We welcome both boys and girls of all abilities. Our juniors train in all disciplines and aspects of cricket and this enables them to represent the club in junior league and cup matches throughout the summer with some of the stronger players being nominated to attend the OCB County Cricket trials at the end of the season.

We have a very successful and constantly growing junior section and enter junior cricket teams at all age groups from Kwik Cricket right up to U17. We pride ourselves on the strength of our junior cricket and currently have County champions in two age groups (Kwiks and U15s). This is a testament not only to the strength and depth of our junior cricket but also an indication of how good our coaching is at the club. Many of our junior coaches have come through the junior ranks at the club themselves so can appreciate how important good, programmed training is and they enjoy passing on their love of cricket to the next generation.

Our older boys and girls are also encouraged get the chance to play adult league cricket on Saturdays. Our very popular SAS team (Sunday afternoon side) is a great way in to ‘adult cricket’.

The basis of all our coaching is encouragement and fun and in a welcoming and progressive atmosphere. There is lots of cricket on offer and you can choose to do as little or as much as you wish.

We are always looking for help running teams and organizing matches and assisting the junior programme so if you are able to help please contact us.

All Stars Cricket

All Stars Cricket is a highly successful initiative started in 2017 from the England and Wales Cricket Board aimed at providing children in reception to Year 3 (ages 5-8yrs) with a great first experience in cricket. The programme is delivered across England and Wales. It is a fun and active way to develop your child’s skills, and through our 10 week programme they will learn lots – as well as make new friends – in a safe and inclusive environment.

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.

Cumnor CC will be running All Stars cricket as follows:

10 week programme

Friday evenings from 5.15pm to 6.15pm

From: May 15th, 2020

To: July 17th, 2020

Summer Academies

Cumnor Cricket Club – Summer Academy

At Cumnor CC we run Summer Cricket Academies during the school summer holidays for members and non members of the club – usually in the age range 6 to 13 Years old.

Children usually book for the full week to get the most out of the coaching, skills and match progression throughout the week.

If space is available we can organize partial week bookings or taster days for those who are new to cricket or the club.

The Academy weeks are open to both non-members and members. The cost of a weekly course is £150 per child. Bookings for less than 5 days are charged at £35 per day.

In 2020 junior members of Cumnor CC (Kwiks and above) will receive a 10% discount off a full weeks booking.

The academies run for full days from 9am to 3.45pm and children are split into groups based on age and ability.

The younger members – School Year 4 and below play Kwik cricket with a soft ball and need no special kit. The main focus is to develop key cricket skills, drills and match play in an encouraging and fun atmosphere.

Older children will benefit from all round skill development and the use of the clubs nets and grounds as well as match play.
In 2020 we will limit the number of younger attendees (years 4 and below) in week 3 so that we can increase provision for hardball coaching for years 5 and above.

All is overseen by our lead Youth Coach, his team of qualified coaches and experienced players.

Our Cricket academy dates are marketed outside the club from around Easter time each year and book up very quickly – so it is advisable to reserve spaces as early as possible to secure your preferred dates as we are limited to how many children we can take each week.

If you are a member of Cumnor Cricket Club with an account on myClubhouse/CumnorCC you can book directly by going to the ‘Links’ page of the website and clicking on ‘myClubhouse’

All others should first register for an account on our membership system above, apply for a ‘Guest Membership – junior subscription’, search events for the week required and then book the week required.

If you need further information about the Academies contact us at : cumnorcricket@gmail.com

Summer Academy weeks for 2020.

Week 1: July 20th 2020

Week 2: July 27th 2020

Week 3: August 3rd 2020 (This week will be particularly weighted to hardball cricketers from year 5 and above)

Academy feedback

 

  • Both boys had a fantastic week at Cumnor and all I can ask is that you thank all the coaches for providing such a brilliant week. I had two very tired, happy boys fall into bed every night! Many thanks and we look forward to more next year!
  • Our son enjoyed the second week’s Academy and said it was good with no need of improvement.
  • Our Son had a fantastic week and absolutely loved it (as he did last year). The coaches all seem great with the kids. He is already asking if he can do it next year!
  • Only positive feedback from us. He really enjoyed every bit of it and would definitely like to come back.
  • Both boys thoroughly enjoyed last week at the academy. I don’t think there were any adverse comments at all. When we collected them each day it was obvious that they had learnt a lot and were very happy. Please give our thanks to the coaches who are obviously terrific
  • My Son loved the camp – brilliant in all ways! He will really miss his cricket when the training ends this week.  Thanks to you and all the coaches for a fab week!
  • Yes, thank you, he had a super time. I think he would happily spend week after week at cricket academy! We would be very interested in booking again for next summer.
  • The boys enjoyed the cricket academy last week. I thought it was really well organised – including the admin! – and it was nice that the Head Coach was around. Quite often on summer camps all the helpers are very young – not a problem in itself, but it is good as a parent to see that there is an older person in charge. So all in all a great experience and we look forward to next year.
  • Both of my sons enjoyed the week, and have asked to return next year.
  • He thoroughly enjoyed the course. He found the coaches enthusiastic, fun and helpful. He wants to do the course /weekly training again next year please.

 

 

Both of my sons enjoyed the week, and have asked to return next year.
