Weekly Messaging Update


This week's bulletin contains information on a National Programmes Seminar, a Safeguarding team DBS update and flood protection advice for clubs. 

All Stars & Dynamos

We are now just over a week away from the National Programme seminar on 9th February at 6pm. If you haven’t done so, make sure you register your attendance, and pass on the form to any relevant people within your club that will benefit from hearing the key All Stars and Dynamos Cricket updates for 2021.

As the participant registration window gets closer, we’d like to encourage all of you to get your All Stars and Dynamos Cricket courses uploaded onto the ClubSpark platform as soon as possible. You can also be recruiting and uploading your activator details if you have their information, however, activator e-learning will be available from March onwards – there will be more information provided on this as part of the seminar.

Update from ECB Safeguarding Team regarding DBS 

We would encourage you to check that you have a valid DBS and if necessary, make an application as soon as possible. It’s important to start this process early in preparation for the new season and to avoid delays when cricket activities resume.  

As a result of the Government’s current national lockdown restrictions and advice from the Disclosure and Barring Service, the ECB are continuing with Online ID verifications until further notice. This includes the initiation and verification of DBS applications.

Access is currently restricted to a limited group of Primary and Secondary users at County & ECB Level. Once you have submitted an application you will receive a link to use the Find a Verifier feature. After entering your postcode you will be asked to select 3 verifiers in order of preference. Once a verifier accepts your request you will be notified and advised to contact them to set up a Video ID meeting.

Links to some video conferencing / call software:

Important steps for the ID verification meeting:

ECB advice and support for clubs against flooding

Floods can have a devastating impact on a cricket club, causing damage to both pavilions and grounds.

The ECB provides advice and support for affected clubs in these situations, whether it be significant damage to buildings and machinery or deposits of sediment and waste on outfields and squares.
