Volunteer Activators are being sought for the ECB’s All Stars Cricket programme – a scheme aimed at developing the movement skills of 5 to 8-year olds and increasing their interest in cricket. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to gain experience that will relate to coaching or teaching. Training is provided, and there is the flexibility for students to receive that in Lincoln or back at home. Similarly the volunteering in the Summer can be at any club that is involved in All Stars Cricket. Students from any sporting background are welcome! A novel feature of the programme is an emphasis on inviting parents to participate in activities, and the training also covers interactions with parents.

Our  local coordinator is Justin Owen of Lincolnshire Cricket, and the slides from a recent information session can be found here: Uni ASC Activator presentation. Details of the scheme and its benefits are given. Justin can be contacted at justin.owen@lincscricket.co.uk
