Playing Fees this season

       City held another very well attended meeting last night (Friday), at that meeting a number of issues were discussed, one of them being the playing fees for this coming season. From this season there is an insurance levee placed on all players from New South Wales Cricket. Our club's contribution to NSW Cricket is $480 plus the general increase in prices there in a large increase of cost for running the club.

       Kathy Lawrence as our treasurer has done a terrific job in requiring only a slight increase in fees this season.
      This season fees Senior $260,                            Student$190,                                                            
                              4th Grade Senior $190,             4th Grade Student $165.
      Our registration morning is Sunday the 26th August, 9.30 am at Riverside 2 practice cricket nets before the start of training. No player will be able to take the field for City until they have filled out a Registration form and paid the minimum amount of $65.
      All new players to the club will receive a City United club shirt once they have paid their fees.
     All playing members, once you have paid your fees you will receive a City United training singlet.
     All playing members, if you have paid your fees in full before our Christmas Party you will be in the draw for THREE that’s THREE chances of having half your fees refunded back to you.
     Don't forget our first training session is Sunday the 19th August from 10am at the Riverside 2 cricket nets. With our Registration morning the following Sunday 26th commencing at 9.30am at Riverside 2 with training to follow.
