This exciting club package will support your club to build an under 11s girls section for the 2021 season. It includes a full programme of support from Devon cricket, which will compliment the plans you already have in place to start a girl's section. It is a 2 year programme of support, offering upskilling of volunteers and help with participant recruitment in the first season, as well as providing opportunities for the girls to play at regional events throughout the season. 

An 8 week programme will be provided to the clubs to support the coaches. The club offer could be a girl's only offer as part of the national Dynamos programme or a chance for the club to provide girl's only training within the existing youth structure. 

As clubs move into Year 2, the offer for upskilling volunteers remains, as well as offering events over the winter to keep interest and support with maintaining the pathway of girl's cricket at your club. 

The launch of under 11 teams within multiple clubs at the same time will enhance playing opportunities and meaningful play for the girls. 

The focus within the ECB is to ensure that cricket is the game for everyone and this is reflected in their emphasis on women and girl's cricket and the fact that, as a club, it is very difficult to access funding streams without offering either of these options.

With this support to set up an under 11s girl's section will help clubs to start a sustainable new girl's section for the winter and start to create an essential playing pathway for All Stars. It also helps to promote a more diverse and inclusive playing landscape across Devon. 

If you club as a large number of girls that attend All Stars or have engaged in the Devon Cricket activities during last season and have started to think about setting up a girl's section, then this is the offer for your club.
