Cornwall Cricket will again be involved with the Young Leaders in Cricket Programme in 2022.

The purpose of the programme is to give young people between the ages of 14 and 16 the opportunity to acquire new skills and develop leadership skills that will allow them to volunteer within their cricket club and/or school.

Training given is made up of five modules:

  • Activator Coaching
  • Umpiring and Scoring
  • Grounds Keeping
  • First Aid
  • Fundraising

In addition to developing new skills, the benefits to the Young Leader include being a role model to younger members of their club, volunteering qualifies for the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme and the programme can be used in a University Personal Statement and/or CV.

Cornwall Cricket is working in partnership with Cricket Young Leaders, organisers, to provide volunteer opportunities for the young leaders. If you have any projects or initiatives that you are involved with which require any external help, please get in touch as there could be additional support available.

If your son or daughter is interested in this exciting opportunity and would like to hear first-hand how others have benefited in the past, please click here to book onto a ‘Enthuse’ presentation evening to find out what exactly the programme is all about.
