Good evening Nuna Junior families,
Cricket Victoria & BHRDCA are still planning for a mid-November start to the season, particularly with the encouraging news from the State Government this week. We are working with local council to ensure that we can return to training in a COVID-safe way (see attached letter).
General BHRDCA Updates:
- The season is still on target to commence on Friday 13th November
- We have graded all the current nominated teams and I will be forwarding these later this week
- Current Fixtures will be completed by Sunday November 8th

Woolworth Junior Blasters
Daniel and Claire will get a message out to Blasters families with more information on planning for the Blasters Program. At this stage, Cricket Victoria and the Association are recommending an early 2021 start date for the formal 8-week program. Nuna intends to run a couple of ‘come and try’ sessions on two Friday nights before Christmas (early December), but this will be confirmed closer to the date. Blasters families can take advantage of the new Cricket Blast program – “Anywhere Blast”. This free online program is a great way for Blasters to begin their cricketing journey before transitioning to face to face Club based programs when restrictions allow. Follow the link here.
Call for players
We still need a few extra players for our Stage 1 Girls team on a Wednesday evening. We are also looking for a few extra U16 players for Friday night. If you know of anyone interested please let me know ASAP.
COVID safe plan
Rob Nash has been working hard along with the committee to ensure that we are ready for a COVID safe return to training and playing. The latest is that we are waiting for our COVID plan to be approved by council and our seasonal permit to be granted.
**We encourage all parents to complete the following online infection control training module (takes about 20mins to complete) to ensure that our Nuna community are well-prepared as "we are all in this together": https://www.health.gov.au/resources/apps-and-tools/covid-19-infection-control-training.
More information will be circulated before the start of training next week about the procedure for checking in to Mahoneys Reserve for training and games. In the meantime, I encourage you to download the free 1Breadcrumb app (see screenshot)
on your smartphone. We are assured that all data is stored securely and the platform is supported by the Association.
