All Stars Cricket (5-7 year olds)
If your child is 7 or below, please click here for information about All Stars Cricket, we do have spaces in each age group so do invite friends to come along on the 16th April to give Sherston cricket a try. We are keen to encourage more girls to be involved too, cricket is one of the fastest growing female sports.
We ask that children come dressed appropriately for sporting activity in cricket whites or a tracksuit. Those in groups playing with a hard ball must have their own box (and suitable underpants not boxers) and we strongly recommend they have their own helmet and bat, although we have some club ones that can be borrowed they may not be the correct size. We also have some pads that can be borrowed. Those playing in the mini section with a softer ball do not need to bring specialist equipment however their own bat would be preferable. The new outdoor nets will be available for the first time this summer – please note it is not permitted to use cricket spikes in the new nets.
The coaching sessions are weather dependent and if it is raining they will be automatically cancelled – if you are unsure please do join our Facebook page where will notify you of any weather disruption: www.facebook.com/groups/SMCCJuniors
Volunteers to help with coaching are very welcome, Andrew would be very happy to hold training sessions for anyone who is interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
