Hello all, as the cricket road map has been laid out, WESTCLIFF CRICKET CLUB are excited about starting cricket soon.

If your child is interested in playing cricket or learning a new sport, why not get in contact and head over on Friday nights? We are aiming to start on the 30th April.

On Fridays we have under 7s, under 9s and under 11s training at Chalkwell park. I run the training for children in year 1 to 4. If you are interested, please send me a message.

If your child is in year 5 or 6, please send me a message and I’ll put you in contact with the age group coach.

Under 13s and 15s train midweek. Likewise, if  you are interested, please let me know.

Safeguarding Policy Statement

Westcliff-on-Sea Cricket Club (The Club) is committed to ensuring all Children (i.e all persons under the age of 18 ) participating in cricket have a safe and positive experience.

We will do this by:

  • Recognising all children participating in cricket (regardless of age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, ability or disability) have the right to have fun and be protected from harm in a safe environment
  • Ensuring individuals working within cricket at, or for, our club provide a welcoming, safe, and fun experience for children
  • Adopting and implementing the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) “Safe Hands – Cricket’s Policy for Safeguarding Children” and any future versions of this
  • Appointing a Club Welfare Officer and ensuring they attend all current and future training modules required by the ECB
  • Ensuring all people who work in cricket at, or for, our club (such as staff, officials, volunteers, team managers, coaches and so on) have a responsibility for safeguarding children, and understand how the “Safe Hands Policy” applies to them
  • Ensuring all individuals working within cricket at, or for, the club are recruited and appointed in accordance with ECB guidelines and relevant legislation
  • Ensuring all individuals working within cricket at, or for, the club are provided with support, through education and training, so they are aware of, and can
    adhere to, good practice and Code of Conduct guidelines defined by the ECB, and the club
  • Ensuring the name and contact details of the Club Welfare Officer is available:
    – As the first point of contact for parents, children and volunteers/staff within the club

  • Ensuring correct and comprehensive reporting procedures exist for raising and managing child safeguarding concerns.
  • Providing an environment where the views of children, parents and volunteers are sought and welcomed on a range of issues. This will help us create an environment where people have the opportunity to voice any concerns (about possible suspected child abuse/neglect, and/or about poor practice) to the Club Welfare Officer *
  • Ensuring all suspicions concerns and allegations are taken seriously and dealt with swiftly and appropriately
  • Ensuring access to confidential information relating to child safeguarding matters is restricted to those who need to know in order to safeguard children – including the Club Welfare Officer and the appropriate external authorities, such as the Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO), as specified within ECB child safeguarding procedures
