The breakfast event at Adelaide Oval was hosted by Network Ten’s Rebecca Morse, and welcomed special guest speaker, Paralympic gold medallist, Katrina Webb.

SACA's  partnership with major sponsor Statewide Super helps to recognise grassroots volunteers in both metropolitan and regional areas, with Gavin Carnegie-Smith from the Great Southern Cricket Association being named SACA's Statewide Super Volunteer of the Year for his tireless efforts.

As the President of the GSCA and the President of Port Elliot Management Committee, Carnegie-Smith led the launch of girls’ programs, while also demonstrating a drive to expand the reach of SACA’s programs, including the adoption of the new Cricket Australia junior formats changes.

Twenty-five and 50-year Service Awards were bestowed upon volunteers for their extended service to cricket as players, volunteers, coaches and administrators.

The SACA Community Awards, with categories such as Cricket Initiative of the Year and Community Cricket Club of the Year, were a celebration of the many achievements of community clubs, associations, indoor centres, administrators and volunteers who do so much to make cricket fun, safe, welcoming and inclusive.

SACA and Statewide Super would like to thank all cricket volunteers for their hard work and passion toward making cricket a sport for all.
