The club offers cricket coaching for children and young people up to the age of 16, from England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) qualified coaches. Our junior teams compete in the Saxon Shore League, and play friendly matches throughout the season.
Junior training is from 10am – 12noon on Sunday mornings from mid April – September, and costs £2 per session. Children train in age and ability appropriate groups, with fun exercises and mini games for younger children, and hard ball coaching for older players. Cricket equipment is provided, and we welcome complete beginners as well as more experienced young cricketers. Come along on a Sunday morning to try a free taster session, or get in touch if you have any questions.
We run a cafe for parents and spectators during junior training, and welcome the involvement of parents and friends in the club as volunteers. Volunteering roles range from a few hours helping out at club events, to junior team managers, committee and coaching positions.
We support the training for anyone interested in working towards a coaching or umpiring qualification. If you enjoy cricket, have had some playing experience, and have a few hours available during cricket season, talk to us about joining our coaching team.

Welfare and Safeguarding
We want our club to be an inclusive, safe and welcoming place for people of all ages and abilities. We expect members and guests to treat others with courtesy and respect, and to maintain standards of behaviour appropriate to a family environment.
We are committed to ensuring all children participating in sport in our club have a safe and positive experience. Our coaches and volunteers undertake appropriate checks and safeguarding training, we ask parents and players to commit to codes of conduct, and we have confidential reporting procedures for raising and managing safeguarding concerns.
If you are concerned that a child or vulnerable adult at our club is at risk of harm, or have any safeguarding questions or concerns, please contact our Club Welfare Officer Rachel Gainsford on 07952 671382 or firstname.lastname@example.org
