Junior Heat Clinics Go Regional

04 December 2018

The Brisbane Heat's Junior Heat Clinics will make a return to regional Queensland in January, with the club today announcing that sessions in Chinchilla, Roma, Goondiwindi and Warwick will be free of charge to allow aspiring cricketers in drought-affected communities the opportunity to attend.

This is the third year that the Junior Heat Clinics have been available to fans in regional Queensland, with the tour also featuring legs in Brisbane and Toowoomba.  

Attendees of the regional Junior Heat Clinics will receive expert coaching from former Queensland Bulls mentors Terry Oliver and Vic Williams, with the sessions open to girls and boys aged 7-14 of all cricketing abilities.  

Brisbane Heat General Manager Andrew McShea said: 

“There are obviously a lot of people doing it tough across Queensland, so we hope the small gesture of making the regional clinics free will allow more fans to attend and will put a smile on a few more faces. 

“The Heat are committed to ensuring fans in regional Queensland receive the same experiences as those in Brisbane, and the Junior Heat Clinics make up a vital part of our strategy to do this.

"This year our players have already visited Wide Bay, North Queensland and South-West Queensland as part of our annual Regional Tour, and throughout the WBBL and BBL seasons we are bringing matches to Mackay, Cairns and the Gold Coast. By exposing more fans to the Brisbane Heat we are creating a great platform to continue cricket's growth across the state."

The regional Junior Heat Clinics will commence in early January, with registrations open through Play Cricket.
