Club Connects - Upcoming Workshops

Club Connects is a Cricket Ireland initiative for cricket clubs across the island of Ireland. Clubs are at the heart of organised sport and are often the primary way people from a wide range of local communities connect ‘face-to-face’ with the sport.

The aim of the Club Connects programme is to build the capability and capacity of volunteers in cricket clubs so that they can provide the kind of positive experiences that will aid growth in ways that matter to the clubs, the community, Cricket Ireland, and Ireland as a whole.

We are delighted to announce our Club Connects Workshops for the winter/spring series.
