Club Survey

Our bi-annual Club Survey across, Junior Blasters, Girls and Juniors is underway. Every registered player should have received a link to Survey Monkey so if you haven’t responded yet then give it a go and help us to make a better Club.

We run these Surveys every 2 years with Seniors being held last season. This is an anonymous Survey that is a catalyst for change.

Already it has resulted in a rewrite of our ‘Participation over Results’ for Juniors, our successful efforts to introduce Pathways cricket to the U8s with the introduction of Master Blasters, ramped up communication, and the move towards greater diversity across the Club.
