All Stars Cricket is progressing in to its second year. Cornwall had a great year in 2017 with 19 centres and 455 participants.
All Stars Cricket a new initiative from the England and Wales Cricket Board aimed at providing children aged five to eight with a great first experience in cricket. The programme is delivered across England and Wales at over 1,500 fully accredited All Stars Cricket centres. It is a fun and active way to develop your child’s skills, and through our eight-week programme they will learn lots – as well as make new friends – in a safe and inclusive environment.
All girls and boys are welcome, and each registered child will receive a pack of cricket goodies. Year 1 participants will receive a cricket bat, ball, backpack, water bottle, personalised shirt and cap to keep so that they can continue their love of cricket when they go home. Year 2 participants will get a different bag, a shirt and set of stumps, plus a passport to record their achievements.
