Cricket Newfoundland and Labrador is running a Junior Cricket Programme again in 2019.
Twice/week from June 26 – August 31, 2019.
Fridays: 5.30 pm – 6.45 pm & Sundays: 6.00 pm – 7.15 pm
– For ages 8-14 (Boys and Girls)
– Supported by the City of St. John’s
– No experience or background required and all equipment supplied
– Locations: MacDonald Drive School and RCAF field, off Torbay Road
– Fee: $40 per kid (reduced from $80 thanks to support from the City of St. John’s and our sponsors, Polyamyna)
Sessions are planned to run twice a week, with a Friday coaching and practice session and weekend matches. The target age group is ages 8-14, boys and girls welcome. No experience or background is required.
No equipment is required- participants should wear comfortable clothing for outdoors athletic exercise. A hat and sunscreen is however essential, particularly on bright days.
The programme is based on the Cricket Canada Kids programme and the English Cricket Board’s Kwik cricket programme. Cricket Canada KIDS introduces Canadian children to cricket in a fun and safe environment. The program adheres to recommended Sport Canada guidelines for FUN-damental movement skills and Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L).
Depending on numbers we may split the kids into a younger/ beginner group and an older advanced group. most work will be done with a tennis ball or soft rubber kwik cricket ball, rather than a hard senior cricket ball in order to ensure a safe environment.
Coaching will be from our experienced coaches who have been running the cricket in schools programme this year, with assistance from players from the high performance programme.
