Other information

All outdoor group cricket coaching is held at Kenilworth Cricket Club, Warwick Road, Kenilworth, CV8 1FE on either a Tuesday evening, Wednesday evening or Sunday morning.

Our emphasis in all our coaching is on fun and keeping everyone active. 

 

Outdoor Coaching will be cancelled in inclement weather.  There are no refunds for either cancelled or missed sessions.  Where possible you will be informed by e-mail to the e-mail address you provide at registration if the session is cancelled for weather reasons on either a Tuesday evening or Sunday morning provided you have accepted an invitation to join Teamer.

 

KCC reserve the right to ask your child to cease attending coaching sessions at any time in the event he/she is disrupting the coaching session.

Children may only attend the group session they sign up to at the start of the season.

Games

To participate in games you will need to accept an invitation to join Teamer and for your child to be selected for the relevant game.  There are generally eight matches (four home and four away) in each league.

In 2020 we have entered:

  • U9 Hardball Warwickshire 8-a-side Pairs (Random Dates)
  • U11 Hardball Warwickshire 8-a-side Pairs (Fixed Monday evening league)
  • U12 Hardball Warwickshire 8-a-side Pairs (Random Dates)
  • U13 Hardball Cotswold Hills 8-a-side Pairs (Fixed Sunday morning league).
  • U16 Hardball Warwickshire 11-a-side League (Random Dates).

No match fee is payable for junior matches.  Match fees are payable by juniors playing in senior teams.  Please note no Year 2 downwards may play in a hardball fixture.

 

Dynamos

Dynamos at Kenilworth is a games based coaching session aimed at those in School Years 3 to 6.  Every week there will be a brief warm up focussing on bowling and then all participants will be divided into teams (six a side) and participate in a 60 ball per innings game (the “Sixty”).  Play will be with a soft windball.  Players will bat in pairs for 20 balls each.  The field will have mini pitches set up.  Parents of participants will be expected to umpire (two per each game) and supervise the scoring (two per game – one supervising the batting side’s ball countdown and one supervising batting side’s score). 

 

Those who register through the ECB website receive a personalised Dynamos New Balance shirt.  Please order a large size to ensure your child can wear it over a jumper if needs be (and it lasts a couple of seasons).

 

Those in Year 2 who have attended All Stars before may register as a Dynamo provided they can propel the ball 15 yards when bowling.

 

Any Year 6 playing Dynamos who has played hardball cricket for Kenilworth before against external opposition may not score sixes (as this will simply count as a wicket to the opposition). Further rules of this nature may be introduced!

 

The Sunday morning session (10.30am – 11.45am) will be mixed boys and girls but the Tuesday evening (4.45-5.45pm) session will be girls only.

 

Teams will all be mixed abilities and ages but as the games will be “pairs fixtures” where possible and attendees permit we will endeavour to ensure that within the teams players are batting and bowling against players of similar ability and the field settings permit younger players to complete runs.

 

It will be helpful if participants could declare their availability for the forthcoming week through Teamer to ensure the administration of sorting out the teams is completed in advance of the session.

 

All Stars

All Stars is an introductory 8 week coaching course for boys and girls.  Parents are required to take to the field with their child to assist the coaching of their own child.

 

We follow the All Stars games of the week with four stations of different games that are visited during the 45 minute session.

 

Those who register through the ECB website receive a personalised kit bag including an All Stars shirt.
