All Stars Cricket – the biggest youth initiative to be introduced in the UK is back for 2019.

All Stars Cricket, the biggest youth initiative to be introduced in the UK, is back for 2019.

The scheme is designed to provide a fun and inspirational first taste of cricket for five to eight year olds and 50 of the county’s clubs have signed up to run the programme this year.

The nationwide initiative – which has been created by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) – enables children to acquire the skills to play the game and connect with England’s cricketing heroes.

All Stars Cricket offers eight weeks of coaching in a safe and inclusive environment, with the focus on having fun and making friends.

All girls and boys are welcome, and each registered child will receive a pack of cricket goodies so that they can continue their love of cricket when they go home. The pack includes: a cricket bat, ball, backpack, water bottle, personalised shirt and cap. Children involved in previous years will receive different kit, including a set of stumps.

All Stars Cricket will provide your child with all the fundamental skills that they will need to play the game through lively, fun games.

Over the course of the eight-week programme, the trained activators will teach your child to:

  • Catch and throw a ball
  • Hit a moving ball
  • Bowl with a straight arm
  • Play a basic game of cricket
  • Work and communicate as a team
  • Have lots of fun with new friends

All Stars Cricket is also fantastic for parents. For an hour each week all mums and dads are invited to get involved and play cricket with their children. This is a great way to spend time with your child and create memories that will last a lifetime.

To register your child, go to https://www.ecb.co.uk/play/all-stars and search for your nearest centre by entering your postcode.
