Youth Development


2017 Season 

The Club will be running 3 x junior sides in 2017 at an Under 11, Under 13 & Under 15 level.

New players of all ages and abilities are welcome. To be eligible to play in any of the sides above players need to be under the age limit on 1st September in the preceding year (For example: to be eligible to play for the Under 15 side in 2017, you must be under the age of 15 on 1st September in 2016)

Youth Membership fees: 

£30 for “first Child” plus a Family Social Membership fee of £10.  The fee is then reduced to £20 for every sibling that joins the club (under the age of 22)

Programme:

Indoor nets start on Sunday 5th March 11:00 am till 1:00pm through to Sunday 9th April (inclusive). Gecko cricket will be leading the coaching in these sessions. There is a fee of £2 per child to help cover the costs.

Outdoor nets will start late April (weather permitting). Friday night sessions for 2017 will also be lead by Gecko cricket, complimented by our club coaches and senior members of the club. The club strategy to increase the number of coaches in the club will continue over the next 2-3 years, to help bolster the numbers through the youth development programme and ‘Chance to Shine’ project through local schools.

All league games for the U11's and U15's start at 6.00pm, with the U11's playing on a Tuesday night and U15's on a Monday evening. The U13 team will play their games on a Sunday morning starting at 10.00am. All fixtures and dates appear in the Fixtures section on the club's website. Alternatively, 2017 fixture cards can be obtained at the club.
