Compton and Chandlers Ford Cricket Club - Junior Information

Junior Information

I hope you have all had a great Christmas and I wish you a Happy New Year. We can now look forward to the 2019 cricket season.

In 2019 we will be running teams at Under 9, Under 11, Under 13 (two teams) and Under 15 in the Winchester League and Cup Competitions                                                                                                                                                                           

Winter Coaching sessions for 2019 will be held at Thornden School Sports Hall. Please note that due to ongoing issues with the structural safety of Thornden Hall, some School events have been moved to the Sports Hall, meaning our normal schedule of training will be disrupted. Where the Sports Hall is not available, the School Gym will be used (a very short walk from the Sports Hall). However, this will only be suitable for U9 and U11 Sessions.

Tracksuits or cricket whites should be worn and non-marking trainers.  Juniors should bring a drink with them. All Under 9 sessions will involve a tennis ball or incrediball, which does not necessitate protective equipment. Under 11’s, 13’s and 15’s will be required to bring all usual kit and equipment, as some sessions will involve the hardball (apart from U11 Gym sessions which will be soft ball only).

Looking forward to the Summer Months, we are very pleased to announce that for the second Year, we are subscribed to the ECB backed All Star Cricket Scheme, aimed at introducing 5-8 Year Old’s to the game. Further Details will follow before the start of next Season. If you have Family members aged between 5 and 8 Years, then please bear this in mind for the coming Season.

This coming Year we are also actively encouraging our Older Colts to consider playing some games for our Adult 4th Team during the 2018 Season. Any Player aged 13 and over on 1st September 2018 is eligible to play for our Men’s Saturday Team, with Parental or Guardian Permission. It is a great environment to gain experience playing a slightly longer format. We will be canvassing players (and Parents) during the Winter Months to establish who would like to play.
