Half Term Clubs
Guernsey Cricket offers a variety of courses during the school holidays from Tots Cricket to representative training. Cricket is a team sport that offers opportunities for children to get social, make friends and practise working within a team. The experience can improve a child’s social skills, including cooperation and communication, and can help them develop a shared love for the sport with other like-minded kids.
Guernsey Cricket Schools Coaching Programme
Guernsey Cricket Schools Coaching Programme sessions are open to players of all abilities and experience.
Tots Cricket is a new initiative to Guernsey Cricket which aims to introduce the fun and energy of cricket to groups of girls and boys from 2 1/2 – 5 years old. Learning cricket skills can help kids develop their physical fitness in a friendly environment and develop essential fine motor skills, improve endurance and stamina, increase balance and coordination and improve hand-eye coordination. Parents and siblings also get involved with the session to ensure all the little cricketers get the best experience.
