Setting up a girl's section in your club is not as duanting as you think and now 25% of our All Stars are now girls we need to think about how we are going to keep them in our clubs and playing cricket.
The benefits of keeping girls in our clubs is clear. For starters, it gives you a bigger playing base and provides the club with a more inclusive and social dynamic.
A girl's section brings a disproportionate number of volunteers to help with the club in lots of different roles, such as coaching, marketing and administration.
This all-inclusive approach also helps with funding and grants, as Trasforming Women and Girl's cricket is one of the main five focuses of the ECB in the next 5 years.
If you need any help or would like to arrange a meeting to discuss how you can set up a girl's section at your club, look at the links below and then contact Ann-Marie Presswell, Women and Girl's Development Officer.
