Super 1s is a brand new Lord Taverners funded initiative that is launching in Somerset. A weekly inclusive cricket club in multiple locations for young people aged 12-25 years
Somerset Cricket Board is delighted to announce the launch of Super 1s across the County. Over the next two years we hope to have Super 1 weekly cricket sessions taking place in Bath, Bridgwater, Frome, Glastonbury/Street, Taunton, Weston Super Mare & Yeovil.
Super 1 sessions are weekly (term time only) aimed at young people aged 12-25 years of age with a mild/moderate learning difficulties, or with a physical disability.
The sessions are fun, played with a softer ball and will teach the basics of cricket! Super 1s will not only improve an individual’s cricketing ability, but also their social and lifelong learning skills. We also hope to allow young people to take on leadership roles!
In addition, a big element of Super 1s is competition. With multiple Super 1 sessions across the County, I hope to bring them all together on regular occasions (during the school holidays) so they can ‘compete’ against other Super 1 clubs in safe, friendly and supportive environment! We hope to recognise young people’s attendance and commitment to their weekly session by rewarding them with Super 1s T-shirts for their attendance at a set number of sessions.
The sessions are free to attend and are led by a qualified cricket coach and supported by staff who hold valid DBS certificates. All equipment is provided. Read some of the feedback we have received about our sessions?
