SCC gains Good Sports Level 3 Accreditation

Good Sports Level 3 Accreditation

Sunbury Cricket Club is committed to the principles of responsible alcohol management by applying for Level 3 accreditation in the Australian Drug Foundation’s Good Sports program.

Good Sports is the first nationwide alcohol management program of its kind and is run in Victoria by Good Sports with the support of the Australian Drug Foundation and the Department of Health and Ageing. The program was developed following research conducted by the Australian Drug Foundation which indicated that by introducing responsible alcohol management practices, clubs became safer and more viable.

As a requirement of Level 3, the Club has to demonstrate alcohol responsibility and reduced alcohol related harm. The policy includes sections on bar management, the sale of low and non-alcoholic drinks, safe transport, the provision of food when alcohol is served and removing the emphasis on alcohol for player awards, functions and prizes.

We are confident that our involvement in the Good Sports program will continue to improve the environment at the Club. We are working to ensure that Sunbury Cricket Club is a great place to participate and socialise for all members of our community.

The club will regularly monitor to ensure we comply with the program. It is the responsibility of all members to make sure we do the right thing when drinking and enjoying ourselves.

Sunbury Cricket Club  Season 2014/15

At last nights committee meeting Ray Davis was officially appointed senior coach for the coming season 2014/15.

Ray impressed last season displaying leadership and a real passion for the game in his first season with our club.  Ray was the stand out candidate with a point of difference being the analysis and program which he presented the committee together with his genuine commitment to the club.

Jason McGann will remain at the club and together with new recruits we look upon building on last seasons performance.

Join me in congratulating Ray in his appointment and wishing him every success for season 2014/15.

We will be holding a “Meet the Coach” day in the coming weeks so keep posted to this site and on the SCC Facebook site.

SCC Presentation night 2013/14

What a great night was had by all at this seasons gala event, Presentation night 2013/14. Hosted by Sunbury Bowling Club in their newly refurbished function room members were treated to an entertaining night of music and a fine three coarse meal.

President Scott Yardley recognised the Committee and Coaching panel for their efforts in at times was a busy season which included the move across to the Bowling Club and the hosting of the GDCA McIntyre Cup final at Clarke Oval. The Sunbury Bowling Club were thanked for their patience and understanding as we continue to build our new partnership. Partners of the Committee were presented a small gift as a special thank you.

Highlight of the night was the Life Membership presentations to Paul Webber and Scott Yardley.

Dean Surkitt recounted and spoke of the enduring cricket career of Paul which begun at Sunbury in 1986 as a young 16 y.o. player winning a first grade premiership to his current day ability to bat at No.3 also at the highest level. Paul during his career at Sunbury spanning over four decades is the all time games record holder and had also Captained and Coached our club at different times.

Travis Botten paid tribute to Scott reflecting on the previous difficult times the club faced in which Scott was always there pitching in where needed. As a young player Scott volunteered his time helping out by running the nets and in more recent times has served as Secretary and President where passion for our club is never in short supply. Scott is a well accomplished Batsman over many seasons and was Captain of  the most recent 1st XI and U16 premiership teams.
