The team has just finished its 3rd season. Out of the 6 competitions it has participated in, it has played in 5 Grand Finals and won 4 of them. The age range is between 16 and about 28 and is a diverse group made up of metro and country players and Non-Aboriginal and Aboriginal players. It is part of an overall bigger club that has 4 male teams.
Value to the Community
It has provided a playing pathway for Aboriginal players, a few of which has represented WA in the National Indigenous Championships and the WA Country XI. Players travel from Geraldton and Tammin to participate. Several of the girls attend University in their studies and one of the players is in her last year of a phd in Sport Science. There is also a player doing a trade and others that are graduates, undergraduates and one works in manufacturing. Originally the team was set up from players who had dropped out of the game and this was a fun environment where they started enjoying cricket again. Specialist Coaching is provided.
Why the funds are needed
Many of the Aboriginal players and full time students struggle to be able to pay for things like club clothing and equipment. the club can purchase things like a team kit and pay for ground hire and balls and umpires but individual items some players struggle that are on very small incomes.
