Coggeshall Town Cricket Club has a flourishing Colts section and is committed to developing the abilities of all young cricketers. The coaching sessions are held on Saturday mornings at Harefield for Year 6 and under and Monday evenings from 6.30pm for Year 7 and above.
We enter teams of our younger colts,of all abilities, in Kwik cricket tournaments throughout the summer and hosted our own tournament annually at our Harefield ground.
In 2019 we will have teams at U11, U12, U13, U14 and U15 age groups giving every child the opportunity to play competitive cricket in their age group. Our U12 will also compeat in the Brian Taylor cup.
U9 & U10 are focused on to progression to hard ball cricket and we will be running all girl sessions this season.
For younger children we will have kwik cricket and all stars running curing the spring & summer.
We are very proud to say that as the colts develop they will also have the opportunity to play senior league cricket and our Sunday 2 XI is specifically focussed on the transition from Colts to senior level standard.
CTCC will provide all equipment for our kwik cricketers to come along and enjoy learning the game and for hard ball players we can supply Helmets, balls,bats,pads.
The ECB guidelines suggest for young players under the age of 18 that:
"helmets with a faceguard or grille should be worn
when batting against a hard cricket ball in matches
and in practice sessions
• young players should regard a helmet with a
faceguard as a normal item of protective equipment
when batting, together with pads, gloves and, for
boys, an abdominal protector (box)
• young wicket keepers should wear a helmet with a
faceguard, or a wicketkeeper face protector when
standing up to the stumps"
Hardball players should provide their own "an abdominal protector (box)"
