Parent Help: Portsmouth Cricket Club is a volunteer organisation that cannot operate without assistance from the players’ parents and supporters. The generous giving of your valuable time ensures our children can continue playing a game they love, while learning and developing new
Managing: A team manager is essential for all teams with no experience required.
A Manager works with the coach and relays information to parents and keeps the team organised while the coach is able to devote time and energy to developing and teaching players new skills.
Scoring: If you want to become more involved in your child’s cricket, a great way to do this is through scoring.
Umpiring: Being able to offer assistance in this area will provide valuable time off the field for your team coach to instruct players.
If you are able to help with any on the above please email anyone on the committee. Thank you.
