Camberley Cricket Club provides opportunities for young people between the ages of 5 and 17 to receive not only coaching but also an introduction into competitive cricket where the emphasis is placed on team spirit and having fun.
We are delighted to have retained the services of Paul Abraham as Head of Coaching ably assisted by a number of qualified coaches who also play their cricket at the club. All coaches are trained and screened for their suitability for working with young people in accordance with our Welfare policies.
Cricket Academy and Development of Excellence
Camberley recognises the need to promote homegrown players that will hopefully go on to represent the senior sides for years to come and with this in mind we have invested in our own Cricket Academy and Development of Excellence programs. These programs will reward young talent at different age ranges and look to equip them with some of the finer skills required to make the transition from junior cricket to youth cricket and then from youth cricket to senior cricket. A number of current senior players have benefited from these schemes.
Our teams enter competitions in the West Surrey Youth Cricket Leagues, and Berkeley Sports Two Counties Youth League. Matches generally take place on a different evening relevant to the age group and on Sundays.
As part of our commitment to being a community club, we offer cricketing opportunities for a number of demographics. Along with the well-established boys' section, we also have our own girls' cricket team which was set up in 2013. Another scheme to flourish was the introduction of our All-Stars courses where youngsters from the age of 5 to 8 who received bespoke coaching for 10 weeks from May each year.
We welcome parents and carers to all training and competitions and value their support. It is expected that all children have a responsible adult in attendance at both training sessions and matches.
We are also keen to involve parents and carers in the club. There are opportunities to join the committee, to help out with social events and to organise or help with the barbecue on a Friday evening.
We operate a calendar for both summer training held on the ground at Camberley and also Winter training at the fantastic indoor cricket centre at Wellington College, Crowthorne and Collingwood College.
For details of timings please see the Junior Training Times page here: https://www.camberleycc.co.uk/a/junior-cricket-43010.html?page=2
Arrangements should be made for children to travel to and from training sessions and matches. Children should arrive promptly and be collected promptly at the end of the session.
We ask that Juniors attend training wearing a cricket shirt and tracksuit bottoms and trainers. Cricket whites should be worn for matches, sweaters, shirts and caps can be purchased from the club. The club has bats, pads, gloves and helmets which we loan out during training and matches but we would expect all boys to have their own box.
If you would like to talk to someone at the club about this information or your child’s involvement with the club, please contact the Junior Cricket Chairman, Neil Piper on 07305 837888
We thank you for your cooperation and look forward to meeting you at some point in the future.
