Cheshire Cricket Board - Get the Game On Juniors
Welcome to Get the Game On Juniors – an exciting new (May 2021) initiative from Cheshire Cricket Board aimed at providing additional friendly fixtures for our affiliated clubs. GTGO aims to complement (and not compete with) the existing junior league structures around the County and ensure children of all abilities can enjoy match-play experiences at an age and stage appropriate level.
Who is it for?
· Cheshire affiliated clubs with a recognised junior section (or junior members)
· Clubs looking for fixtures for boys’ (or mixed sex) teams from U7 to U18
· NB – there is a separate ‘girls only’ group – contact Ray Bell for more details
How does it work?
· Junior coordinators post their fixture requirements in the GTGO Juniors WhatsApp group
· Clubs agree a date, time and match format to suit their needs and ‘Get the Game On’
· Games are recorded on play-cricket to track participation levels throughout the summer
How do we get involved?
Please contact CCB Clubs and Participation Manager Gareth Moorhouse with the following details:
· Name of club
· Junior Contact
· Mobile telephone number
· Email address (if not on WhatsApp)
Get The Game On will run throughout the summer with no deadline to join. Clubs can use the facility to arrange the odd match, or to book multiple fixtures over several months. Further details (including reminders of Covid regs) will be sent to coordinators upon receipt of their contact details.
Please note, the priority for clubs should be to arrange and fulfil all league and cup fixtures first, using GTGO to provide additional playing opportunities for juniors members as and when required.
