Message below to Colts parents from Matt Pryor, Colts Chairman . As Christmas and the arrival of 2019 becomes a distant memory, thoughts turn to the coming cricket season.
2018 was the most successful season in Colts history at Shenfield Cricket Club, not only on the pitch but off it as well, with nearly 250 local children
having registered at the club and that number is set to rise this year.
Volunteers are the life blood of any sports club and the Colts section at Shenfield Cricket Club is fortunate to have a number of
talented and motivated people who wear many hats in ensuring the season is a success for the children.
With the season commencing in April and running for 16 weeks, the following roles are ideal for Mums, Dads, Guardians,
grandparents and our older Colts to get involved and contribute in a variety of ways.
Coaching Support Assistants
Assist our qualified coaching staff in helping our younger players develop at coaching sessions on a Thursday and/or Friday.
Allstars Coaching Assistants
With a record of 65 children registering to take part in this 8-week course last season, help is always needed in running these fun sessions.
The sessions are to start in May and will be held on a Friday evening.
Junior Team Managers
With the intention of entering 12 teams (U8-U16) including a girls’ team into various league and cup competitions this season,
it is imperative we have enough age group managers for each team.
Junior Team Scorers
Each team will require scorers, helping the Junior Team Managers on match days.
Age Group Match Day Helpers
There are many tasks required of a team manager on match days, especially when playing at home and the more help available, the easier it is. Tasks include:
Setting the pitch up (as well as tidying up afterwards)
Warm Up drills with the players
Getting involved is a great way to support your child and the team.
Help and advice is available from myself or any of the Colts committee if you want to get involved in any of these roles.
Colts Event Organisers
From BBQs to a weekly raffle, it is events that galvanise the club and its members whilst raising valuable funds.
Volunteering to help the Colts in any way at Shenfield Cricket Club is a fun way of getting to know other parents and is about being part of a team – full help,
support and any training for all the roles is always given and there are workshops planned prior to the start of the season, so you will never be left to work
on your own.
If you – or anyone you know are interested in joining the Colts team at SCC or if you have any questions,
please contact me via email (email@example.com) as without you, the club cannot continue to improve the experiences of our young members.
