Junior Players - U11+

Junior Players


What we offer junior players

We provide the best cricket coaching programme and facilities for junior players in the region.  We have enthusiastic and competitive teams in all age groups and aim to develop junior cricketers into senior players with a life long love of the game.

We provide junior coaching sessions for the following age groups:

  • U11 (Years 5 & 6)
  • U13 (Years 7 & 8)
  • U15 (Years 9 & 10)
  • U19 (Years 11, 12, 13, + 1)

In a normal year, annual junior membership for boys entitles the junior member to receive weekly group coaching sessions over the summer (from May to August), and to be selected to play matches where they are available in a given age group. Matches are played in all age groups above.

Weekly coaching sessions are split into age groups to ensure that all juniors can receive age appropriate, targeted training.

The Covid-19 epidemic has resulted in changes to this in 2020.

Junior Training for U11+ in Covid-19 affected Summer of 2020

We are delighted to be able to start some junior cricket training in line with ECB Guidance - as with other sectors, this will not be training as normal but will be adapted in light of the epidemic. We are confident that we can offer junior players U11+ training in smaller, focused groups throughout the season which may be extended into late September 2020.

As at today's date junior training will comprise:

  • training sessions of 1 hour 15 mins in small groups
  • sessions will start w/c 15 June 2020
  • Timings for first 3 weeks (you will be allocated to a session by us):
U19 Saturdays 12:30 - 14:00
U15 Wednesdays 17:30 - 19:00
U13 Thursdays 17:30 - 19:00
U11 Saturdays 9:00 - 10:15
    10:30 - 11:45
U9 Fridays 18:45 - 20:00
U7 Fridays 17:00 - 18:15

Players will be socially distanced during sessions and we will be following ECB Guidance at all times. You can read the full Guidance HERE. Further details will be e mailed out to all members upon registration.

Provision will be reviewed in line with ECB and other relevant guidance every 3 weeks, or as soon as the guidance changes if earlier. We are hopeful that some matches may be permitted in the coming weeks and we will keep you updated via Member e mail as soon as we have any further information.

With effect from 13 June 2020, access to our outdoor nets and training facilities will only be available to Members who have registered and paid for the 2020 season.

We look forward to welcoming as many of you as possible to training soon!

Junior Membership is £55 for the full 2020 season. 

Please note, that as we are a private members' club, for licensing purposes all adults on our premises while the bar is open must be members of the club - this means that for each junior member, a parent must also join as a parent social member for £15.  This enables you to accompany your child to training, use our bar facilities throughout the year when open, and keeps us legally compliant! 

If you have any questions relating to membership please contact us on 0191 246 0006 or email support@southnorth.co.uk
