We are aware of the challenges clubs are facing at this current time, especially regarding junior cricket. We would like to support clubs by offering our Community Coaches to help clubs give as many players as possible the opportunity to play cricket this summer. The coaches will also be able to support club coaches as well.

We would like to offer clubs the following:

  • One coach for one afternoon/evening (approx. 3pm – 8pm) per week for three weeks
  • Either w/c 20th July – w/c 3rd August or w/c 10th August – w/c 24th August

The coach will be available for the club to deploy as needed (the club and coach will plan and organise this in advance), and can include any of the following:

  • Small group coaching
  • Net coaching
  • Coaching women’s and/or girls’ section
  • Supporting junior training/practise
  • Coach mentoring and support

To ensure coaches and players stay as safe as possible we would ask clubs and players to provide all equipment for the coach to use. This would include cones, balls and stumps for clubs and playing equipment for players. The coaches will bring with them hand sanitiser and anti-bacterial wipes to clean any equipment between sessions.

If you are interested in this support please follow the link below to complete the application form. The deadline for applications is midnight on Tuesday 14th July.

Coach Support Application Form

We expect demand for our coaches to be greater than our potential to deliver so please be aware that we are unlikely to be able to fulfil all requests. We apologise in advance to those we are unable to support at this time.

If you have any questions or would like to know more please email scott.chappell@somersetcricketboard.org.
