The Junior Cricket season started on Saturday 8 May and will run until the end of September.
Junior Cricket at the Standard is organised at the under 11 and under 16 level. U11s still play an adapted form of the game that doesn’t require any protective equipment, while U16s progress on to play traditional cricket.
As in 2020, this year's sessions will be organised in accordance with the France Cricket COVID protocols. This means that we will be focusing on individual skills for all players with strict social distancing, limited interactions between players. We hope to be able to hold fixtures with local clubs.

At any level, your children won't need any special clothing or cricket gear. The SAC cricket section has cricket gear and training aids adapted for small hands (this season we are lending kit so no one has to share), your child doesn't need to bring any gear unless they have some already.
This activity is run by players from the Senior Cricket Section of the Club.
