PLAI - Giving back to Cricket Clubs

For the next couple of months, I've been authorised to put AU $300 back into the club should you feel now is the right time to consider a partnership with PLAI.

As a quick revisit... PLAI is subscription free, enabling you to simplify your day to day running of the club by consolidating all key functions into one place. This includes the management of player availability, team selections, player communications, collecting of fees and so much more.

Growing up and playing country cricket in regional Victoria I understood the importance of building communities and having kids and parents be involved at the club level. As a community coach and volunteer in more recent years, I also recognise that clubs need to grow & generate new revenue to keep up with the rising costs.

The Foundation of Goodness was established in 1999 and has worked extensively to develop a one of a kind holistic rural community development model over the past 25 years, completing humanitarian initiatives to the value of USD 24 million. In 2023 alone, despite struggles brought on by the Sri Lankan Economic Crisis, the Foundation of Goodness was able to deliver a wide range of programmes to over 135,000 beneficiaries from 854 villages across Sri Lanka, free of charge, via our 10 empowerment divisions: Business Skills and Enterprise, Women’s Empowerment, Special Needs, Language and Arts, Sports Development, Medical, Dental and Psychosocial Support, Children and Youth Development, Environment and Water, Rural Welfare & Development and Village Heartbeat Empowerment Centres. The Foundation of Goodness also provides opportunities for volunteerism and has established its own Sustainable Income Generation avenues.

In addition to its flagship venue and project headquarters, the OYOB Centre of Excellence and Sports Academy in Seenigama, the Foundation of Goodness has also branched out to offer its key courses and resources to distant rural villages via Village Heartbeat Empowerment Centres. These centres strive to empower disadvantaged communities so that they may have equal opportunities to excel in life. As the nerve centre of the village, the Village Heartbeat concept works to give underprivileged villagers access to skills that will enable them to develop to their full potential and offer courses in areas such as IT, children’s educational classes, women’s empowerment, life values and life skills development.

The Foundation of Goodness has already established 19 Village Heartbeat Empowerment Centres across the island; Ahangama (Galle District), Jayanthipura (Polonnaruwa District), China Bay (Trincomalee District), Mahiyangana (Badulla District), Maskeliya (Nuwara Eliya District), Ragala (Nuwara Eliya District), Kothmalae (Nuwara Eliya District) , Hatton (Nuwara Eliya District), Mathagal (Jaffna District), Pallai (Kilinochchi District), Oddusuddan (Mullaitivu District), Puthiyanagar (Mullaitivu District), Eravur (Batticaloa District), Thirukkovil (Ampara District), Dambulla (Matale District), Bandarawela (Badulla District, Central Region), Hingurukaduwa (Monaragala District), Udumulla (Galle Districtand Rathgama (Galle District) with plans currently underway to construct more Centres.

My daughter is 14 and quite a talented young cricketer but decided not to play this season as she was inspired by the Matilda’s and wants to play Football.
I spoke to a couple of the committee members in our local competition, and they said for the first time in a couple of seasons their numbers are down in girl’s cricket.
I wonder if other competitions and clubs are experiencing the same.

Utilising Technology and Apps to Streamline Fundraising in Your Sports Club

Fundraising plays a pivotal role in the operation of sports clubs. It provides the necessary financial support for equipment purchases, facility upgrades, travel expenses, and other essential costs that keep the club running smoothly. Without successful fundraising, many clubs would struggle to meet their operational needs and achieve their objectives.

However, traditional fundraising methods have their fair share of challenges. These may include time-intensive planning and execution, limited reach, difficulties in tracking donations, and challenges in engaging potential donors. Furthermore, traditional methods such as sponsorship drives, bake sales, and charity matches often require significant manpower and resources to manage.
