Young Leaders in Cricket Programme

February 9, 2022

With another season fast approaching, we all know the importance of volunteers. We would like introduce you to the Young Leaders programme which is aimed at getting 14–16 yrs involved in volunteering in cricket at your club.

Following completion of the course, we will work with the young leaders, their parents / guardians and respective club and / or school to highlight and provide volunteer opportunities that benefit all concerned.

It is planned that the course modules delivered by qualified respective tutors will take place during the school holidays (Easter and May half-term), subject to venue and tutor availability. Our intention is to run more than one course (max 14 attendees), with locations to be guided by expressions of interest detailed below.

There is a subscription of £40 to join the programme per participant to cover the cost of the course delivery and administration. 

An online call has been setup for Thursday 17th February 7pm for anyone interested in the programme which will be open to parents/participants. (Please Note: The online link will be provided to those who sign-up via the expression of interest form at the bottom of the email)

 If any 14-16yrs person, along with their parent / guardian wishes to express an interest in the programme, please complete the form via the link below;
