Top tips from Workington
Posted in NatWest CricketForce 2008
Couple of 'Top Tips' which have helped promote NatWest CricketForce projects for Workington Cricket Club:
A simple but very effective way to start is to take a good look at your ground and facilities with the view to making improvements.
Take digital photographs of the areas you feel could do with improvement, small or large. Print and distribute to club members and committee.
Projects can be big or small – identifying areas for improvements is the start – you have initiated your projects. Plan ahead, get people involved.
Arrange a club gathering for as many people as possible - players, parents etc.
This could be a stand alone meeting, part of a quiz night or fundraising event i.e. race night.
Give the examples of potential improvements and encourage discussion amongst members present.
Acceptance of roles i.e. project manager, liaison to companies etc, is a key area to ensuring projects are completed.
Highlight previous achievements and what the benefits of achieving the highlighted projects will bring to your club.
Workington has a couple of project sub committees for NWCF 2008.
One is leading the new garage / scorebox project, this consists of four junior parents and three committee members.
The second group are looking decorating the main club room, this is lead by the club functions committee.
During February we have four club functions; at each NWCF will be highlighted using club project photographs, NWCF Newsletters, available on ecb.co.uk
The message is clear, for success plan early, involve all members of you club and communicate to everyone.
