Volunteers at sutton-in-craven cricket club

'Volunteers don't get paid, not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless'

Thinking of Volunteering?

Sutton-in-Craven Cricket Club is solely run by a group of dedicated volunteers. We strive to provide the best experience of club Cricket as we possibly can. Volunteering can be very satisfying, even if you only have a few hours to spare we are always looking for support.

Sometimes volunteering can seem very daunting, mainly because you may be apprehensive about what's expected or worried by volunteering may take up too much time. As a club we are very mindful of that fact and it is our goal to match a volunteer to a role that suits them and their available time. Volunteering in anyway, even only a few hours a week, month or season significantly increases the clubs ability to provide a positive experience to you and your children.

How can you Volunteer?

We have a number of positions where we would love you to Volunteer Please see below on how you can help

Bar Work

Volunteering on the bar has so many rewards, this can be great for meeting people enjoying the social side of Cricket and being told some fantastic stories from people at the other side of the bar

We require volunteers on the bar all year round, throughout the summer is our busiest season, The bar is open every Friday and Saturday

Through the winter we hire out the pavilion for functions, these can be for presentation nights, birthday parties, family gatherings plus many more

We will make sure you're not alone at first and get some fantastic training by our current bar team. We have also made the pavilion fully cashless meaning there is no need to worry about change, our simple to use till system will guide you and the customer through the experience to buy and pay for drinks.

If you can volunteer just one shift on the bar a month, this would be a huge relief and benefit to us and the current bar team

We are very flexible and understand that you are giving up your time to help us. we will try and make your time on the bar as little as possible as we understand you would much rather be on the other side of the bar

you will be added to a whatapp group for the bar volunteers, on here you will be able to let us know when you are available and if you need to swap with anyone if you are down on the rota

Matchday Tea's

As a Cricket Club we provide our players with a Cricket Tea on matchdays. This is only provided on Saturdays when a home game is present. Trust us, our players will love you for volunteering in this role

You will be working in twos on a Saturday to provide the cricket teas within a budget given to you. You will be given guidance on what to provide however you have chance to show the players your own taste on things

Full guidance will be given at the start. If you could volunteer once month in this role, it would help our catering volunteers a huge amount

Junior Training

There will be no future of Sutton in Craven Cricket Club without our Juniors. At Sutton CC we are very much focused on our junior section

If you have a child in the junior section we would love you to help out and become a coach of one of the junior teams, you will have a great amount of support from the Junior team setup

We can help you with the DBS checks that will be required and the ECB will fund this for you, If you also want to progress in cricket coaching we can provide you with the support needed to advance throughout the different coaching levels

All Stars Cricket

All Stars Cricket provides a fantastic first experience for all children aged 5-8 years old where they’re guaranteed 8 weeks of jam-packed fun, activity and skills development. The programme is designed to introduce children to the sport, teaching them new skills, helping them make new friends and have a great time doing so.

You will be a key volunteer who will create a fun and inclusive environment for kids and parents alike. You should be enthusiastic, vibrant and motivated people who will inspire young children and create a fantastic all-round experience.

Although many All Stars Cricket and Dynamos Cricket Volunteers will have excellent experience of cricket it is by no means essential – first and foremost, we are looking for people with fantastic personal skills.

You will be provided with a step by step guide for each training session. All the equipment will be provided to you so you can run the perfect experience for future stars of cricket

We require at least two volunteers over an 8 week period throughout the summer months

We will work with you on the best days available to suit you and your needs

We may also look at running the new ECB dynamos cricket programme available to 8-11 year olds if volunteers came forward

Ground Maintenance

Without or team of Ground volunteers we would not have a club at all. The fantastic work that they put in make sure we have one of, if not the best grounds in the league

We are always on the look out for people to help out where and when they can, you will be guided by the hugely experienced team we have

from cutting the outfield to strimming the area around the outfield, there is a job you will be able to help us with. Any time you can give us in the area will be appreciated by our current hard working team

If you can volunteer in any of the roles above please get in touch with us
