Youth Cricket in 2020 with Goring CC Academy
The GCC Academy continues to thrive with over 150 girls and boys playing across the different age groups, from Allstars to Under 15s. The focus is on fun, inclusivity, training/technique and match play to ultimately support progression into the senior game.
We are part of the successful ECB initiative “AllStars Cricket” which is aimed at 5 to 8 year olds with the emphasis on fun and being active. Training for this is provided by club members on Saturday mornings from 9 to 9:45am.
Training for Years 3 to 6 (ages 8 to 11) takes place on Tuesday evenings from 6.00pm to 7.30pm run by the professional coaches form Performance Cricket. We are part of a mini league, with a soft ball pairs game, for U9s (years 3 & 4) and play hard ball pairs games in a local league for U11s on Sunday mornings.
Training for Year 7 upwards is on a Friday evening from 6:30 to 8pm and is similarly delivered via Performance Cricket along with senior club members. We are part of the Oxfordshire U13 league and matches are scheduled for Thursday evenings.
For 2020, we are looking to reinstate our Under 15 team and have Under 15s play in a number of senior games. Under 15s will net with the senior squad on Thursday evenings.
Assuming we have space, all children of any ability are welcome to take part – plus, we truly value the support and help of parents and grandparents at training and matches!
