YOUTH COACHING FOR BOYS AND GIRLS

Paul Oakins, an ECB level 2+ coach, leads our coaching for 5-16 year olds.
Other coaches and helpers from the club will also be present.
Coaching sessions are held at Ickwell cricket ground.

When: Every Friday evening from 6 to 7.30 pm.
Starting April 26th 2019 and ending on July 19th 2019 with our youth
presentation evening.

Fees: Youth coaching is £35. (£50 for two children in the same family, £65 for three). A £1 attendance fee will be charged for every coaching session a child attends. There are no match fees for games. Youth players do need to be members of Ickwell Cricket Club to take part in the coaching and for insurance purposes. Youth membership is £10 per child or family membership can be taken out for £45. Ickwell Cricket Club cricket white shirts will be available to buy at a cost of £15 each.

Competitions: Ickwell has teams registered in the North Bedfordshire U15, U13 and U11 development competitions. U9s play friendly matches.
U15 matches will be held on Thursday evenings, U13 matches will be held on Tuesday evenings and U11 on Sunday mornings. If your child is selected to play, we do ask them to wear an Ickwell white shirt.

Facilities: We have all the cricket equipment children will need, but request that children in U11s and above have their own box.

For Friday evening training parents are very welcome to stay. The club and bar will be open, tea and coffee will be available and there’s Wifi in the club house and all major sports channels.

Success in 2018
Ickwell’s youth teams achieved terrific results in 2018. The U13s won their league and won their semi-final against Henlow. They only lost one game all season - the final v Lutonians U13s. The U9s finished 2nd in their league, losing only to Bedford and the U15s finished a very creditable third. Several players have moved up the player pathway and have been picked for County age group trials and summer squads.
