Child Welfare Policy

The League has a duty of care and welfare of young people.  As such we have adopted and implemented the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) Safe Hands Policy.  All the clubs within our League have also adopted the policy and have agreed to adhere to the following:

  • ·         Child Welfare Officer should be DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked.
  • ·         Child Welfare Officer should have been on the ‘Safeguarding Children’ course and the ‘Safe Hands’ course.
  • ·         All clubs should include the policy in their constitution
  • ·         All umpires from the Scarborough Umpires Association must be DBS checked.
  • ·         All club umpires must by DBS checked.  A self-certified umpire is no longer allowed to stand
  • ·         All scorers over eighteen must be DBS checked.
  • ·         All Captains must be DBS checked.
  • ·         It is recommended that Vice Captains are DBS checked.
  • ·         Clubs to ensure that coaches, managers, and anyone else who has direct contact with children are DBS checked
  • ·         On the field of play It is recommended that at least one person per team must be DBS checked.


The above policy is to protect young people, vulnerable adults and all the people working within local cricket clubs. Please give it your full support
