On Wednesday 15th a Drop-in Event took place at Sutton CC. Clubs from the area decended to meet  members of the Yorkshire Groundsman Association, Association of Cricket Officials, the YCB's Coach Ediucation Team, Community Coaches and Cricket Development Manager as well a Kit and Equipment suppliers, Total Play and MC Sports from Skipton. Those who attended said they had learnt a lot from the experience and wanted the Cricket Development Groups from Bradford and Craven to put this on on an annual basis so Clubs could meet key support services and  suppliers to see what was available to support their Clubs. We will certainly intend to do this as a regular pre-season event in future, both in the Craven area and in Bradford!

Here is the link to the “All Stars”  Presentation (slides & video) held at Edgbaston. The one for Yorkshire was held at Elland Road recently.

 

It is the ECB's flagship new approach to bringing cricket to the next generation.

 

The  presentation is just under an hour so you need to set  aside plenty of time to view and listen carefully. Please encourage whoever is in charge of your Junior Cricket to view  this. This is the way forward that the ECB and the County Boards (including the YCB!) will be putting their funds into!

 

You and your Club members probably want to see  this before taking any decisions about your club's future.

 

Good luck! Here is the link:https://t.co/8dID3dQcNL

 

Bradford West and Craven CDGs are jointly organising an Event on Wednesday 15th March from 7 pm onwards at Sutton Cricket Club, which Clubs can literally "drop-into". There will be a wide range of Cricket Suppliers, from Insurance to Groundworks, to Trophies and all the Cricket support bodies from the Coach Education to Senior & Junior Cricket Leagues, the Association of Cricket Officials covering Scorers and Umpires, the Yorkshire Groundsman Association and much much more. Hopefully there will be something for your Club that will help you get or find out about something you need for your Club.

And the YCB Cricket Development managers for both West and North Yorkshire will also be on hand to answer any questions you might have.

So, stick in in your diary now. For a couple of hours investment you might just find out something of real value to your Club! As we get more information abot who else will be at the Event we will update this website for you.
