The dates for the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club’s 2020/21 pre-season training have been announced, and it all begins Sunday the 13th September from 10:00am!
You can see the dates and times of each session below, with both Sunday morning and Wednesday afternoon session again marking the first pattern of pre-season dates each week.
We will then move into our regular Tuesday and Thursday afternoon training sessions on Tuesday the 6th October, when we will have the clubhouse and bar back open and ready for what promises to be a massive season in the wake of the COVID-19 virus.
Our season start date for our two-day grades has been confirmed, with Saturday the 17th October serving as the first day of the season. Prior to that, we will be having our Season Launch on the Thursday, 15th October as we have done in previous years.
What’s different this season is that we will also be having a massive dinner at the clubhouse to celebrate the season just gone, with this windup of sorts to be announced on our website in the coming weeks. This date is still a work in progress, so be sure to stay tuned!
The one-day grades at this stage are expected to commence two weeks later on Saturday the 31st of October with the SMCA announcing a tentative date due to the AFL Grand Final. As is the case with other years, a bye for the AFL Grand Final match is expected, however this is subject to change due to the already shortened season creating issues with fixturing.
As such, October 31st is not set in stone but is the best possible date for the commencement of our one-day competitions at this time.
Before then though, we will have a series of crucial pre-season training sessions with our Club Coach Peter Waite to help get everyone prepared for the incredible (and different!) season ahead.
