The 2019/20 season is almost upon us! Mt Clear CC welcomes all our cricketing juniors and families, new and returning, to the new season.
With plenty of activity and changes during the off season, our 2019/20 season is shaping up to be super exciting and jam packed full of cricket and family events. This season Mountie has a full pathway of cricket on offer for juniors who want to learn the game, develop their skills and play competitive and non-competitive cricket.
Our expanded program (please see further details below) includes Junior and Master Blasters, Stage 1 Girls and Boys, Stage 2 Girls and U/13, U/15 and U/17 teams. Mountie is also exploring with AAA Sports (Kellie Tait) on how to link in with All Abilities cricket after Christmas.
Our exciting pathway provides connection into Ballarat’s junior representative cricket and to Mt Clear Senior cricket and beyond.
Mountie is blessed with a terrific team of junior coaches who coach, mentor and guide all our junior players to have fun, learn the game and develop their skills. PLAY THE GAME, SCORE RUNS, TAKE WICKETS and CATCHES, HAVE FUN and ENJOY THE MOMENT!

Helping Our Coaches - Junior Team Assistants
Mountie has a wonderful history of parents/friends supporting our coaches particularly on Game Day. This season each coach will be seeking assistance in the form of a Team Manager and Team Scorer. These roles will allow the coaches to continue to work with players during the match.
The Junior coaching group are finalising simple Role Cards to ‘Myth Bust’ this involvement. These roles are designed to be fun and easy. The Role Cards will be circulated with the next newsletter – and remember you can share a role with someone else.
Please give your Coach or Junior Co-ordinator a call for more information or to take on a role. Grateful for your help!

The Mountie Junior Committee is again seeking interest from parents and friends for the 2019/20 season. The purpose of the Committee is to help shape our Junior Cricket program through good decision making. This comes from involving people who are part of our Club and have an interest in continuously improving cricket opportunities for our kids.
Our Committee is very much ‘can do’. The committee comprises all coaches, Junior Co-ordinator and three formal positions with additional membership most welcome. These roles are designed to be very rewarding and have a low volume of work.
Role Cards being finalised and will be circulated with the next newsletter.
These roles come with every support. Please contact Steve Young (0439 658219) if you would like more info or are interested in a role.

Staying on the Ball at Mountie Cricket
There a several ways to stay in touch and stay informed about all the great things happening in and around the club, including:
Pathways for Fun & Cricket
With lots of levels of cricket to choose from, we understand the challenges, especially deciding for younger kids who haven’t played before. Attached is a start of a pack of information that Mountie is putting together to help you make an informed decision about which is the best playing level. We will add to this over coming weeks. Hopefully this will make decisions a bit easier.
If you are unsure please yell out. You will soon see new posters in local schools, businesses and online promoting the Mountie junior cricket pathway. If you would like to display or circulate these amongst your network please drop an email to MountieJuniorCricket@gmail.com. All resources will also become available on the Mt Clear web. If you have friends who are interested please put them in touch through a coach, Junior Co-ordinator or give them the email address.
