2020 Winter Coaching
Details of the Adult and Youth 2020 winter nets timetable and all relevant information that will hopefully answer any questions are below.
Winter nets are again to be held in the Hurst College Sports Hall every Sunday afternoon for the Youth and Sunday evenings for Adults. Sessions commence on Sunday 9th February, 2.00 pm – 5.00 pm for Youth and 7.00 pm – 9.00 pm for Adults. Nets will continue up until Sunday April 5th.
The timetable is as follows –
U11s – U15s (this coming seasons age groups)
For the Sunday afternoon sessions, we are proposing the following times and lane net allocations for the boys and girls, based on their age groups for this coming season. These, we believe, use the optimum allocation of time and coaching resources whilst balancing out the numbers of youngsters in each age group. The timetable for youth sessions by age group is below.
2.00pm – 3.00pm 3.00pm – 4.00pm 4.00pm – 5.00pm
Lane1/2 Lane3/4 Lane1/2 Lane3/4 Lane 1/2 Lane 3/4
U11 Boys U12 Boys U13 Boys U15 Boys U14 Boys U13/16 Girls
Any U10 boys who are considered by their manager and their parents to be competent and safe to play hardball cricket are invited to attend the U11 sessions from 2.00 – 3.00 pm. Those older girls who already play Ladies cricket can attend the evening Ladies net sessions instead of, or as well as, the afternoon ones. Those U15 boys who have played adult cricket can also attend both the junior and senior sessions.
U10s and Younger (this seasons age groups), U11 girls
For those boys who are U10 and younger this coming season, and those girls who are U11, we have again booked the larger Oakmeeds Sports Hall on Tuesday evenings from 6.00 – 7.30 pm for softball practice and coaching. These sessions will be again be run by a Sussex CCC coach and are guaranteed to be great fun. All of our ‘All Stars’ from last year are invited to come along to these sessions. The sessions commence on Tuesday 4th February and continue every week up to and including the 7th April. We are again coaching in Burgess Hill primary schools in January, February and March and will be inviting those children attending their school sessions to come along to these evenings.
Adult, Ladies, U16s & U15s (this seasons age groups)
Adult nets commence on Sunday evenings between 7.00 pm and 9.00 pm at Hurst College from the 9th February, continuing up until the Sunday 5th April. We have again booked four lanes this year. We anticipate that these will be allocated as lanes 1,2 & 3 for Adult and Youth players and lane 4 for our Ladies as before.
2020 Summer Coaching
The U11, U13 and U16s will commence at 4.15 pm and continue through to 5.40 pm, a slightly earlier finish. All coaching takes place in the nets for the older girls and on the outfield with use of the square and the artificial wicket for the U11s and younger.
U7, 8, 9 & 10, 4.30 – 5.45 pm . All coaching takes place on the outfield plus use of the square and the artificial wicket.
U11 & U12, 6.00 – 7.00 pm split between nets, artificial, square and the outfield.
U13, 6.15 – 7.30 pm split between nets, artificial, square and the outfield.
U14s & 15s – 6.15 – 7.30 pm These two age groups will be coached as one group, split between nets, artificial, square and the outfield.
This year we will plan sessions to ensure there is an organised rotation between the nets, square, artificial and the outfield for the hard ball training sessions.
Ladies training will take on Monday evenings from 6.00 pm through to 7.30 pm. U16 girls and those wishing to play senior cricket are encouraged to attend these sessions in addition to the Friday practices.
Adult nets will take place every Wednesday evening from 6.00 pm until dark.
All U15s, 16s, 17s & 18s who wish to play adult cricket are encouraged to attend the Wednesday evening net sessions, where additional individual and group coaching will be provided.
