    Association And Club Covid 19 Plan

    Cricket in a pandemic is a privilege not a right. As a result of COVID-19, cricket this season will look different to any other season.

    Whilst the game we all love will proceed when allowed under State Government restrictions, Associations and Clubs need to take numerous steps for training sessions and matches to ensure we comply with State Government protocols. These protocols are designed to minimise the chances of COVID-19 spreading and to maximise the chances of cricket being able to get through the season.

    Having a quality COVID-19 Plan will help Associations and Clubs meet these challenges. Cricket Victoria encourage all Clubs and Associations to use the editable COVID-19 Plan (Version 1). This Plan will continue to be updated as more information comes from State Government so we encourage Associations and Clubs to regularly check information via Cricket Victoria, DHHS and Sport and Recreation Victoria for the latest advice. Further versions will be released as a result of key new information.

    To assist Clubs and volunteers in their awareness of what they are committing to in the Plan, Cricket Victoria will be hosting webinars on:
    Thursday 24 September 12pm-1pm; or
    Thursday 24 September 7.30pm-8.30pm
    Here is the link to register

    Both of these sessions will have the same content so you can choose your preferred date and time.

  • Season 2020/2021

    Update From Cricket Southern Bayside

    The current ‘covid-19’ environment has made planning for the current season challenging. The Competition Advisory Group has, and will continue to plan for numerous different scenarios and understand that it is vital to remain flexible in terms of our thinking on how the season will unfold. Central to our thinking has been to ensure that as much cricket as possible can be played whilst ensuring that the integrity of the competition remains intact. With that in mind we can announce that the 2020/21 CSB Men’s Turf Competition will be a One Day Competition (for all grades including Saturday and Sunday competitions). At this stage a planned start date of 7th November 2020 is anticipated. That start date is of course dependant on a number of factors which will ultimately determine if that date is achievable. Numerous contingencies (start dates) have been planned for and will allow us to be adaptable in our changing environment including reformatted the fixture if and when required.
    In the coming weeks the Competition Advisory Group will be looking at fixturing, playing conditions, working with the umpires in preparing for the coming season, working through player points and various other necessary tasks. It is my intention to provide you all with regular updates from this point forward in my role as the CAG chairman.
