We suggest completing a season of the Junior Skills Programme before moving into our Junior Softball cricket.

Children will develop their cricket, movement and technical skills through fun games and activities. The skills your children learn can also be incorporated into day to day life and transferred to other sporting codes.
The programme will be led by coaches from the Senior Club, many of whom were involved in a similar coaching program when they were starting off.
Parents are encouraged to get involved with their child’s development and incorporate the activities we run in the Junior Skills programme at home in the backyard.
The subscription is only $100 for the Junior Skills Programme. All playing gear is provided.
Children can also join teh programme at any stage during the season, with subscrpitons reducing to $80 form December of $50 from February 2022. These registration options will be live on the website when they become available.
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.
There are many benefits to joining the Ellerslie Cricket Club Junior Skills Programme including:
PROGRAMME STRUCTURE - HOW THE NIGHT RUNS
Cricket is a very hard game to learn and at Ellerslie we adopt a fundamental skills based programme endorsed by New Zealand Cricket.
Our programme will provide your child with all the necessary skills to be able to play cricket. The skills are transferable and give children the foundation blocks to be able to catch, jump, run, strike and throw.
Your child will be placed into a team on the first night named after a well-known ‘Black Cap’.
In the first part of the session Senior Club players take the children through fun skills and activity stations.
Mid way through we stop for a break and the children have the opportunity to purchase a sausage and a drink from our BBQ.
The second part of the session involves modified games based on the skills learnt that night. As the season progresses and when the children are ready we move to a more structured game where they will compete against a team batting, bowling and fielding.
Parental support and involvement is essential during the evening. In the first session we require a parent to accompany a team and in the second session we need parents to assist in running the games. PLEASE get involved.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
