Code for parents and spectators

1, Never force a child to play.

2, Always remember: children play Cricket for their enjoyment, not yours.

3, Teach your child that victory isn’t everything, playing as well as you can
is just as important, defeat is no disgrace.

4, Never yell at a player for making a mistake. Never sneer or use sarcasm,
remember they are not playing for your benefit.

5, Applaud good play - by either team.
Back up the umpire : don’t publicly question the umpire’s fairness or
ability. Children learn best by example. Set a good example.

6, Stay off the pitch. Coaches and umpires are qualified to be there.
If you want to get involved in junior cricket, join them and learn how.
Otherwise don’t interfere.

7, Don’t abuse anyone - especially the umpire: like the coaches, he is unpaid
and he has given up his spare time.
Without these volunteers there is no junior cricket.

Safety & Welfare

Our philosophy at Bartestree & Lugwardine Cricket Club is to enjoy the game of cricket and to encourage players of all standards. We aim to provide a safe environment for all and everyone who has a part to play in this; Committee Members, coaches, helpers, players, parents and guardians.

All players MUST wear the correct footwear and safety equipment when batting or wicket keeping.

We strongly encourage all parents who coach on a regular basis to gain
ECB coaching qualifications. The majority of teams have at least one
qualified coach, who will have covered the following elements:

• Coaching and developing players.
• Injury prevention and basic first aid.
• Child protection.

All coaches and committee members have undergone a Criminal Records Bureau check

All parents who help out with teams regularly have a Criminal Records Bureau check.

If you are not staying to watch, you must make sure that the team coach or manager has an emergency contact number.
