Junior Coaching

Getting youngsters interested in playing cricket is very important to us. We run coaching throughout the year for our Junior members. We also host junior cricket camps during the school holidays. We are very proud that five of our youngsters have represented the county.

Junior coaching takes place on a Monday night. In 2016 the sessions start after the Easter hoildays on Monday April 18th and run unti August 22nd (excluding Bank Holidays).

The Junior membership fee for 2106 will be set at our AGM in February but as a guide in 2015 it was £30. All of the above sessions are covered by the membership. If your child wants to come along and see if they like it first that’s fine, the first two weeks will be considered free tasters.

Martin Eeles will also be running his holiday cricket camps again in 2016. Two or the camps run over two days and between 10am to 1pm (cost £35) and this year he has added a three day camp, again 10am-1pm on each day (cost £50). They will take place on the following dates;

Easter Cricket Camp: 5th and  6th April.

First summer camp:  26th, 27th and 28th July.

Second summer camp: 16th and 17th August.

If you have a son or daughter who is interested in coming along to any of the above please contact Darren Hughes on 07881818047 or email dhughes@alphacrc.com

The club also have a Child Welfare Officer, Jane Van de Peer. You can find out more about how Jane got involved with the club by clicking here

The club has a range of branded kit for Juniors that is avalable to buy from the Mr Cricket Shop in Burwell. Please note your child does not need to wear club kit when playing or practicing for Chippenham. Obviously if possible we would like as many players as we can to be wearing club kit and would ask you to consider the club branded kit when making a purchase. However, we recognise this may not always be possible or practical, in particular when players are just starting or they already have purchased their kit. This is not a problem and it is far from essential to where the club branded kit when playing. If you want to view the club kit and find out how to purchase it please click here
