Youth Cricket

Swardeston CEYMS youth training dates and fixtures for 2018

The first youth training of 2018 will take place on Tuesday 17 April at both The Common and Hilltops run by our team of fully qualified ECB Coaches. 

Youth training will start at 6:15pm and run until 7:45pm every week although we recommend arriving at 5:45pm on the first night so that every player can be fully registered ahead of the 2018 season.

Our youth cricket is headed by Youth Cricket Manager Jason Reynolds, who can be contacted on:

Clubmark

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.

As was the case during previous seasons, every junior player, including those that have been life members at the club, will be required to fill out a registration form to update personal details including any key medical information and key contacts. This is an ECB Clubmark requirement which the club are very proud to have held since 2005.

Old registration forms are now not valid and players must present/fill in a form before they can take part during the 2018 coaching sessions. Players and parents are also advised to read the Code of Conduct prior to the season.

You can prepare by downloading and filling in by hand this Junior Membership Form 2018 Form ahead of the first night.

Volunteers

Swardeston CC is run by a number of volunteers, but the club is always looking for parental help – please do consider helping out if you can.

The club is always seeking new players. Junior training is open to all players including boys and girls from the ages of 6 up to 15. Experience is not required as our fully qualified ECB coaches will cater for all needs and abilities ensuring that enjoyment is the primary goal for every session.

We hope that your child/children will enjoy being a club member and will enjoy the cricket coaching, training, and matches, as well as the social interactions available at the club.

Clubhouse

Every Tuesday the clubhouse will be open from 6pm until 8pm with the bar and kitchen open. (Kitchen orders should be made at the front desk at the start of the night)

Youth players and parents are always welcome at the club during the season and we really encourage them to come down to the club on Saturdays to enjoy the excellent standard of cricket on offer at The Common where our 1st and 2nd teams play their fixtures. At 6pm every Saturday the bar and kitchen (serving a wide variety of dishes) will open for service so why not come down and enjoy a sociable day/evening at the club.  

Bad weather

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.
