Ellerslie Cricket Club runs a popular Junior cricket programme across all year groups from the age of 5. Our Junior Girls Co-Ordinator David Woolford runs our Junior Girls Programme in conjunction with coaching staff from the Club and our Junior Club Chairperson, Shane Wilson.
Our philosophy is simple. We are a community and family orientated cricket club and exist to nurture and support our members to achieve their potential. We focus on both their personal and playing development and in turn we hope that our members will remain loyal to our Club and support the Ellerslie community.
Girls can join our cricket programme at any age and will receive training and support suitable for their skills and experience.
We follow the Auckland Cricket Association’s Coaching Philosophy which has an athlete centred approach.
The Spirit of Cricket represents the positive benefits of playing by the rules, using common sense and respecting fellow players, coaches, umpires, opponents and supporters.’
Girls can either join the Ellerslie Cricket Club individually or as part of a school team. We operate a School Programme for Girls and any school wishing to formalise a cricket programme under their banner should contact our Club Manager, Hollie Leona firstname.lastname@example.org.
Girls from Year 0 to 2 can join our Junior Skills Programme which is run on a Friday night at Michaels Avenue Reserve from 5.00pm to 6:30pm. The emphasis for this age group is fun activity in a controlled environment. This Grade is run as a skills session for the first hour where the players rotate between skills stations. At each station, players learn different aspects of the game from qualified coaches/senior players – batting, bowling and fielding techniques. During the second hour they play modified games sessions.
All equipment is provided by the Club. The skills sessions and games are played with a soft ball, plastic bats and plastic wickets. Pads are not required.
The season runs from Friday 12th November, taking a break over the summer holidays and then continuing through to the end of March. Our Junior Skills Programme subscription is just $100 for the full season, with family discounts offered.
Season Dates: Saturday 29th October – Saturday 17th December & Saturday 14th February – Saturday 25th March
Season Dates: Thursday 10th November – Thursday 15th December & 16th February – TBC
Players are expected to practice once a week at Michael’s Ave, with specific training days and times to be later advised.
The season runs from late October, through to the end of March. Our Junior Girls subscription is just $155 for the season with family discounts available. There is a Junior Prizegiving ceremony at the end of the season where children also receive an official team photo.
