Cricket Scotland’s West Regional Participation Manager, Tim Hart, has released the final schedule for a series of Under 11 indoor “Kwik Cricket” festivals, taking place during October, November and December. Five teams have entered the series of participation festivals, with each team scheduled to ‘host’ at least one festival.
Tim Hart has emailed club Junior Convenors with details of a Cricket Scotland “West Region Participation Forum”. The forum will focus on “All Stars Cricket”, the Junior formats, Cricket Scotland participation programmes – and will feature a short practical element. More information is available here.
sportscotland and Cricket Scotland have asked that we publicise an article that sportscotland is currently featuring on the SPORTSFIRST section of its website, involving two cricketers at East Kilbride CC.

This will incorporate specific guidance on the Cricket Scotland Club Child Protection Policy.
This course is aimed at club Child Protection Officers, Junior Convenors, etc.
