As many of you know, the SNASY Institute was created last year working with the Austria Cricket Association to provide a focus for the development of youth and women’s cricket in Austria. This was built on an idea that had been discussed for a number of years - that a successful cricketing future in Austria depends on a successful junior and youth program.
Following agreement at the ACA – ÖCV AGM, SNASY plans to start training on 25th April at the Austria Cricket Stadium, Markomannenstrasse. This follows a successful first year with full international matches / tours / over 40 coaching sessions and 4000 coaching hours / not to mention a hundred, 2 fifties and a 5 for… (A fuller summary of last year and plans for this year as presented at the AGM will be circulated and published shortly.)
All the players who registered, trainined and played last year, will be invited to attend, but we are also keen to welcome any more NEW players – from 5 years old, boys and girls!
As last year, training will be every Saturday with two age/experience groups – from 10:00 to 13:00, 5 to 13 years old/beginners/intermediates and from 13:00 – 17:00, 13 – 19 years/advanced. In July and prior to specific international matches there will be additional sessions.
Please also remind and encourage all those who came last year to come on the 25th.
Please send the following data -

We need the support of coaches from all clubs in order to make this program work for the junior/youth/women players and so we encourage you please to speak to your players/member/past players/supporters to see if they can help at all with this opportunity. Please let us know if you or any of your members are interested in helping in any way – we don’t just need coaches.
We look forward to hearing from you and to developing together.
Best Cricketing Wishes,
Matt and Walter
