Three jobs every parent of young cricketers feel like they have. Is good sporting parenting is about more than this? Whether you are a kid, parent or coach the answer is probably yes.
This doesn't mean parents need to be heavily involved with the cricket club their kids play in. Most teenagers might even cringe at that thought. There are certain things a good mum or dad can do that won't go that far.
Underlying all these tips is the idea that parents exist in a young players world to offer support.

How long can you play club cricket at a decent level and still enjoy it?
You don't find many professional cricketers playing beyond 40 these days. Club players can go on longer as the demands are less. However for most of us the glory days are in our 20's. What follows is a gradual drop in standard as we hit 40, 50 and beyond.
As you have probably already noticed the new community section is open.
It's accessible through the sidebar on the right hand side underneath the Cricket Resources box. If you are reading this in an email or RSS feed then click here to visit the site and see it.
The reason this section has been created is that I want this site to be as interactive as possible.
