The Cricket Southern Bayside Zone

Cricket Southern Bayside (CSB) is as a Cricket Victoria Zone, which consists of two cricketing regions being:

Region 12 - Metropolitan Inner South East and Region 15 - Metropolitan South East Bayside (see image below).

The CSB zone is managed by an Area Manager with direct responsibility to the General Manager - Community Cricket, Cricket Victoria.

Each region has two Field Force staff being the Cricket Manager and a Participation Officer.

Cricket Managers report to the Area Manager, and are the direct line manager for the Participation officer. The responsibilities of the Cricket Manager are the delivery of the entry level program Cricket Blast, working in the region to increase Female Participation, deliver the new Cricket Australia Junior Formats Program, and to work with clubs and associations with a focus on Club Development. This includes a key focus on improving the migration from school programs to club participation.

Participation Officers operate our school based programs, from skill sessions to competitions and holiday programs.

The CSB zone differs from other regions and zones across Victoria in that it also has direct responsibilities (as at July 2018 ) for two competitions (Men's Turf and Women's) and its own indoor cricket team in the National Indoor Cricket League.

As such, the Area Manager, known in Southern Bayside as the Head of Cricket Southern Bayside, is appointed by Cricket Victoria to manage the Zones two Field Force teams (Region 12 & 15), and reports to an independent board made up of representatives from the major competitions within the zone (CSB, South East Cricket Association and Inner South East Cricket Association).

Cricket Victoria provide further support to the region through a Coach and Talent Specialist.

The Coach and Talent specialist (CAT) is focused on High Performance and Acaedmy programs for developing talent and reports to the High Performance department of Cricket Victoria whilst working with the Southern Bayside team.

 Warren Griffin - Head of Cricket Southern Bayside
