Club development news
The Cricket Scotland eight-week programme begins in May and will see participating boys and girls develop their skills and make new friends in a safe and inclusive environment at one of fourteen west-based cricket clubs who have signed up to host and run the sessions. For more information please visit the All Stars Cricket website or contact either of the West Region ‘All Star Champions’ myself or Rosy Ryan.”
Glasgow Accies CC Junior Convenor Colin Dawson (07931-569138) has asked that we advertise the upcoming Easter holiday cricket coaching that’s taking place at The Glasgow Academy this year. Registration forms for the coaching courses – one for Under 13 age-group players, the other for Over 13s – are online now in this regard, as well as more information on the courses themselves.
Tim Hart writes, “Cricket Scotland held the West Region ‘All Stars Cricket’ roadshow at Hutchesons’ Grammar School, on Sunday the 26th of February. Over 30 people, representing fifteen different clubs, attended the roadshow to learn more about the exciting, new, UK-wide, introductory programme for 5 to 8 years olds which will be coming to Scotland later this year. More details will be released during the next few months…”
Tim Hart writes, “This Sunday will be the last of the west Regional Development Centre Under 16 Strathclyde Girls Squad training sessions for this winter. The session is taking place at Hutchesons’ Grammar School, from 11.30am to 1pm, and there is a very small cost of £2 for anyone who wishes to attend the session. If there are any girls at west district clubs who might be interested clubs’ Junior Convenors should notify them of the session.”
Tim Hart has circulated his February update on what’s going on in here in the west in community development. His update was sent to clubs’ Junior Convenors, and there’s a copy here online.
Ammar Ashraf, Junior Convenor at East Renfrewshire CC has let us know about girls cricket sessions being run by his club, at Eastwood High School Sports Hall, in Newton Mearns, in March. Running for five weeks, the sessions are for girls in primaries 4 to 7, and will be delivered by a female coach. We have a flyer for the sessions online, and more information can be obtained from either Ammar, or by emailing the club.
Tim Hart has circulated his January update on what’s going on in here in the west in community development. His update was sent to clubs’ Junior Convenors, and there’s a copy here online.
Tim Hart writes, “Saturday 21 January saw the West Regional Development Centre host a one-off Under 12 Talent Day. The event, which took place in two different sessions, saw 41 young players from fifteen different west district clubs come together to re-cap some of the basics of moving, batting, bowling, fielding and wicket-keeping. Thanks must go to the players for their effort and enthusiasm on the day, to the Sports Council for Glasgow for their support of the session and to the two coaches and the three ‘ambassadors’ (current west RDC Under 15 players) who led the sessions.”
