Covers Roster 2012/13
For the past two seasons, we have used a new 'covers roster', which involved one TEAM being responsible for EVERY ground for EVERY day during the week on which they are rostered. That means the team is responsible for putting covers down on Chatswood, Beauchamp and Killara Oval. After another successful season, this is here to stay.
There will be SIX different groups. 1st Grade through to Colts. Each group will have 4 weeks during the season for which they are responsible. Coasties have some Thursday responsibilities during the season.
The roster has been designed to minimise the chance that a player, moving between grades, may have to complete consecutive covers duties. Due to the spread of home & away games this year, it has not been possible to spread the grades out as evenly as it has in the past two years. Whilst every team has 4 weeks of duties, 4th Grade completes most of their duties before Christmas, whilst 3rd Grade has most of their duties at the end of the season.

It is a requirement by SCA (Sydney Cricket Assoc.) that covers MUST be put down the night before a grade match, if not penalties apply (e.g. loss of points for the round). YOU don't want to be responsible for the club losing points and your club mates not getting on the ground on the weekend.
In addition the Club may require that covers be laid additional nights before a match in order that you and other players can play. You will be advised by your captain when covers are to be laid.
It is important that they are laid in the following sequence and securely so they can withstand wind and rain.
NO SPIKES are to be worn when laying or removing covers.
Remember ' folding the covers neatly onto the trolley makes it easier to roll the trolley and for next time!
