Blagdon Cricket Club wish to appoint a Youth Coordinator on a voluntary basis who will be responsible for coordinating all junior cricket activities, starting in the 2020 season.

Blagdon’s Youth Section is strong and with an enviable reputation offering cricket to some 50 plus children.

We field at least three teams each season covering, U11s, U13s and U15s who all compete in the North Somerset Youth Cricket League

Over the years we’ve had consistent representation at the various levels of the SCB player pathway. The Club has also introduced an All Stars Cricket Programme in 2019 providing children aged five to eight with a great first experience in cricket.

The key objective of the role will be to oversee, develop and deliver a Youth Coaching Programme, assist with the transition of youth players into senior cricket and help to develop coaches from within our current membership.

Ideally the person concerned would be an ECB qualified coach however the Club will consider those willing to work towards the qualification and will provide financial support to meet the cost of the ECB courses.

The person will be responsible for overseeing the organisation of activities such as junior nets, week night training, junior matches and social events.

The role will also include being the main contact point for juniors and their parents, working closely with the junior cricket coaches and developing the communication and promotion of junior cricket in the local community.

Preference will be given to a candidate that wishes to integrate wholeheartedly into the life of our friendly and ambitious club.
