The Charlton Down Youth cricket season is just around the corner and i thought it was a good time to give you some information about indoor training and outdoor sessions!
Cameron and Pete Lucas and myself will be running the sessions. We have a further 6 players going through their first stage of their coaching badges at the end of March and you will see their faces during the outdoor sessions. Excellent news for the Club!
I hope i can again call on the occasional services of John Harrington, Barry Rossiter, Stuart Dipple and Craig Robinson during the season.
Indoor Coaching will be at The Thomas Hardye Sports Hall on Sunday 16th, 23rd, 30th March and 6th April from 4pm to 5.30pm. Sorry if times not good but St Os and TH are sharing out the “prime times” during the week and at weekends between other sports!
These dates will take us straight into the Outdoor Coaching Sessions which are as follows:
U11‘s will train on Wednesday’s 6.15 to 7.30pm starting 16th April and matches will be on a Monday – 6.15pm starts.
U13‘s will train on Monday’s 6.15 to 7.30pm starting on 14th April and matches will be on a Thursday – 6.15pm starts.
The league matches are dictated by the league and the training nights by available evenings at the ground.
We have entered a team in the U11’s and a team in the U13’s League. U11’s will reamin as “pairs” cricket but the U13’s will be 11 a side and the full rules will apply.
I have already mentioned to a few parents that we will be looking for some more U13’s age group – years 7 and 8. To ensure we have sufficient numbers for the season and not to rely on some of the older U11’s filling in. So if your sons or daughters have any friends who are interested in joining our Club please bring them along to coaching.
Some players will have been to District training during the winter and i hope they have all enjoyed this experience. Will enable them to hit the season running!
Please please pass the word and forward this email to any parent who may well be interested or if i have missed any parent.
The Year age groups that we are able to cope with are Years 3,4,5,6,7 and 8. Obviously the younger element will beable to play a few of the U9’s matches which i have arranged but as they get older will filter into the U11’s team.
Please pass on my contact details 01305 268172 or mobile 07810275847
Hope to see as many players as possible during the coaching weeks.
