All Stars Cricket Launches
Posted 9th April 2017
Old Wilsonians' are one of the providers of the brand new ECB All Stars Cricket programme starting Friday 19th May!
The ECB recently launched (Monday 20th March) a grassroots programme for 5 to 8 year olds with the aim of getting 50,000 youngsters participating in the game this summer.
Old Wilsonians' will be providing an eight week course every Friday evening for 8 weeks from 6 to 7pm for girls and boys aged 5 to 8 which will be headed up by the Club's Activator, Michael "Mitch" Mitchell, who also happens to be the Club's first XI Captain! Mitch has already said he is "really happy to be taking on the role" and of course he has all the necessary qualifications and clearances.
Mitch will follow an ECB researched and developed curriculum; it will be fun, it will be game-based, it will teach basic cricket skills and it will allow children to learn about teamwork and communication. What's not to like? But there is more.....all participants will, for the only £40 join up fee, receive an All Stars Cricket branded pack including a cricket bat, ball, shirt, cap backpack and water bottle.
