The positions of Chair of Junior Cricket and Junior Cricket Representative are voted on at the club's annual general meeting, which is normally in autumn and which we encourage parents and juniors who play in senior cricket to attend.

Team managers

Junior cricket at all clubs relies on parents to organise, umpire, score and so on. There are usually 2-3 particularly keen parents per age-groups but we need ideally 4-5 parents involved, so that there can be rotation and cover for holidays, illness etc. If you're not sure how to do any of those things, we can of course show you the ropes, and most parents get the hand of it all very quickly.

What do our (volunteer) Team Managers do?

A lot! Team managers are parents who volunteer their time to organising everything necessary to make matches happen. Please show your appreciation for the many unpaid hours that all of our volunteers put in every week, treat them with respect, and offer to help.

We are looking for more parents to get involved. Please contact us on smcccolts@gmail.com or talk to us at training.
