On 7th February we began our winter training sessions with the younger members of the club. The emphasis of these sessions was to firstly reintroduce the kids to cricket following the winter break but then to build up their skills and enjoyment prior to the formal start of the 2015 season.
The club now have a settled group of qualified coaches and we now are able to provide a more individually based training programme to suit the needs of each young player. The overall principle is to try to keep it fun but to also introduce these players into structured training, including fitness, and to encourage them to take some responsibility for their own development. We look to support our kids as coaches but hope that they can look to form their own ideas on how to enjoy and improve their game, even at this young age.
Thanks to all the kids and coaches who have again made this five week programme a great success.
