The activity and game based programme is suitable for all skill levels, providing your child with the foundations to begin a lifelong love of physical activity and cricket, while making friends in a safe and enjoyable environment At Reed Cricket Club we have already successfully operated cricket sessions for 5-8 year olds where last summer we ran a "Cricket Minis" programme. We will now be running our sessions under the ECB All Stars Cricket brand name. As with the Minis, our All Stars Programme will be led and coached by previous county youth player and former 1st team Captain James Heslam. Jamie Green whose child attended the Minis sessions last year commented "My son Jon aged 5 was made to feel welcome from the start and although not knowing many children there he blended in really well as taught in a safe and encouraging way developing a real love for cricket, Jon will return to Reed cricket this season without hesitation.” Reed CC will be running 10 sessions this summer, (not 8 as advertised).
