Use of practice nets

The club net facility at Fehlberg Park is a shared resource and available to Souths Junior Cricket Coaching staff of Stage 2 and Stage 3 and their players on training days from 5 pm to 6 pm. On these days, other users of these facilities will vacate the nets by 5 pm. This gives coaches 30 minutes to warm up players and run through some alternative drills prior to using the net facility. Being a shared and limited resource, coaches are asked to roster their intended usage of these facilities with other coaching staff on the training day.

Protocols for safe use of these facilities are as follows:

  1. All players, coaches and parents entering and leaving the net area will do so only by the gate at the Eastern (away from clubhouse) end of the facility.
  2. All people entering the net facility must be suitably attired – no singlets, thongs or inappropriate footwear.
  3. The five nets at the Eastern end, away from the bowling machine are to be used by Junior players.
  4. All players are to wear helmets, genital protectors and pads when batting.
  5. Players conduct will be monitored and any misbehaving players will be ejected.
  6. All players and coaches are to be mindful of the obvious dangers associated with being within the net facility, particularly when senior players are practising, and we ask that, for safety reasons, any conversations that need to be conducted are conducted outside the confines of the net facility.

Your adherence with these rules is appreciated.
