Clifton Hill Spirit and Clifton Hill Stars are Clifton Hill Cricket Club's two teams for girls aged 10-15 years. They are founding members of the ground breaking Eastern Cricket Association's Anna Lanning Shield. The teams first started in 2014-15 and have just concluded their second season. There are about 25 regular players between the two teams, which play weekly during the season against teams from Box Hill, Balwyn, Bulleen, Canterbury and elsewhere.
Value to the Community
Clifton Hill Cricket Club is a local community club and we are determined to serve the whole community. While Australia boasts some of the best female cricketers in the world, cricket is still a very male dominated sport. Clifton Hill Cricket Club is committed to encouraging female participation in our club and in the sport. As a beginning, we want to provide opportunities for girls to learn and enjoy the game. Ultimately we would like to be able to provide a pathway for women to play at adult and representative level.
Why the funds are needed
We will use any funds provided to purchase playing and training equipment and uniforms for the girls to use in the 2016-17 season. Cricket can be an expensive sport to play if kids need to buy their own equipment. This is particularly true for the girls who, while only 12, 13 or 14, may already be adult sized and need full adult sized equipment. We also like to provide good quality uniforms that make the girls feel like they are an integral part of the club.
