Junior cricket is absolutely dependent upon parent volunteers. No volunteers, no cricket – simple.
Level 1 Community Coaching with CNSW
This is a 6 hr nationally accredited course usually delivered by CNSW over 2 sessions. It is suitable for mums and dads interested in learning the basics of cricket coaching and skills development. MCC requires all junior coaches to be qualified and so pays for this course. Keep an eye on the website for details.
NSJCA Accredited Umpires
All junior teams require at least 2 qualified umpires. The NSJCA run pre-season courses at no cost to you. No previous cricket knowledge is required. Keep an eye on the website for details.
NSJCA Scorers Course
All junior teams require at least two scorers. The NSJCA run pre-season courses for no cost that teach parents what they need to become a competent scorer. No previous cricket knowledge is required. Keep an eye on the website for details.
Working with Children Checks
Under current NSW legislation, parent volunteers or close relatives (step-parents, siblings, grand- carers) can volunteer for activities that involve their own children without needing a Working With Children Check (WWCC).
All other volunteers will need to undertake the check and must do so before commencing cricket activities. All professional coaches employed by MCC either directly or indirectly are properly accredited.
