Youth Cricket 2023

Swardeston CEYMS youth training dates for 2023

The first youth training of 2023 will take place on Tuesday 25 April 2023 run by our team of fully qualified ECB Coaches.

The sessions this year will take place at our Hilltops ground for all age groups and will be led by Neil Taylor Swardeston Director of Youth and Women and Girls Cricket.

Youth training is open to players including boys and girls from the ages of 5 up to 15.

Start: Tuesday 25 April 2023
Finish: Tuesday 18 July 2023

Minis, Under 9-s, Under-11s: 5.45pm–7pm
Under-13s and Under-15s: 6.45pm–8.15pm

Cost per session: £3 payable on the night
(Please note: All players must be signed in before training)

Annual Membership 
Junior Playing Member (playing full open-age matches) £25;
All other junior members £20.

Junior Membership Forms and Junior Membership Fees
You will need to complete a new Junior Membership Form so that we have up-to-date contact information. A new membership form for 2023 is below. This will need to be completed and submitted prior to the first training session.

Standard junior membership fee is £20 (unchanged from last year). Only those who will be playing matches for the adult teams on a Saturday or Sunday should pay the higher fee of £25 (unchanged from last year).

We appreciate that some of you have a number of children who come to the club and so we will charge £15 for the second child, then £10 for the third and then £5 thereafter.

There will still be a match fee of £3 (again no change from previous years) for those playing in adult teams or age-group teams. This is payable on the day.

Membership should be paid by bank transfer wherever possible. Please add your first name and surname and membership type in the reference box (eg Adam Smith junior matches only) – this will help us track your payment. Bank details are on the Junior Membership Form.

(Please note: Players will only be eligible for selection for junior fixtures if they have completed their membership forms as the club needs up-to-date contact details)

Coaching Fees
Tuesday evening coaching remains at £3 per head per session. This has remained at this level for many years. Apologies but it is still cash only, so please try and bring the right change.

We are a Clubmark Club and adhere to the ‘Safe Hands’ Policy for Safeguarding Children in Cricket, which is available at www.ecb/safehands, or a copy is available at the club. All of the adults at the club who work with children have passed an ECB-enhanced DBS check.

Players and parents are advised to read the Code of Conduct prior to the season.

If any sessions are rain-affected and cancelled then we will put cancellation news on both our Twitter and Facebook pages as well as on this website.
