All Stars Cricket

All Stars Cricket is a new initiative from the England and Wales Cricket Board aimed at providing children aged five to eight with a great first experience in cricket.

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

More than 45 of the county’s clubs signed up to run the scheme in 2018– up from 2017 – which aims to provide a fun and inspirational first taste of cricket for 5-to-8-years-olds.

The nationwide programme – which has been created by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) – will enable children to acquire the skills to play the game and connect them to 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 including a cricket bat, ball, backpack, water bottle, personalised shirt and cap to keep, so that they can continue their love of cricket when they go home. Children involved in 2017 will receive different kit in year 2 including a set of stumps.

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

Over 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 a week all mums and dads are invited to get involved and play cricket with their children. We know this is a great way to spend time with your child and create memories that will last a lifetime.
