Natwest OSCAs 2017 - Nominations now open
Wiltshire Cricket Limited is delighted to announce that it will be holding its annual Outstanding Services to Cricket Awards (OSCAs) ceremony on Friday 15th September 2017 at the Ceres Hall in Devizes. The evening will celebrate the outstanding work of volunteers across the county and will be run in combination with the Wiltshire County Age Group awards.
For club cricket, 2017 has been a momentous year with many clubs engaging with new ECB initiatives for the first time. For example, All Stars Cricket, Women’s Soft Ball Cricket, CricketFest and the new Clubmark process have all come on board in 2017. Each of these initiatives have been fantastic for the game but they each place an additional workload on the volunteer network within clubs. As a result, Wiltshire Cricket really encourages your club to take a look at the OSCAs criteria in order for you to identify whether there is a volunteer worthy of nomination in your club. The OSCAs are a great way that we can recognise the outstanding efforts that these volunteers give.
The 7 NatWest OSCAs nomination categories for 2017 will be:
- Heartbeat of the Club
- Get the Game On
- Lifetime Achiever
- NatWest CricketForce
- Officiating – Umpires and Scorers
- Young Volunteer
The OSCAs are aimed at rewarding and recognising the volunteers that the game of Cricket simply couldn’t do without and so the purpose of this message is to ask for your support in nominating individuals from within your club who you feel are worthy of recognition in one of the categories above.
Please pass on this information to as many individuals in your club as this represents an excellent opportunity to recognise those unsung heroes without whom the game would not run. Please send the nominations through to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is Monday 14th August. To complete nominations please return the attached nomination form.
