WELCOME TO CUMNOR BEARS YOUTH SECTION

Our juniors train on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings throughout the cricket season depending on age group.

5-7s All Stars Cricket (Reception to year 2). Fridays 5.00pm to 6.00pm 14th May until 16th July.

U9s Dynamos cricket (years 3 and 4) – Fridays 6.15pm to 7.30pm. 23rd April until 16th July.

U11s (years 5 and 6) – Wednesdays 5.30pm to 6.30pm. 21st April until 14th July.

U13s (years 7 and 8) – Wednesdays 6.45pm to 7.45pm. 21st April until 14th July.

U15s and U17s (years 9 to 12) – Thursdays 5.30pm to 7.00pm 22nd April until 15th July.

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 Pathway trials at the end of the season.

We have a very successful and constantly growing junior section and enter junior cricket teams into competitions at all age groups from U9s right up to U17. We pride ourselves on the strength of our junior cricket and are regularly county champions in one league or another. 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.

Dynamos Cricket

New Dynamos Cricket launched for 2021

We are delighted to announce that in 2021 we have chosen to take part in the new ECB National Programme called Dynamos Cricket. This comes with a match play focussed game, Countdown Cricket, as well as hopefully the enjoyment and fun and more experienced through All Stars and Kwiks at Cumnor CC.

This scheme will replace what has for many years been the Kwik Cricket programme. Like Kwiks it is aimed primarily at school years 3 and 4, any year 2s who already have a couple of seasons of All Stars experience, but now both dovetailing with All Stars and providing a ‘way-in’ to cricket for children up to the age of 10.

At Cumnor we are hugely excited to be taking part in this action packed and fun filled opportunity, with its new competitive format of Countdown Cricket. Our thirteen sessions are planned to start on Friday 23rd April and will run between 6.15 and 7.30pm. Upon signing up, your child will receive a personalised Dynamos T Shirt, and all kit will be supplied by Cumnor CC.

More details are provided in the Dynamos section below (beneath the All Stars section).

Reception to Year 2

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 two sessions of All Stars cricket as follows:

10 week programme

Friday evenings from 5.15pm to 6.15pm (Now fully booked)

From: May 14 2021
To: July 16 2021

Cost: £50. Free kit bag.

Please note the ECB website defaults to an 8 week programme – we are running a 10 week programme even though it states 8 weeks when you sign up.
