The club offers cricket coaching for children and young people aged 7 (Year 3) to 16, from England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) qualified coaches. Our U11, U13 & U15 junior teams compete in the Saxon Shore League, and play friendly matches throughout the season. Our very first girls team launched in 2022, and a fabulous group of players age 8 – 15 now train together each week.
Junior training is on Sunday mornings from mid April – September. Players in Year 5 and above train from 10am – 12noon, while players in Years 3&4 train from 10.30 -11.30. Training costs £3 per session for Years 5 and above, £2 per session for Years 3 & 4, pay per session. All players who attend 5 sessions or more receive free junior club membership.
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. Young players are welcome to join us for an introduction and free taster session on sunday mornings: contact firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

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.
