The England & Wales Cricket Board
(ECB) is now into its third year of its new grassroots programme
for five- to eight-year-olds, with the aim to get 50,000 more
youngsters participating in the game next summer - and the great
news is that Sway Cricket Club will again be playing a full part in
delivering the scheme!
All Stars Cricket is an eight-week course (10 weeks at
Sway for the price of 8!) that will be introduced in May
through local cricket clubs and centres, offering youngsters a
first experience of the sport. Children will receive a backpack
of cricket gear, while participating clubs will be given kit to
deliver the programme and training for volunteers.
will be on Saturday mornings at Jubilee Field from 9.30-11am
from 1TBA May.
Sway's AllStars cricket in 2018 was a tremendous success with
over 45 boys and girls having great fun supervised by our super
All Stars activator and his team of helpers. We will be hoping
to welcome back both familiar and new children in 2019 with the
the changes proposed to the U9s setup (see U9s page) making it
easy for AllStars to move up as soon as they feel ready.
