The juniors are coached and managed by a team of volunteers who have attended ECB training courses, adhere to the ECB safe hands policy and are CDBS checked. We also rely on the help of parents to help on match days with scoring and umpiring. If you can help please let us or your manager know.

ECB Clubmark documents are available on the club noticeboard or on The Clubmark Policies and Documents page – Read More

Please note that for young players under 18 years of age, Horsham Cricket Club will adhere to the ECB’s instructions on helmets.
