MILO T20 Blast Roles & Responsibilities
Each MILO T20 Blast centre has a Program Coordinator and dependent on participant numbers also has a skills zone deliverer/s.
The main focus points of these roles include;
- Set up and pack up of the entire match day each week
- Recruitment and training of volunteer team managers (one per team)
- Be the key point of contact for the duration of the program
- Deliver the ‘Skills Zone’ activities
- Be the key driver in creating the ultimate program atmosphere
Recruitment and training of these deliverers will be conducted by your State and Territory Cricket Association. In addition to the deliverers, each club taking part in a MILO T20 Blast program is expected to provide a team manager to help coordinate their own team.
