Bromsgrove Cricket Club

Junior Boars Programme

Junior Boars is the new entry point to Bromsgrove Cricket Club for all young cricketers aged between 5 – 13. The sessions are run at the Club by our coaching partners, Try Scoring Runs.

Children will develop their cricket skills in all 3 disciplines of batting, bowling and fielding over time. Once they are in the age range to be considered for Age Group Squad Training, their skills and commitment to cricket will be assessed to establish their suitability to be promoted to the hard ball cricket coaching groups (subject to availability of spaces).

Junior Boars runs on a Wednesday evening and starting in 2017 will incorporate the children who previously took part in the Sunday morning Mini Boars sessions.

For more details of the Junior Boars programme please see the attached flier. (Flier to be attached)

Age Group Squads

Age Group squad training is aimed at children aged between 9 – 17 who have gained cricket experience either through our Junior Boars programme or at another Club/School.

Any children aged between 9 – 13 will first be invited to join the Junior Boars programme for initial assessment. Children who demonstrate the necessary skills and commitment to cricket and practice will be invited to join their age group squad (if spaces are available).

The Age Group squads include all players who represent Bromsgrove Cricket Club in both incrediball and hard ball cricket in the Worcestershire County League fixtures.

Age Group Squad co-ordinator: Tracy Husbands


Open Age Cricket

From the age of 13 (or 12 if involved in a County age group) children will be allowed to take part in open age cricket on Saturday/Sunday afternoons.

Our experience tells us that the sooner children are involved in playing cricket with adults, the quicker they develop. This is especially important for children who are either involved in or trying to get selected for County age group cricket. 

We strongly encourage all children playing in an age group squad from Under 14 up to make themselves available to play open age cricket when the opportunity arises.

County nominations

Our very best players at each age group will be nominated for Worcestershire County trials which take place at the end of the season. This represents a fantastic opportunity for children to represent not only Bromsgrove but also Worcestershire either as Rapids and A squad.

A new feedback loop is being put into place this year with each County age group manager to ensure that the Club coaches and County coaches are aligned on individual coaching programmes.

Strong performances at the older County age groups can put children on the pathway for England selection.
