Somerset Cricket Board announce Winter Coaching Programme
The Somerset Cricket Board are pleased to announce the launch of their Winter Cricket Coaching Programmes.
A wide range of courses are on offer to suit those who are taking their first steps into the game, looking to develop as a cricketer, or looking to have fun playing cricket.
Courses will begin on Thursday October 1st with the Junior 4s & 6s programme. This is a fun and exciting eight week course designed for children aged 4 to 6 and gives players a fun, first experience of cricket.
On November 7th the Winter Development Programme returns. Last winter saw 170 young players benefit from this programme and places are expected to go quickly once again this year. This initiative follows the model of Somerset Cricket Board’s highly successful county age group system and enables players from all over Somerset to benefit. Three courses have been scheduled this year at The Centre of Excellence (Taunton), Merchant’s Academy (Bristol) and Writhlington Sports Centre (BANES). The ten week programme has four separate age group sessions; 6 to 8 (Taunton Only), 9 to 10, 11 to 12 and 13 to 15. The programme will nurture the skills of cricketers across Somerset and will provide players with the opportunity to develop their understanding of the game whilst developing the player’s technical, tactical, physical and mental skills.
The hugely popular One to One coaching programme will restart on October 5th at The County Ground, Taunton. This programme enables players from eight years old to be coached in a personal environment by experienced and expert Somerset coaches who are qualified to a high level and able to work on all aspects of a player’s game.
Finally, following the success of this summer’s Ashes Academies, the Somerset cricket board have selected three further dates for your cricketing calendar (Monday December 21st, Tuesday December 22nd, and Wednesday December 23rd). Academies will again take place at both Wellsway Sports Centre, Keynsham and The Centre of Excellence, Taunton. There will be Academies for both the 6-9 and 10-12 age group, with prizes to be won and all participants will receive a t-shirt thanks to our sponsors Somerset County Sports
