Winter Cricket

posted 25 Nov 2010, 01:27 by Rory Gogarty

Although it's not traditionally time for cricket in December, we thought we should keep in touch during the cold months because, as every cricket lover knows, Spring is just round the corner and cricket is never forgotten!

First of all, we wanted to congratulate our U/10s and U/12s on a brilliant league debut in 2010. The U/12's in their first season came 3rd out of 8 teams entered in the Sussex Shield league and the U/10s finished 5th out of 8 teams in the Blue League.  All games were very competitive and next year we expect even greater things form the boys and girls of Bosham.  Well done everybody.
Secondly, to keep everyone in a bit of shape over the winter months, we are delighted to offer in conjunction with BC Sport, a series of winter cricket activities for boys and girls in the run-up to Christmas this year. BC Sport is headed by Ben Cook who will be known to many of you.  He is a ECB qualified coach and has all the appropriate coaching and child care certificates.  They  have a 4-day programme of 3-hour sessions being held at 6 Villages Sports Centre in Westergate near Chichester. There will be morning sessions for ages 6-9 and afternoon sessions for 10-12 year-olds on all days.

Prices will be £12 per session and this is expected to be very popular so advanced booking would be appreciated. Whilst it is not essential that all days are attended there will be a different programme each day covering a variety of activities to be delivered by experienced coaches.

Please see the table below for a breakdown of session times and availability.  Please also note that not all session times are the same on each day. It will be important that we group similar aged children together to ensure maximum enjoyment and participation for all so bear this in mind when booking.
These sessions would be a great opportunity for children to get active and have fun while parents finish the Christmas shopping or attend to other festive issues!
