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 DBS 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.
Volunteering – parents
All our coaches and managers are volunteers so extra help is always welcome. Please volunteer to help with:
- Coaching: the more help we have, the more time we can spend individually or in smaller groups.
- Helping with teas.
- Collecting match fees
Please talk to your age group coach or manager about how you can get involved. For coaching and umpiring, we will pay for relevant courses such as ECB Coach Support Worker and Level 1 umpiring. The more help we get the better it is for the boys and girls!
Parents helping on a regular basis with scoring, umpiring or coaching must complete a DBS application. Contact Polly in the club office to get more information.
Volunteering – older juniors
If older juniors would like to help coach the All Stars (u5 – u7) on a Friday afternoon, or the u8 – u14 on a Friday evening, then please talk to your age group coach. This volunteering can count towards the D of E Award, as part of the practical element of PE GCSE, or as part of BTEC community sports leadership. We will produce a certificate as proof of volunteering if needed.
Older juniors can take the Coach Support Worker course when they are 16 – for more information look at https://www.ecb.co.uk/be-involved/coaching/coaching-courses/cricket-coach-support-worker. This is the start point on the coaching pathway so if you’re interested talk to your age group coach or manager. We will pay for the course.
