Volunteer recognition

Volunteers are critical to our sport and undoubtedly there are individuals within your club or associations that have been the backbone of your organisation for many years, or are currently one of the key drivers in making everything happen. Through SACA’s Cricket Partnership Program, association and clubs have the opportunity to recognise and publicly thank some of these important individuals.

1. Nomination for volunteer recognition – 50 years of service

Cricket Australia and SACA wish to recognise volunteers whom have provided 50 years of service to cricket.

Service to cricket can be defined as a player, a coach, an administrator, an umpire, ground staff, a scorer or a general helper. As with most of our long serving volunteers, it will probably be a combination of a number of these roles. To thank our long serving volunteers, nominated individuals will be awarded with a gold plated Cricket Australia branded pin presented in a velvet case. A certificate will accompany the pin signed by the Chairman of Cricket Australia.

South Australian cricket associations and clubs are asked to complete the Cricket Australia 50 Years of service to cricket nomination form on the link below to nominate one of your volunteers for a service pin. Nominations when completed should be forwarded to the attention of the Club Development Leader at SACA, as per the instructions on the nomination form.

These awards will be presented to the recipients at the Volunteer Recognition Ceremony to be held at Adelaide Oval on Australia Day, 26th January 2015.

Nominations close at 5.00pm on Monday 15th December 2014.

2. Nomination for volunteer recognition – 25 years of service (SACA)

The nomination form below allows you to nominate those long standing volunteers for a SACA 25 years of service medallion for their service to cricket.

Service to cricket can be defined as a player, a coach, an administrator, an umpire, ground staff, a scorer or a general helper. As with most of our long serving volunteers, it will probably be a combination of a number of these roles.

Each volunteer will be invited to the SACA Volunteer Recognition Day on January 26th 2015 and after the presentation of the awards, all will be officially recognised as a group. It is then envisaged that the award will be made available to your organisation for presentation at your end of season function.

Nominations close at 5.00pm on Monday 15th December 2014.

3. The South Australian Community Cricket Volunteer of the Year

The winner of this prestigious award will be chosen from the SA Regional Volunteer Award winners, and will be presented at the Regional Volunteer Awards ceremony to be held at the Adelaide Oval on the evening of December 31st January 2014. The SA Community Cricket Volunteer of the Year will then attend a Cricket Australia Hospitality Event to recognise volunteers at the ODI in Melbourne on January 16th 2015.

Nominations close Monday 15th December 2015, and completed forms should be forwarded to Andrew Caldwell at the SACA; acaldwell@saca.com.au

4. First time volunteer certificates

Cricket Australia is committed to recognising the significant impact volunteers have on the wellbeing of our great game and through its partnership with the Australian Cricket Society, have introduced a recognition program to acknowledge first time volunteers. The program aims to identify volunteers within clubs and MILO in2CRICKET centres that have contributed in some way, whether it is through coaching, umpiring or administration.

By nominating a volunteer at your club or centre, you can say thank you to your volunteers that have contributed to inspiring the next generation of cricket players and fans.

Club administrators are encouraged to nominate their volunteers:

  1. Find nominated volunteer via the club/centres My Cricket person list. Menu: People > Person list.
  2. Edit person record (right click on name)
  3. Add new role “Volunteer Award”. Person Edit: Roles > Add new role – Office bearer. Select sub-role Volunteer Award

5. SACA’s Volunteer Recognition Day

SACA is keen to be able to personally thank some of our key volunteers and will again be holding an annual Volunteers Recognition Day at the Adelaide Oval on Monday 26th January 2015, so make a note in your diary for this event now!

This will again coincide with the final of the Country Living Homes State-wide Club Twenty/20 Final, and will provide an opportunity for many South Australian players, parents and administrators to attend and congratulate their volunteers, while enjoying the cricket and facilities at Adelaide Oval.
