In May 2019 the junior section was started, taking children as young as four, with coaching sessions taking place every Monday night.
The Mini O’s session ran from 5.30-6.15 pm and was a fun high impact introduction to cricket (4-6 year olds).
The Young O’s session ran from 5.30-6.30 pm and worked 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 ran from 6.15-7.45 pm and worked on match play, batting and bowling and fielding, leading to playing both soft and hard ball matches dependent on the child’s confidence (9-11 year olds).
The Giant O’s session ran from 6.30-8 pm and was 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 are run by our dedicated team of Level 2 coaches assisted by Level 1 “Parent” Coaches.
We will be building sessions up so that we are ready to play in the junior leagues in the season of 2020, but for 2019 there will be plenty of opportunities to play friendly cricket against many teams within the local area.
