Junior Coaching at Guildford Cricket Club

 

Guildford CC offers a vast programme of Junior Cricket, which is supported by excellent facilities, and a junior coaching programme delivered by ECB qualified coaches, which is second to none.

All of the coaching is linked to individual player development plans and the Guildford Player Pathway, ensuring all abilities are encouraged to grow, develop and succeed at their own rate.

The Club provides cricket for juniors aged 5 and above, with coaching sessions held at the Club’s main ground, Woodbridge Road and pre-season at RGS Guildford.

Girls are invited to their age group sessions as well as the session between 10.00 – 10.50. New players are welcome at all sessions.

Sessions must be pre-booked with all relevant boxes completed. An email will be sent confirming the booking. If, subsequently, you are unable to attend, please cancel your booking online. Due to COVID restrictions, each session will be limited to 15 places. Bookings will be on a week by week basis. If the session you are trying to book is full and oversubscribed, you will be placed on a waiting list which will give you a priority booking opportunity for the following week.

Please do not attend if anyone in your household is showing signs of COVID-19 infection. These are described as follows:

  • A high temperature.
  • A new or continuous cough.
  • A loss or change to your sense of taste or smell.

Notes:

  • Due to COVID-19 Tier 2 restrictions, it will not be possible for parents or carers to watch the sessions from the viewing area.
  • Drop off and pick up will be from outside the Sports Hall.
  • There will be a QR poster on site which we would ask you to scan for Test and Trace purposes.
  • Please look to arrive no earlier than five minutes before your session.  If you arrive earlier, please remain in your car.
  • Please pick up and vacate the site promptly at the end of training to facilitate the safe arrival of the next group.
  • We are aiming for single use balls, so please can the participants carry a marked ball with their kit.
  • There will be no sharing of kit, so players in the age group of Under 10 and over should have their own protective equipment, including helmets.
  • There is no parking on site; public parking is nearby.
