vCricket: Calling all 16-25 year olds!

  • Do you need something to boost your CV?
  • Need some hands on experience to help support a job application?
  • Have some time on your hands?
  • What to have fun and meet new people?
  • Gain new skills and develop existing ones?
  • Are you applying to University and want to stand out?
  • Are you enthusiastic, reliable, genuine, organised and energetic?

Then the vCricket programme is for you and you don’t even need to know anything about cricket.

What is it?

The vCricket programme is here to introduce young people into cricket, offering a broad range of volunteering opportunities, providing: enjoyable, enhancing and sustainable programmes for both volunteers and clubs.

The vCricket programme will change the dynamic of the workforce to support the game. We will introduce more young people of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds, male and female, to help invigorate a vibrant club network.

vCricket awards

The V team has consulted and listened to lots of young people and we think we understand what it is that you want back from volunteering.

We have therefore set up the vCricket awards, which gives you recognition for completing 25, 50 and 100 hours.

All you need to do to sign up is contact your regional V manager to find a club and then obtain an hours book.

Then every time you volunteer in cricket you get your hours signed off by the volunteer co-ordinator at your club.

It really is that easy!

You then send in the slip at the back of the book and once you have completed this we will send you a certificate and at 25 hours a vCricket polo shirt.

At 50 hours you get a certificate and vCricket hooded sweater and at 100 hours a certificate and limited edition silver pin badge.

There really is a role for everyone so get in touch with us!

You can be a part of this and by giving time (‘doing a favour’) to help your local community cricket club, you could be opening up a whole host of opportunities for yourself, both now and in the future!

You can make a difference; ‘do a favour’ for the local club.
