Holiday Courses

Fun and inclusive group coaching sessions for various age groups during school holidays throughout the year.

School Holiday Courses

Each school holiday we run a number of courses for children in School Years 2 – 7. These courses involve a number of different cricket practises and games and are a great opportunity for players to improve their skills. The courses are delivered by our full-time community coaches who are experts in delivering enjoyable and engaging sessions to children.

All courses take place in the indoor school at The Centre of Excellence, Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton, TA1 IJT.

SUMMER 2021 GIRLS’ HARDBALL CRICKET CAMPS

Opportunities for girls only hard ball cricket is limited, especially if you are not in the County Pathway or play for a girls only hard ball team.  Therefore, we are keen to try and facilitate a number of hard ball opportunities for girls outside of the pathway programme to play against other girls this Summer.

Girls MUST have had experience of playing hardball cricket and be confident and competent to keep themselves safe when bowling and batting with a hardball. Players must have and bring their own equipment.

U11 – players to be in year 5 or 6
U12 – players to be in year 5, 6 or 7
U13 – players to be in year 7 or 8
U14 – players to be in year 8 or 9

These opportunities to play are not suitable for girls in the Pathway (unless invited advised by the County Pathway Manager) or the County age groups. These groups of girls will have opportunities to play already.

If you have any questions about Girls Hardball Cricket Camp please get in contact – colette.gooding@somersetcricketfoundation.org
