Vic Hodge - reappointed Moonee Valley coach for the 2012/13 season.A word from our coach: Vic Hodge sets the standard on training

The season start is almost upon us, and I'm yet to see quite a number of players at training. While I appreciate that the footy finals are well under way, the cricket is the here and now.
I appreciate that we have suffered from inclement weather, but we must make up for lost time.
Training and nets are held on both Tuesday and Thursday every week from 4.30pm, and will continue throughout the season - switching back to 5.30 when Daylight Saving commences.
As a rule I expect everyone at training for each session. If for any reason you cannot attend please be sure to call, text or email me before 2pm on the day.
Please ensure that for all training sessions:
*Club training clothing is worn at all times - otherwise white shirt, dark pants/shorts.
*Appropriate footwear for nets/ground fielding.
*Helmets are mandatory and non-negotiable - no helmet, no batting.
*Late attendance will be subject to forfeits and only restricts your game.
If there are any doubts or concerns regarding weather conditions, then text, call or email myself on 0438 803 084, President Charlie Walker on 0409 237 543 or Vice President Simon Thornton on 0417 570 779 by 3.30pm. There will also be an update posted on this website by 3.30pm if a decision is made to cancel training due to inclement weather.
