Details of Swardeston CEYMS youth teams training dates and fixtures for the 2017 summer

 

Cost: £3 Per Session (No Sign-Up Fee Required) REGISTER (1)

Location: The Common (U8s, U9s, U11s & U13) & Hilltops (U15)

(Please Note: All players must be signed in at The Common before heading to Hilltops for training)

Based just south of Norwich, Swardeston – one of East Anglia’s leading cricket clubs – can trace its history back over 150 years and now runs four Saturday sides, two Sunday teams and a thriving youth section with teams at Under-19, Under-15, Under-13, Under-11 and Under-9 level.

The first junior training will take place on Tuesday 18 April 2017 at both The Common and Hilltops run by our team of fully qualified ECB Coaches. Junior 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 2017 season.

As was the case during previous seasons including the 2016 season, 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 a 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 2017 coaching sessions. Players 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 2017 Form ahead of the first night.

Swardeston Cricket Club are 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.

Our girls section is growing from strength to strength every year thanks largely to the commitment and passion for the game from Girls Manager Katie Treutler. The club now have a Ladies team that play in the local indoor league during the winter and outdoor league during the summer. The club also have a girls U13 & U15 team and hope to play friendlies during the season. All of our junior girl’s teams play softball cricket and train separately from the boys on Tuesday evenings although they can train with boys if preferred. A hard-ball option for the girls is also available on a separate night.

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

Junior 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.  

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.
