The Young Leaders Programme is for 14-16 year olds and is made up of 5 modules, which are a combination of leadership and life skills:

  • Activator coaching module

  • Umpiring and Scoring

  • Groundskeeping

  • First Aid

  • Fundraising

Each young leader, with their parent or guardian, signs a pledge committing to completing the training (a total of 16 hours). All the courses are accredited and provided by the ECBCA/ACO/IOG and a first aid training provider. 

There is a charge of £40 to cover administration. All other time to deliver the programme is given voluntarily. 

In return, the Young Leader has to offer a minimum of 20 hours volunteering back into their club and the local community. The Young Leader will have the chance to volunteer as an umpire or to score junior games, be coaching assistants for junior practice sessions or assistance match managers for junior teams, and a host of other functions at the club.

The Young Leader earns a certificate for each module once they have completed all their hours and is rewarded with a ceremony hosted by the ECB. The benefits of this programme include:

  • cricket leadership skills

  • qualifications and life skills

  • the chance to be a role model to younger club members

  • volunteering as part of this programme qualifies for the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme; and 

  • it looks great on a university personal statement and/or CV!
