Junior cricket coaching for all ages and skill levels

Love-Cricket junior cricket  coaching courses run in 10 week blocks through the Winter, starting September to December and after Christmas January to March. Sessions take place indoors at purpose-built sports facilities in York. Courses are divided into groups, to cater for different ages and skill levels:


For boys and girls who are complete newcomers to the sport, or those with a little cricket experience, with an appetite to learn the game. Designed to prepare players for participation in the Under 9’s Incrediball league. Incrediball is a soft plastic ball, widely used for training and match play, and is an intermediate step towards hardball cricket.


With a focus on player technical development, net practice and coaching drills, this course is the ideal preparation for boys and girls looking to play competitive hardball cricket.


Aimed at children from 8 to 15 playing or aspiring to play representative cricket, this course offers more intensive coaching and training in smaller groups (maximum 5 per coach) using video analysis to enhance technique over 9 weeks starting 5th October and is strictly limited on places. Our Elite coaches  include Mick Pickering, a long-standing and highly respected Elite Level 3 ECB coach. In the last year we are proud of our boys and girls from the course who have gone on to represent Yorkshire Under 19’s, Yorkshire (various Junior ages), North Yorkshire and a range of representative teams in York and surrounding areas.


For advice on which course is most appropriate for you, please call 07542 900140 or email and our coaching team will be pleased to help.
