Youth training will take place at the Cricket Club during the summer months, usually starting after the children return to School following the Easter School Holidays. All training sessions are open to both boys and girls, with the exception of the Dynamos cricket which is an exclusive girls offering.
All youth members are encouraged to attend the Friday club night where cricket will be organised for all age groups. The Under 11 and Under 13s have additional training nights allocated (see below).
