U13/U15 Cricket Clubs are invited to Participate in Abu Asvat Memorial Junior Cricket tournament.
The annual Abu Asvat Memorial Junior Cricket Tournament is an official event of the Central Gauteng Lions, taking place on 7th and 8th September 2019 at the Lenasia Extension 6 Sports Complex. Your club is invited to apply for participation in this prestigious event by sending one Under 13 team and one Under 15 team or either to participate in the tournament.
Please note that this prestigious tournament promotes performance excellence and values required to build our nation. The values are: self-respect, respect for each other as persons, respect for the tournament and its officials as well as respect for officials of your club. The Institute religiously subscribes to the principle of anti-racism; in that we are opposed to any form of racism in our society and society at large. In this regard we consistently advocate the breakdown of artificial and stereotype racial barriers. We strongly believe that we all have to selflessly support and contribute towards the growth and development of the sport and the country by actively participating in the sport (in this particular instance) at all levels and not wait for ‘hand-outs’. In your area and surrounding communities we encourage you to support initiatives to uplift and secure the community. The Institute requests you and your club members to acquire these values by participating in this tournament and give practical expression to these values especially at this tournament. At this tournament you are required to abide by the rules and regulations governing this tournament (the rules are in the annual brochure). You will respectfully oblige to assist the organisers when called upon to do so. To protect the environment you will not litter the venue and waste foodstuff. These are some of the values you are required to subscribe to in order to participate in this tournament.
Coaches are urged to train and prepare their teams to perform optimally at the tournament to improve the standard of play at the tournament. CGL coaches and selectors will look out for talented players with individual commitment and support from their teams.
Please confirm your acceptance of this invitation with its conditions, with Sherina Desai or Eugene at the Central Gauteng Lions. Please submit your team lists of 13 players and one manager to Eugene or Sherina as well as your coaching and training schedule.
