Journey With Budding Stars 2017

After the hugely successful summer cricket coaching camp last year we are again gearing up to host our 3rd Summer Cricket Coaching Camp “FRIENDS JOURNEY WITH BUDDING STARS- SEASON 3” this year as well for boys and girls between the ages 8 and 15 years at the Alexandra Park Cricket Ground on 28th, 29th, 31st of August and 1st of September between 10am to 4pm.

Last year following on from the Camp, we had regular indoor coaching during the winter as well for all the trainees bringing them up to a level, to play competitively. We are pleased to say we succeeded in that endeavour and 18 of those trainees are now playing as a team in the Greater Manchester Cricket league for juniors on a regular basis for the club this year. Few of them are selected for Lancashire junior team as well.

Buoyed by this success, we intend to continue the good work and train more boys and girls this year, to form multiple teams under various age groups, for the cricket season next year.

We also have two more of our club members qualified as ECB certified Level 2 coaches this year to assist and carry forward the training all through the year. We also expect as last year to get adequate assistance from Lancashire Cricket Board (LCB) and its officers/coaches.

The aim of this coaching camp is to again identify new young cricketing talent in our community, teach them basic techniques and provide skill development programmes. We will continue to provide ongoing training and regular coaching to sharpen their skills and enable them to reach county and national level. This event is supported by English Cricket Board, Lancashire Cricket Board, Coaches Association, Sportivate and British Malayali online portal and guided by Manchester City Council Sports development officers.

Admissions are limited to 45 children. All sessions are run by ECB qualified and UKCCA coaches. Sessions include, Pace Bowling, Spin Bowling, Batting techniques, Fielding, LTAD (Long Term Athlete Development), Nutrition, Cricketing games and group matches. Senior coaches, ECB & LCB officials, Local leaders and Elite players are visiting us during the course of the coaching.
