Junior Off Field Roles
The team managers role entails rostering parents to carry out the various tasks that are required each match, entering the scores to My cricket website and being a point of contact for the team. Roles that need to be carried out each match are scorer, canteen staff, morning tea and ground setup.
The assistant coaches role is help out at training if possible but more importantly be another eye and ear for the coach on game day, assist with the umpiring talking the players off the field if the coach is on the field and be someone to bounce ideas off.
Our club philosophy is to ensure everyone gets a go and improves on their skills though out the season.
