The genuine bonds we formed, with our Sri Lankan brothers, still thrills me to this day.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED
There are many opportunities to get involved with the Cricket Live Foundation in Sri Lanka. Opportunities range from High School students coming across to help out at the centres during their holidays or once they have finished school, right through to Program Assistant opportunities for anyone over the age of 25. There are several options for accommodation, based on budget requirements. We will price each experience based on the individuals requirements and budget. Please contact us for more information about these experiences. All Volunteers will incur a NZD$450 placement fee. This fee covers airport pick up, 24/7 support from CLF staff, a tailored volunteering itinerary, administration costs and a 10% donation (NZD$45) to the Foundation.

There is far more to the Cricket Live centres than just cricket. If you do not see yourself as a cricket coach, then becoming a program assistant at a Cricket Live centre will be a perfect way to get involved. Being a Program Assistant involves classroom work with the children, planning and carrying out team building sessions, organising a monthly activity day for the children and their parents, and working in the office alongside the operations manager, Sanjeewa Silva.
Being a volunteer coach at a Cricket Live centre is a selfless way to pass on your cricketing knowledge to change many children's lives. Volunteer coaches will work along side the Cricket Live coaching staff to put together and carry out two training sessions per day and up to 14 sessions per week. You will also be responsible to participate and deliver a presentation in a Cricket Live coach education seminar. A national cricket coaching qualification is required to participate as a volunteer coach.
The Cricket Live GAP experience is aimed at those cricketers who have recently left high school or university. This experience combines volunteer work at a Cricket Live centre and private cricket coaching with professional coaches at a local academy. The volunteer work will include coaching, administration and marketing work and assisting the Cricket Live manager.
