GET INTO CRICKET
The Gloucestershire Cricket Foundation have developed ‘Get Into Cricket’, an initiative aimed at inspiring young leaders aged 14 to 18 (school/college years 9-13) to become involved with their local club.
The course covers six certificated modules, covering areas such as coaching and first aid, umpiring and scoring, grounds keeping and nutrition, and is linked to the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme to enable students to start volunteering immediately.
The cost is £30 per participant which, on completion, will be refunded.
