Key Points on becoming a member -

o Paying the subscriptions referred to below entitles both you and your child to become a member of the club for a year from 1 April 2024 to 31 March 2025. This entitles your child to the benefits outlined later in this Section.

o For efficiency we use Pitchero (accessible via the login button at top of our website and an app) for as much of our Club admin as possible e.g. registration, match availability and selection, payment of subs, comms.

Potential new members should email nmcc.colts@gmail.com giving the name and email address they want on their account, plus their child/children’s name(s) and date(s) of birth. After that -
If there are spaces available, we will create an account in the parent’s name to which their child/children will be linked. The parent must accept the invite to join, create a password, and then complete the registration details for their child/children.

BURSARIES –

We don’t want the payment of subs to be a barrier to any children being a member of North Midd. For this reason, the Club operates a bursary scheme. Any families wishing to apply for bursaries towards subs should contact nmcc.colts@gmail.com or Mary Cracknell, our Club Safeguarding Officer (Mary.Duffy@guidedogs.org.uk) for more information. Any enquires will be treated in confidence.

Paying the subscriptions referred to above entitles you and your child to membership of the club for a year. Benefits of membership are as follows: –

O Attendance at our outdoor summer training programme for your child.
o Playing in outdoor and winter indoor matches when selected for your child - there are no match fees for Junior outdoor games (league, cup or friendlies). Match fees are normally charged for indoor matches to cover indoor league entry fees and hall hire.
o Use of our nets for you and your child when available and subject to any published net guidelines and displayed net rules.
o Invitations to Juniors’ Day and other social events during the Season.
o Priority booking for our indoor winter training programmes for your child. Our bursary scheme is again available to help if those are a barrier to any child’s participation.

DONATIONS -

The Club is always looking to improve the coaching, practice and playing facilities we can offer to Juniors. We also need to fund our bursary scheme.
Any donations (however small) will be most welcome. Donations (including gift aid notifications) can be made via Pitchero (using shopping trolley icon in app or via Shop link on website..

We also welcome donations of good quality second-hand kit and cricket equipment.
