The brilliant All Stars Cricket initiative from the ECB has been a huge success, with over 2200 courses running up and down the country. It is, however, only available to children aged between 5-8 – which is where Dynamos Cricket comes in. Catering for kids aged 8-11 who have either graduated from All Stars or are new to the sport, Dynamos is a terrific environment for any kid wanting to get involved in and learn about playing cricket.
Introducing Your Kids to Cricket
Much like All Stars Cricket, Dynamos will kit your kids out with all sorts of cricketing gear. The programme includes:
- Children will use soft balls and light wooden bats
- Minimum of six 60-90 minute sessions
- Introduction to game play through a countdown cricket match
- New Balance personalised t-shirt with name and number
- Valuable time with your kids – mums and dads are encouraged to take part too
- Complementary digital app experience
- Safe and fully accredited
Sessions kick off with a 10 minute warm-up to get the children moving and recapping on motor skills and basic ball handling.
The sessions continue with skill builders for 15 minutes, providing everything children need to play, with a particular focus on bowling. The sessions will then culminate with a game of countdown cricket for around 30-45 minutes, giving everyone a chance to participate in all elements of the game – batting, bowling and fielding.
Available from the end of April, the initiative will also have an fabulous digital app to complement the programme. Packed with exclusive cricket content, quizzes and practical activities, the app will allow your child to track their Dynamos Cricket journey as they progress, unlocking new content and skills challenges as they go.
Value for Money!
Prices will vary from centre to centre but mostly tend to be about £40, which we reckon for 8 weeks worth of sessions is great value. Sessions will take place mostly at weekends though some will also be held on weekday evenings. You can find your nearest centre here.
