General Colts information
FOR PLAYERS UP-TO AND INCLUDING YEAR 4
Training is conducted with soft balls, and so no specialist kit is required. A personal cricket bat is useful, but not essential. Otherwise, just comfortable sports gear and some energy is all you need!
FOR HARD BALL PLAYERS (Year 5 and above)
For hygiene reasons we recommend that each child should use their own box.
Protection is only afforded by the box if the player is also wearing suitable underwear.
Boxer shorts are not suitable in this respect as they do not retain the box appropriately.
Parents / guardians must ensure that suitable underwear is worn otherwise the child will be unable to participate in activities with a hard ball.
Here is what you need… HELMET, GLOVES, THIGH PAD, “BOX” & LEG PADS.
Part of running an active Colts section is the need for PARENTS to assist with coaching, officiating, team management, etc.
Please speak to Laurie if you would like to get involved with helping the Colts.
We are based at Barnes Sports Club, 261 Lonsdale Road, home of Barnes Cricket
