Perfect for a child’s first introduction to cricket, our coaches deliver courses with an emphasis on fun and enjoyment – and just enough competitive edge.
They’ll encourage your child every step of the way and will incorporate a variety of different ball sports to bring on those all-important fundamental movements and skills.
Still very much focused on fun, enjoyment and competition, but with increased focus on specific cricketing skills.
Teamwork, leadership skills, together with the values of fair play and respect for which cricket is renowned, will now start to shine through.
We’ll continue to develop those physical attributes, technical skills and core cricketing values, with tactical knowledge now also at the forefront.
The youngsters will gain tips on how to prepare like the pros – leaving nothing left to chance and taking personal responsibility for kit, punctuality and being mentally ready to play.
