PLEASE NOTE Several Clubs are joining us for the first time in 2022. If there are any others wishing to do so please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Following the successful introduction of Competitive and Development Divisions at U15 level last season this is also to be introduced at U13 level in 2022These are explained in the questionnaire.

"Where Development & Competition leagues are mentioned, this means that Development league matches will operate with modified playing conditions to facilitate broader involvement of all players, whereas Competitive league matches will be closer to standard playing conditions. Full details of this will be reviewed and presented to a league meeting before the season starts."

JUNIOR CRICKET AND SAFEGUARDING

Following our recent involvement and experience with some clubs in their pursuit of Safe Hands Management System (SHMS) Compliance, together with the recent proliferation of Cricket Training Centres, Schools, Academies, and individuals offering 1 to 1s we believe we should issue the following advice to clubs, players, and parents/guardians.

The SHMS compliance system applies to LCF/ECB accredited clubs and does not currently apply to any of the organisations listed above.

If you engage with any organisation or private individual, other than from the Club which you are a member, for coaching or any other cricket activity, then we believe you should check the safeguarding qualifications of the individual(s) working with your players/children, particularly the possession of in-date Disclosure and Barring Service Certificates (DBS).

Similarly, Clubs that enter into arrangements for matches and tournaments outside of the LCF/ECB affiliated Junior Match League programme organised by the Liverpool Competition, and other Junior Cricket Leagues within our League area, should ensure their own governance for these activities.
