1st Febuary 2022

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

Your child has indicated an interest in playing cricket for TIS this term. Please read all details carefully and complete the online registration and payment  BY 5pm Wednesday 9th Febuary. 

COACHES WANTED
IMPORTANT:  All of our teams will need parents to share the managing of the team on Saturday mornings.  If this also extends to a week day practice that would be fantastic as staff cannot guarantee time to do this.

Please note that if you are keen to coach and have practice onsite, you must be fully vaccinated.

Without the help of parents on Saturday morning to score or co-ordinate we will be unable to enter these teams.  A lot of learners will have their own gear, but a team bag will be provided for each team.  TIS has a policy of letting all cricketers have a go at batting and/or bowling if they are keen.  Parent/Coaches need to be aware of this.

Any parents keen please let me know ASAP.  A roster system could work that you do one weekend each or share with another parent.  

 If we do not have enough female players to form a girls’ team then these players will be placed in mixed teams.

CODE OF CONDUCT
Players and parents of all TIS sports will be asked to agree to our 2022 sports code of conduct. Please read and discuss with your child and your extended family.  As proud parents and New Zealanders we love our sports and are keen for our students to do the best they can. Click here to view the Sports 2022 code of conduct.

The HBCA website contains information around cancellations and ground closures.  Coaches will try their best to let teams know - but please use the HBCA website for up to date information.

GAMES and COMPETITION
Games start Saturday 19th Febuary to Saturday 26th March 2022. The draw will be up on the website by Thursday afternoon each week at the latest. Team lists including stand-downs and the draw will be placed in the hall window each Wednesday /Thursday. Any child who knows they will be away needs to let their coach/manager know in advance.  With more than one team - stand downs will rotate through the teams, and players may be asked to cover another team if they are short.

The 1st and 2nd XI are entered in the Intermediate Inter City A Grade Competition - firsts in the upper tier and seconds in the lower tier of this competition.  We then enter our teams in the Saturday morning Intermediate B Division. 

Grades for Term one:

Intermediate School Cricket – Hard ball

  • Division 1 & 2 – T25 Smash, 9 a side, 25 overs per innings. 8:45am to 12pm
  • Division 3 – T20 Blast, 9 a side, 20 overs per innings. 9am to 11:15am
  • A cancellation mobile texting service will be used this term and cancellations will be posted on our Facebook page.

FEES
All fees of $32 are to be paid with your online registration. As sport is considered an extra-curricular activity, TIS has a ‘no pay, no play’ policy. 

GEAR
All players will be issued with a school sports top for cricket. Listen for the intercom message to come and collect a top late in the second week of school.

Students will require: red school cap, white long cricket pants and a box for boys. Each team will have a gear bag that will be issued to the coach/managers.  Students in the 1st XI must have their own gear – this includes: bat, helmet, gloves and a thigh pad.
