3. DBS has gone digital and it's great!

 It will save you time, you get results quicker and is simpler to do.  For volunteers it's free. 

An ID Verifier is critical to the process, as they initiate applications and verify people's IDs; both key steps in the DBS process. Many clubs already have an IDV and therefore can offer the simplest and easiest process to anyone in the club who needs a DBS. It will most likely be your Club Welfare officer, but it could be anyone.  

If you don’t have a Club IDV then please contact your county Cricket Board who can set you up.

4. ECB ACO - Scorers Count

Building on 2017’s launch of the Play-Cricket Scorer app, ECB has developed Play-Cricket Scorer Pro - a FREE laptop scoring software for Windows and Apple Mac (via parallels desktop). ECB and ECB ACO are touring the country over the coming weeks, showcasing its functionality to all. These events are free and open to all; to book your place and see more details, click here.

The season is rapidly approaching and the weekly plea to your number 11 to take over the scoring reigns is just around the corner!! Why not make your job easier and encourage your players to get to grips with all the basic scoring skills and techniques in their own time? Click here to access the e-learning course.

 Don’t forget the stage 1 umpire course, perfect for those starting their umpiring journey or those who want to learn more in advance of pulling on the white coat - the available courses in your area can be found here.

5. Play-Cricket: Powering recreational cricket

With pre-season coming up, now is a great time to get to grips with the new technology you could be utilising.

We have produced a variety of walk-through videos for the Play-Cricket Scorer App introduced in 2017. Click here and scroll to the bottom of the page to view the videos.
