Young Leaders in Cricket Course – Leadership & Volunteering (14-16 Age Group)

20th January 2022

Volunteers are the heartbeat of recreational cricket and we know how important they are for cricket clubs delivering programmes and remaining sustainable. Norfolk Cricket Board are looking to partner up with a programme called Young Leaders in Cricket which is aimed at getting 14–16-year-olds involved in a Leadership and Volunteering programme.

Following completion of the course, we hope that the players will actively volunteer at their club once the programme has finished. (“A comprehensive and engaging programme made up of 5 modules which embody leadership and associated life skills”)

It is planned that the course modules will take place during the school holidays (Easter and June half-term). The course will be delivered by accredited trainers the ECB/ACO/CGA/and a first aid training provider. There is a subscription of £40 to join the programme per participant to cover the cost of the course delivery and administration, all professional time to deliver the programme is donated voluntarily.

We would be very grateful if you could share this opportunity to any 14-16 year old at your club who you feel may be interested in this opportunity.

  • A second online call has been setup for Wednesday 2nd February at 7pm for anyone interested in the programme which will be open to parents/participants. (Link to be provided to those who sign-up via the expression of interest form at the bottom of the email)
