Junior Cricket

Avoncroft Cricket Club has a thriving youth section, and we are currently offering coaching for children from the ages of 5-14 (From reception to Year 9).


For ages 5-9 (reception to Year 4), the club offers a coaching opportunity:
-          The club runs its own club coaching for children aged 5-9 on Friday evenings from 6pm to 7pm, and takes part in softball cricket festivals at Under 8 and Under 9 age groups.  This coaching provides a fun introduction into cricket in a safe and relaxed environment.  We welcome boys and girls, with or without any previous experience, and aim to develop in them a love of the game whilst beginning to introduce the basic techniques and skills they will need if they choose to continue playing in the future.
-          Boys and girls can register for our coaching described above.  For our coaching programme, we would encourage children to simply come along for a couple of weeks to see if they enjoy it rather than needing to register and pay up front.  Contact details are shown below, however you are welcome to simply come along to our Friday evening sessions which will start (weather permitting) on 26th April 2019.


For ages 10-13 (Years 5-9), the club offers coaching opportunities:
The club offers a coaching programme on Friday evenings from 7pm to 8:30pm.  Again this is open to boys and girls, and no previous cricketing experience is required.  New members are encouraged to come along on a Friday evening and join in.  The club runs sides at Under 10's right through to Under 14's , with games on Sunday mornings and midweek evenings.

Our 2019 training groups will be as follows:
