket-keeper for his team, please bring wicket-keeping  gloves.

·          Practice ball  in good condition for the player’s own use.

·          Club shirt or  white shirt, and tracksuit pants. (No GDCA Rep shirts)

·          water bottle  (and a snack, and sunscreen)

Please ensure that all your nominated  players are informed of those requirements.

The fixtures for the GDCA junior  representative program matches are available for viewing on the GDCA website at Players who are not able to commit to attending  the matches may attend selection trials, but must inform their age level  coach, or GDCA Junior Coordinator.

Coaches are still to be appointed for  the under 12 and under 14 teams, and interested persons should contact the GDCA  Junior Coordinator as soon as possible.

Team managers are required for all  teams.

Please contact me for further  information.
