***New*** We will be at the clubhouse every Friday from 4th May through to 29th June. U11 home games will be scheduled for a Friday and we will also have 10 over games for parents v kids, parents v seniors, senior team etc plus Kwik Cricket for the children. Bar will be open and BBQ will be on weather permitting, from 6pm. A great way to spend some time with the kids after a long week at work whilst enjoying a drink and some food.
As always we need help from parents to ensure that the kids get the most out of their sessions, can you help with any of the following jobs?
All Stars Cricket Co-ordinator (full training given and funded), would suit someone with a child in the U8 / U10 age group
Team Managers (not onerous!)
Coaches Assistants (think crowd control!) needed for U10, U11 and U13 (no qualification needed)
Helping set up on a Sunday (just need to be at the square 20 minutes before training starts)
Square leg umpire
Social Secretary - trying to find ways of getting a real community feel at the club
Please get in touch if you can help at all, we would love for more parents to be involved, please contact Nicky on 07891 000 967 firstname.lastname@example.org you can help.
CALLING ALL BUDDING 5-7 YEAR OLD CRICKETERS
We are now part of the new ECB programme for All Stars Cricket for our younger members. Starting on Sunday May 7th at 10am at Cokenach.
Billed as the future of junior cricket, All Stars Cricket is a nationwide programme developed by the ECB and the Elite Coach Development team that aims to inspire 5 to 7 year olds to take up cricket at the club!
The programme will enable children to acquire the skills to play the game and connect them to the heroes of English cricket
