Our junior section has a very strong and experienced coaching team, led by our head coach, Chris Poil. In 2022, we will have the benefit of various professional coaches provided through our associated academy, Matchfit Academy, including Surrey coaches Ronny and Danny Harrison and experienced local coach, Tom Selby. We also expect to have an overseas player/coach. There will be at least one professional coach allocated to each boys’ and girls’ squad this summer, working together with our numerous qualified volunteer coaches and squad managers.
Aside from training programmes and matches, the coaching team also runs various other activities, including half term and summer holiday cricket camps. These are open to both boys and girls at appropriate age groups.
Individual and 1:2 coaching sessions are available to junior members throughout the year from one of our professional coaches. Sessions take place at the club or during the winter months at an indoor facility. The cost is just £30 per hour (whether 1:1 or 1:2), plus the cost of hiring the indoor facility.
