In 2019 we are starting to build our junior section, taking children as young as four, we will be running coaching every single Monday night from the start of May!
The Mini O’s will run from 5.30-6.15 pm this will be a fun high impact introduction to cricket. (4-6 year olds)
The Young O’s 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 will run from 6.15-7.45 pm for the 9-11 age group 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.
The Giant O’s (Aged 12-15) 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.
All sessions will be 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.
