EWELL CRICKET CLUB JUNIOR SECTION
Our Junior section has been growing since it was formed in 2010. It now has 80-90 juniors of various ages from 6 to 17 with the older members playing in the adult teams.
During the summer we have weekly coaching sessions on Thursday evenings at our large ground. The juniors are split into different age groups, each assigned one or more coaches for their group, as well as some specialised coaching for one or two at a time with our experience player coaches.
We also have a number of matches against other clubs taking place at various times through the week.
Plan for 2019
For 2019 we will be entering three sides into the West Surrey Youth Cricket League:
Under 13 will play in the Main Hardball league
Under 11 ‘Yellows’ will play in the Main Hardball League
Under 11 ‘Blues’ will play in the Development Hardball League
We will also arrange friendly games for the less experienced players in the Under 13 age group as well as for the younger players; especially the Under 9s.
We will have 8 of our own qualified coaches for 2019 as well as using one Professional Coach and a senior player coach. If any of our parents want to take up coaching or become a coaching assistant please contact one of the committee. All fees are paid for by the club. We just want you to commit the time.
During the winter we have the use of the sports hall at Ewell Castle School with four indoor nets for the juniors aged 10 upwards who are using hard balls. Most coaches have been available every week and we have had on average 20 children attending.
We will again be running various social events during the year. These are a key part of the club calendar that everybody enjoys, kids and adults alike. We usually have a few barbecues and an Awards Evening. Other events have included a quiz night and a very successful wine tasting evening; all run by volunteers to raise funds for the club.
