Volunteers

Cricket Administrators and Volunteers are the greatest assets of our clubs and associations.

SACA recognises the significant contribution volunteers make. Without volunteer involvement at all levels of the game, many clubs and associations simply could not exist.

A variety of resources are available for volunteers to access:

V-Star Volunteer Management Plan
V-STAR is a volunteer management tool, ideal for clubs and associations. A STARCLUB resource, V-STAR is a quick and easy online process providing volunteers with an action plan to work towards being a best practice club.

You can  watch a two-minute video on how best to utilise V-Star, plus download an editable V-Star Volunteer Management Handbook.         

Visit the V-STAR website now to get a head-start on the management and organisation of your club for season 2018-19, including taking the five-minute quiz to see where your club currently sits.
