Until recently Shoreham Cricket Club ran its own 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 have been unable to offer coaching at our ground for the last 3 years.
This summer we shall again continue the 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 first session will be held on Sunday 29th April 2018 at Horton Kirby’s ground. It is hoped that some of the coaching sessions this year will take place at Shoreham’s ground.
The coaching will 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 Horton Kirby’s 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
