2022 Winter Training Details and the use of ‘Spond’
2022 Dollar Winter Training
We are now able to confirm the full details of the upcoming 2022 winter training. After missing last year’s off-season practice, we will be returning to Dollar academy once more in an effort to blow away the winter cobwebs hone our cricketing skills before the season begins in April.
Unlike previous years, 2022’s winter training will be taking place on a Saturday and will run from 12 February to 26 March (inclusive). Senior training is scheduled for 2-4pm, while J2 and J3 training will take place 4-6pm.
- Venue: Dollar Academy
- Dates: 12/2/22 to 26/3/22
- Time: 2-4pm (senior); 4-6pm (J2 and J3)
New for 2022 will be the use of ‘Spond’, a tool for the organising of sports teams, to assist senior team selection and help with the organising of training and other club events. Those who have been involved with the juniors over the last year will know all about Spond, as it has been successfully utilised by the junior section to help with their planning and organisation and has also greatly improved communication within the section.
Spond will enable us to send notifications of upcoming fixtures, training sessions and club events directly to players and will allow each player to confirm their availability. This will be done either through the app or via e-mail or SMS. We are hoping that not only will this allow us to improve team selection and the organisation of training, but will also benefit communication within the club and ensure that players are kept fully informed of upcoming events.
We will be trialling the use of Spond at the upcoming winter training, so keep an eye out for the notifications and please make every effort to respond!
More information about Spond can be found at their website.
