Cricket Unleashed

Hampshire roadshows last autumn and the #MyHantsGameDay survey identified your priorities including junior/senior transition for players aged 13+, which is currently from 20 over games to an 84 over day plus a whole lot of travel. 1st December is the deadline for clubs to submit Hampshire Cricket League AGM motions.

A Clubs and Leagues Working Party has been evaluating a 10 team per division structure which reduces travel by 28% in regional divisions, and hopes to propose its introduction for 2019.  Teams would play home and away rather than once as in the current 18 team divisions.  Other priorities identified include earlier start times and a possible player loan trial.

 

Safe Hands cricket's safeguarding policyThe first Cricket Safeguarding Forum takes place at The Ageas Bowl 630pm Tuesday 21st November.  The purpose of the event is to share the latest developments on safeguarding in cricket, including the launch of online DBS (formerly CRB) checks. 

Where clubs do not have a trained welfare officer, advice is that legal responsibility lies with club executive officers so this invitation extends to all club chairs who are welcome to attend, including from clubs with no junior section but with junior members (i.e. aged under 18 on 31 August) - click here for more information.  Club Welfare Officer Training will take place in the first quarter of 2018 - details will appear here.
