Volunteers

WA Community Cricket Awards

Volunteers are integral to the fabric of cricket in Western Australia. Without the dedication, commitment and passion of the thousands of volunteers who give up their time each year, community cricket would not exist.


Cricket volunteers take on roles ranging from coaching kids, keeping score and umpiring, running the canteen, keeping the finances in check or leading clubs. If we had to pay for the hours these volunteers work, the sport would not survive.

The inaugural Western Australian Community Cricket Awards represent a milestone in WA Cricket, bringing together the junior and senior cricket community in a celebration of the hard work and dedication to making our sport safe, fun, inclusive through thriving and successful clubs.

The awards encompass the achievements of volunteers in community clubs across the State, as well as the important school partnerships, and club initiatives.

The WACA received more than 240 nominations across 14 award categories and it gives us great pleasure to announce the winners of the 2019-20 WA Community Cricket Awards.
