Fun and inclusive group coaching sessions

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 holiday courses are delivered by our full-time community coaches who are experts in delivering enjoyable and engaging sessions to children.
