The BHRDCA has secured a $5000.00 grant from Cricket Victoria to continue developing junior female cricket within the association. Hot on the heels of winning the u/12 VMCU Claudia Fatone shield in January, this will assist in continuing the development of those players and providing opportunities for them. In addition , ALL clubs are requested to have female participation in their thoughts as they plan for the upcoming junior season.
This area is a big push from both Cricket Victoria and Cricket Australia with the Big Bash season to have female teams for each franchise this season and the profile of female cricket continuing to grow. Clubs will be able to work with the association as part of this grant to attract players and help with equipment, clothing, training and other resources to develop individuals and teams.
More information can be sought from the Committee of Management and a huge thanks to Ross Chambers who did the leg work to secure this.
