Cricket coaching for juniors aged between 8 and 15 (as at 31st August 2017) will commence, weather permitting, on Monday 10th April at the cricket ground, timings are as below:
- U9, U11 and U13 – 6pm to 7.30pm
- U15 – 6:45pm to 8:30pm.
We would like to encourage you to bring any potential new members to this first session. Sessions will be led by Andrew Jarvis. Andrew is an ECB level 2 coach with experience of running a junior club. The subscription for this year will be £50 for all ages for the season and will include any match fees. 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 10th 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.
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.
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
