West region update for Junior Convenors, October 2017

Tim Hart has circulated an update on a number of things happening in and around the west region.

Indoor Kwik Cricket

Unfortunately, only one club was available for the planned festival last Sunday, so it was cancelled. However, at least five clubs have expressed an interest in more regular indoor activity. A booking request has been submitted to Glasgow Life. Once the booking is confirmed Tim Hart will be in contact will all clubs with details of the dates, times, venue, format, cost, etc, hopefully at some point next week.

UKCC Level 2 assessments

Two coaches attended on Sunday and both passed their final assessment. If there are any coaches at clubs who were on the 2015 or 2016 Level 2 coaching courses and who have not yet completed their assessment, they should get in contact with Tim Hart.

Cricket Scotland coaching forum

The Cricket Scotland High Performance coaching team are coming to the west to deliver their latest coaching update this Saturday (Saturday the 21st of October). The workshop is not a “performance” workshop – it is designed for all coaches working within the coaching network and Tim Hart would strongly encourage all coaches to come along if they can. The link to book on is available here.

Cricket Scotland junior cricket roadshows

There will be a series of roadshows around the country this November. The topics covered will be “All Stars Cricket” and junior cricket format proposals. The roadshows are not just for Junior Convenors and Tim Hart would also strongly encourage all age-group team managers and active coaches within club pathways to attend. The west roadshow will be taking place at Shawholm (Poloc CC) on Sunday the 19th of November, at 3pm. The booking form is available here.
