At the moment you will all be aware that Warwick school Sports Hall remains closed to the public, meaning our normal junior winter coaching is at the moment not going ahead.We hope that this changes either before or after Christmas but in the meantime please see the below opportunities being offered to some age groups at Edgbaston. If you can take advantage of any it would greatly assist in your child’s development, as continued coaching throughout the winter can really help be better prepared for next summer.

Mini Bears (5-8 year olds)

There are a few places still available for the Mini Bears who meet on a Saturday morning from 9am-10am at the Edgbaston Cricket Centre from 9th October through to Christmas.

These are group sessions where the coaches will concentrate on basic motor skills such as catching, throwing, batting and bowling.

It will be £7 a week and these need to be booked and paid for online to confirm your slot.

Hardball Course (8-11 year olds)

In November, we will be running a 6 week Hardball course which will be aimed at children from 8 to 11 years old. During the course they will be able to familiarise themselves with playing with a hardball and work on their batting bowling and fielding. It is suggested that players will have to bring their own batting equipment and bring their own hard cricket ball with them to use.

The hour and a half sessions will be £15 each and will be on Saturday mornings from 10.30 to 12pm

The dates will be November 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th and December 5th and 12th.
