For the attention of ALL SCORERS
The Association of Cricket Officials (ACO), supported by the England and Wales Cricket Board, (ECB) is the organisation that represents cricket officials in the recreational game.
The ECB ACO is offering, for one year only, the chance to be a recognised ECB ACO scorer and credit you with a relevant Scorers’ Award; Level 1 or 2. This will not involve any courses or exams, simply a verification of the standard that you are currently scoring at.
This initiative is aimed at verifying and rewarding the work of Scorers at all levels from friendly, school, youth and feeder league matches, up to and including those who score in Premier or Senior leagues or above.
It is recommended that from 2012 all Premier League clubs should have an ECB ACO L2 scorer and this process will help clubs to achieve that. This aspect of the game is also an integral part in gaining and maintaining any ClubMark status.
PLEASE COMPLETE THE FORM even if you do not wish to apply for accreditation so that we can update our database and more efficiently service the needs of scorers.
To apply for the accreditation please complete the attached application form and return it to ECB ACO. You will then be contacted to arrange for your verification to take place. This is offered free to all ECB ACO members and if you are not an ECB ACO member then a charge of £30 will be made which will include your first year’s FREE ACO MEMBERSHIP. Details of membership benefits can be found at www.ecb.co.uk/ecbaco but include free CRB disclosure, Insurance, quarterly magazine, and a national appointment system providing opportunities to score at a higher level.
The ECB ACO is committed to providing a pathway for all officials that mirrors that for players and coaches – that is, from the Playground to the Test Arena. If, on the other hand, your ambitions do not extend beyond scoring for your local club, then you are equally valued for the contribution that you can make to this great game of ours.
This offer is only available until the end of March 2012. Further information on this initiative is available from email@example.com
