It is a FUN and ACTIVE way to develop your child’s skills, and through the sessions they will learn lots – as well as make new friends – in a safe and inclusive environment.  The sessions deliver game-based activities that teach basic cricket skills including catching, throwing and hitting moving balls and social skills such as teamwork and communication.

OVER 8s – These sessions are aimed at delivering the next entry level in cricket coaching both in technical, batting, bowling, fielding and match play cricket.

Both girls and boys are welcome. Our coaches are ECB trained, DBS certified and First Aid trained.
