Until recently Shoreham Cricket Club ran very successful Sunday morning coaching sessions for over 20 years to a mix of age-groups. Sadly, with increasingly stringent qualification requirements for coaches, we are still unable to offer coaching at our ground for the last 3 years.
Last year we struck an arrangement with Horton Kirby CC, thanks to their Chairman, Gordon Watts, to enable Shoreham boys and girls to attend Sunday morning coaching sessions at their ground, under the watchful eye of two England Cricket Board (ECB) Level 2 qualified coaches. Parents please note that part of the coaching qualification process does include DBS checking.
The coaching sessions cater for 5-15 year olds organised into at least 2 groups. No previous experience of the game is necessary.
- Sunday mornings 09.30-11.00 hrs
- Coaching fee £2.50 per attendee per session
- 3 bays of practice nets, bowling machine, plenty of coaching and Kwik cricket kit.
Breakfast, tea & coffee for parents is available to parents who wish to stay, and maybe wish to read the Sunday paper.
Directions to ground are below. 15 minutes by car. It may be feasible to organise ‘car pools’ amongst parents.
‘No poaching’ is assured, so this arrangement is aimed to provide continuity for Shoreham CC.
If you have a child or children who are interested please email Nick Walker at email@example.com. If there are any parents willing to help with organisational arrangements, then please do let me know as well.
From Shoreham Station take the A225 through Eynsford, turn left at the A20 and then follow the A225 towards Dartford. Take the first turning on the right (Franks Lane) and cross the river – you will then find the ground on your right.
