Junior cricket will start again at the beginning of May 2019 with sessions until school break in July and be starting again at the end of August on Saturday mornings. Session times are: U11s: 10h-11h and U16s: 11h-13h. All equipment is provided, and all are welcome - including beginners Contact Andrew Macintyre,  for more details. 

Junior Cricket at Standard is organised at the under 11 and under 16 level. U11s play an adapted, faster form of the game that encourages teamwork and participation and doesn’t require any protective equipment. U16s progress on to play traditional cricket.

At any level your children won't need any special clothing or cricket gear. The SAC cricket section has very generously bought cricket gear and training aids adapted for small hands, so children don't need to bring any gear unless they have some already. This applies to U16s as well: SAC provides all protective equipment, including helmets.

This activity is run by players from the Senior Cricket Section of the Club.

Fees

Junior Cricket fees cover the cost of the equipment, the obligatory France Cricket Junior Licence, and a special piece of cricket clothing.

Cricket News - May 2019 - Introducing Cricket to French children

The Cricket Section has been working with teachers from a local school, the Institut Notre Dame, to organise a practical extension to the classes they have had recently on the sport. The first sessions were held during the week of the 13th May and tournaments took place this last week so the children could put their newly acquired skills into practice. See the main article for photos and the children's 'Thank-you' cards.
