Indoor Training At Amersham School

 

Junior pre-season hardball training after half term will be on Saturdays at Amersham School, Stanley Hill, Amersham HP7 9HH

 

For those eligible for adult cricket (County under 12s and under 13s upwards) (age groups for 2020 season – i.e. age on 1 September 2019)

a.      5 sessions which will run in parallel with adult training 4-6pm for 5 weeks, 29 Feb – 28 March.

b.      Cost £40 for 5 weeks paid in advance (or you can pay as you go, £10 per session IN CASH to me WITHOUT FAIL on the day)

c.       Please book using the form on this link.  Booking Form

 

There will be much more opportunity for one-to-one coaching using bowling machine etc than in the previous junior training.

 

Although sharing the hall with adult training, the 2 won't completely merge.  I'll only allow younger players (although all are eligible to play adult cricket) to share nets with adults where appropriate.

 

In any event, I suspect that the adult bowling won’t be very quick (other than perhaps Ed Batchelor!), since most of the young bowlers will be away at uni until the Easter holidays.

I expect that some or all of the U13 girls may be better suited to and more comfortable in the 2 – 4 PM sessions.  I'm happy to be flexible and discuss any uncertainty there.

For those younger than that who can play hardball (some u9s and all U10s, 11s and 12s) (age groups for 2020 season – i.e. age on 1 September 2019)

a.       2-4pm, for 4 weeks 29 Feb – 21 March.

b.      Cost £32 for 4 weeks

c.       Please book using the form on this link.  Booking Form

There may be doubt about which U9 players are ready for hardball.  I'm afraid the coaches’ judgement on that will have to be final.  If in doubt, please ask.

General points

This will all be very much pre-season training focusing on nets and match practice.

It is open to non-members if space permits, so do tell your friends; but we will have to give priority to club members (ie members last season or, if not members last season, early joiners this season – you can join now - details on annual fees can be found on the website at Membership Fees  To join the Club please go to Register

 

For members, don’t delay in signing up since space will be limited, particularly in the 2-4pm sessions.

 

Non-members:  please do sign up but don’t pay until notified that you have a place.

I'm sorry there is no place for younger players not yet ready for hardball for the first 4 weeks.  It is simply not possible to fit everyone in. 

We are however planning to have a single softball session for U9s and below on 28 March 2 – 4 PM.  We will email about that and do bookings separately.
