Player Disciplinary Policy

Cricket is a team-orientated sport, with self- discipline being a major component.

To ensure that our prime objective of ensuring every child participating receives as much tutelage & game time as possible throughout the season, the awareness of the player disciplinary policy is of paramount importance to both parents and children.
This policy is applicable to any physical confrontation (regardless of who was the instigator or retaliator) either at training or during matches between players of either opposing or same teams at the coach’s discretion.
