Wet Weather Policy
Nobody likes rain in the cricket season,
but it’s a reality that one or two Sundays and/or matches will be affected by
the weather. Actonians Cricket Club encourages coaches, managers, players and
parents to ‘get the game on’ however, when it is wet or has been raining the
focus is on player safety. As much as we all want to get out on the field, player
safety in paramount.
Sunday morning training
The Age Group Leads and Coaches are the
judges of whether conditions are fit to train. When it is raining or has rained
heavily overnight we will get down the club as soon as possible on Sunday morning
and will update parents through the website and through Age Group Leads
WhatsApp groups as to the situation.
We will give as much time as possible to
get the game on. When we are away we are at the mercy of the opposition as to
the status of the game. When we are hosting the game we must also be mindful of
the opposition travelling. All Age Group Leads/Match Managers will be in
contact with their opposite numbers on the day and will update everyone as soon
as they can – assume the game is on unless you hear otherwise. In call
cases player safety is our priority and we will use Age Group Leads WhatsApp
groups to let everyone know what the situation is.
8 sessions are planned and rest assured 8
sessions will be delivered, if a session is cancelled due to weather then it
will just roll over to the next week's session.
