Volunteering to assist with MILO T20 Blast and MILO in2cricket programs can meet the time requirements needed for the Bronze Award.

How to volunteer at your local club:

  • If already playing club cricket, simply ask at the club whether they offer any Junior programs like the MILO T20 Blast and MILO in2cricket and whether you would be able to volunteer,
  • If not playing cricket for a local cricket club, then use the club finder search tool on www.playcricket.com.au to find the details for a local club who you can contact to see whether they offer junior programs like the MILO T20 Blast and Milo in2crciket or if they can provide general volunteering activities
