Our fantastic Development Programme is back for the 2018/19 winter.

The programme follows the model of our highly successful county age group system and is specifically designed to be age and ability appropriate to help develop young cricketers.

To maximise the benefit to players and to increase accessibility we are running four courses at the Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton and three at Merchants Academy, South Bristol.

The purpose of the course is to improve the standard of young players in Somerset and provide them with greater opportunities to succeed in school, club, district and county age group cricket.

The courses will:

  • provide children in School Years 2 – 10 with an appropriate course for their age and ability, at a suitable time of the year
  • nurture the skills of young cricketers and give them the opportunity to fulfil their potential
  • provide players with the opportunity to develop their cricket skills and understanding of the game, encouraging a lifelong passion for cricket to grow
  • develop players technical, tactical, physical and mental skills
  • ensure players have the best opportunity to improve by keeping player : coach ratios at a maximum of 6 : 1
