The Young O’s session will run from 5.30-6.30 pm and this will be working on the basics of batting, bowling and fielding and an introduction to playing some fun softball matches at the end of the lessons (6-8 year olds).

The Middle O’s session will run from 6.15-7.45 pm where we will be working on match play, batting and bowling and fielding with it leading to playing both soft and hard ball matches dependent on the child’s confidence (9-11 year olds).

The Giant O’s session will run from 6.30-8 pm and this will be a combination of both Nets Game Scenarios, Batting Bowling and Fielding Drills and wicket keeping drills for would be keepers. With ‘Hard Ball’ matches against teams in the area also played during this time when available (12-15 year olds).

All sessions will be run by our dedicated team of Level 2 coaches assisted by Level 1 “Parent” Coaches.
