Cricket needs more volunteers

We want to inspire and develop the next generation of volunteers by supporting players aged 14 – 17 from our club network with the opportunity to develop key skills which they can use to help their clubs grow and flourish. That’s why the Somerset Cricket Foundation is working with Somerset Association of Cricket Officials (SACO) and Somerset CCC Pathway to deliver training to young volunteers in the club network.

There are four compulsory modules

  • Leadership
  • Activator Training
  • Umpiring & Scoring
  • Safeguarding

And two optional modules

  • First Aid
  • Groundskeeping

Rewards are earned on completion of volunteer hours!
