CRSA Batting Home Runs
2014 is off to a flying start as the Cooks River Sporting Alliance (CRSA) active presence in the local community continues to increase.
The Summer Hill Cricket Club ran school holiday clinics in mid-January and although there was a nominal fee for participants to join, the clinics were predominantly able to run thanks to the generous financial support provided by Canterbury Hurlstone Park RSL Club’s ClubGRANTS program.
With much needed sun shade relief for players, the Club’s CRSA initiative also purchased two marquees (as pictured) and fitted a side awning to a seven-seater van recently purchased by Canterbury Hurlstone Park RSL Club. These CRSA shelters, along with the van can be used at multiple clinics and sporting related events throughout the year and has saved the Cricket Club a significant amount of revenue.
This initiative is part of a broader strategy for the CRSA which came out of the recent forum attended by representatives from local schools and sporting groups. Running sporting programs in schools is becoming more and more difficult and the CRSA in conjunction with local sporting clubs can ease the burden and provide good value alternatives. There is an exciting deal more in the pipeline so stay tuned for future updates as 2014 progresses.
