Blast Batting

‘Blast Batting’ is a holiday coaching course where players will practise their batting skills through a mixture of fun activities and games. Players will get the opportunity to hit lots of balls in a safe and nurturing environment developing their ball striking and power. Most importantly players will have a fantastic time! The School Years 5, 6 & 7 course will include hard ball practise and players will need to bring all their cricket equipment. The School Years 2, 3 & 4 course will be softball.

The cost of the course is just £15 and will be delivered by our full-time community coaches who are experts in delivering fun and engaging sessions to children.

Girl’s Only Course

This is a GIRLS ONLY course for any girl in School Years 5, 6, 7 or 8. The girls will practise their cricket skills through a mixture of fun activities and games. Activities will use a soft ball (with hardball elements for those girls that it is suitable for) and will give players the opportunity to improve their batting, bowling, throwing and catching skills in a fun and friendly environment. The course will be delivered by our full-time community coaches who are experts in delivering fun and engaging sessions to children. Girls do not need to bring any equipment but are more than welcome to bring their bats if they would like. If they wish to participate in hard ball practise they will need to bring all the kit that they have (some kit can be provided). They also need to wear trainers and comfortable clothing (cricket whites are not necessary).

Powerplay Skills Day

Our ‘Powerplay Skills Day’ is a fantastic opportunity for players to practise and learn all the skills required to succeed in T20 cricket. Players will practise their batting, bowling and fielding skills before putting them to the test in games.

The course will include some hard ball practise (for appropriate players) and these players will need to bring all their cricket equipment.

The day will be delivered by our full-time community coaches who are experts in delivering enjoyable and safe sessions to children.

Players will need to bring plenty to drink, lunch and snacks as well as appropriate indoor clothing (cricket whites are not necessary).
