With the launch of the Kia Super League in 2016, women’s cricket is taking a new and exciting form.
In 2017 England host the ICC Women’s World Cup and women’s cricket will be centre-stage in the South West with seven matches taking place at the Cooper Associates Ground as well as year two of the Kia Super League!
With this in mind Western Storm, in conjunction with Somerset Cricket Board, wants to create a team of inspiring females within the club network to help the growth of women’s cricket in clubs across the South West.
The Storm Champion Programme is available for females aged 16+ who would like to take a more active role in supporting women & girls activity in clubs and the wider community.
The programme is designed to give females involved in cricket the confidence and skills to take on some of the roles involved in running cricket as well as connecting to other like-minded females across the South West!
What the Storm Champion programme will offer:
- ‘How to promote & market your club support.
- Officiating – Introduction to Umpiring and Scoring
- Coach support worker course (Introduction to delivering cricket)
