After an incredible summer of cricket, the ECB have launched Dynamos Cricket, a new, and exciting programme for 8-11 year olds.
The new programme makes cricket accessible for everyone. It is the perfect place for children to begin on their cricket journey, but also as the next step for those who have finished All Stars cricket.
What is Dynamos Cricket?
After researching exactly what it is that children want from sport, 4 key themes were identified: fun, competence, confidence and being able to understand the benefits. And that is what we at Somerset, along with the ECB aim to bring with this new programme.
- A national programme (details to follow about finding your nearest centre)
- For anyone aged eight to eleven
- Eight 60 – 90 minute sessions, held over eight weeks
- Fun sessions, where skills are learned and developed
- A game each week, where new skills can be applied
- New format cricket
- Easy online registration
- Includes a personalised New Balance t-shirt
- Safe and fully accredited- delivered by Dynamo Activators
- Playing with wooden bats.
- Money can’t buy experiences
Countdown Cricket. What is this new format?
