There is also a great emphasis on balance, agility and coordination.

The U'9s game is an adaptation of the full scale game called Pairs cricket. It allows all players to experience batting, bowling and fielding during every game. The training sessions are fun and educational and develop the fundamental skills required to be a successful cricketer.

In the second half of the season the under 11's follow the 20/20 format in preparation for future development into more senior teams. We develop individuals through enjoyable training sessions based on their qualities as cricketers. Batters, bowlers and all rounders. Not forgetting wicket keepers and fielders.
