  5. Please arrive at training as close as possible to your start time and avoid congestion
  6. All children playing hard ball cricket should bring their own ball and kit. This must not be shared
  7. Children playing soft ball should bring a bat, we recommend plastic for years 3 and 4.
  8. Children should also bring their own drinks and hand sanitiser
  9. The pavilion will not be open, at least for the first few weeks, but there will be access to the toilets for the children on a one-in/one-out basis. Toilets will be cleaned before each day’s training
