Waringstown Cricket Club will again be staging a Junior Coaching Programme for its younger members on a Monday night. As ever utilising the club professional Hazeeb Azam and a number of the senior players. The programme will run over 12 weeks commencing on Monday 13th May and running until the 12th August (except the 12th fortnight).

Start times - All age groups will begin at 6.45pm. The finishing times for each year group are stated below.

  • Primary 3 8.15pm
  • Primary 4 & 5 8.15pm
  • Primary 6 & 7 8.15pm
  • U11/U13/U15 (Wayne, Reuben, Peter, Simon & David /Adam & Lees group) 8.30pm

Please note: Your child must currently be in Primary 3 at the time of the programme beginning. Those going into Primary 3 in September or younger will not be accepted onto the 2019 programme.

As it was last year the under 15 group will continue to train with the Under 13 group on a Monday night. There are a number of reasons for this but mainly as the majority of the Under 13 members will be playing for the Under 15s, it made sense to merge the two for training purposes and have 4 expert coaches working with them. The Under 15s is the penultimate junior squad before entering into senior cricket and thus weve taken the step to have as much one on one coaching made available to them to assist in their development. It will also allow our coaches to use their own expertise more effectively when working as a smaller group.

The club have decided to place a maximum amount of children that can sign up to the programme. This allows our coaches to deliver an even higher standard of training to our young players based on a knowledge of the size of group they will be working with on a weekly basis. Consequently, each group will be weighted to a maximum of 25 young people per group. Similar to last year, there will be an overflow group for the Primary 4 & 5 group due to demand. Note: This weighting does not apply to Reuben, Peter & Wayne/Simon & David/Adam & Lees group

The cost for the Junior Coaching programme remains at 40 per child. If there are more than 1 child from the same family attending, the cost will remain at 20 per additional child. The registration evening will take place on Monday 29th April 2019 from 7.00pm 8:00pm. We would strongly recommend attending, so you can ensure that your child/children can obtain a place.

NOTE Due to public holidays, there will be no Junior sessions taking place on Monday 8th July 2019 or Monday 15th July 2019.
