Glenelg District Cricket Club, Winner of Club of the Year 2017!
The Glenelg District Cricket Club has representation across juniors and seniors, with five senior teams, six junior teams and three junior academies catering for both female and male participation. To ensure participation at all levels and providing pathways to elite programs, the club offers dual registration for both Premier Club level and Community Club level.
The club caters for significant junior participation through their U/13, U/14 and U/16 teams, including female and male academies for U/11. Along with the junior academies, the club also has an academy in Mt. Gambier, where players are transported to Adelaide for hands on experience in the South Australian Cricket Association (SACA) Competition. The club annually runs SACA’s nationally recognised junior In2Cricket cricket program, which has 70 children registered from across the community aged 5-8. This program provides opportunity to develop and enhance fundamental motor skills, social and team building skills.
The club has worked hard to cater for and promote inclusion across all levels. This includes new female cricket teams and playing opportunities for Sri Lankan, Indian and Pakistan players to be part of a welcoming and positive club environment.
Along with the time and effort assigned to skill development, the club and committee representatives spend a significant amount of hours ensuring their club is sustainable through sound governance. Committee members regularly attend the club development workshops provided by Council and are registered with the City of Holdfast Bay’s Club Volunteer Pool Program.
The Glenelg District Cricket Club should be commended on the service they provide to its members and the broader community. As winners of the Club of the Year award the club received a $500 Rebel Sport Gift Voucher to use on much needed equipment.
The City of Holdfast Bay congratulates the Glenelg District Cricket Club for all their hard work and we wish you continued success in 2018.
