Totton & Eling Junior Section
Totton & Eling Cricket Club has a thriving junior section for young cricketers .
In May and June 2019 we took part in the England and Wales Cricket Board’s entry level participation programme, All Stars Cricket. This programme, , spread over eight weeks is aimed at providing boys & girls aged 5 to 8 with a great first experience in cricket. All Stars cricket gives children the chance to play, learn great skills, and meet new friends. Following the sucess in 2019 Totton & Eling Cricket Club will be taking part again in 2020
Structured & organised coaching is provided by fully qualified club coaches who provide the boys and girls aged 9 years to 16 years with the tools to progress their cricketing knowledge and skills in a fun, safe and progressive environment. Totton & Eling’s coaching programme is designed to ensure that children receive appropriately delivered instruction & guidance in order for them to feel comfortable to progress and learn with children of similar ability and understanding for the game. We welcome young cricketer’s, boys and girls, of all abilities. We are keen to expand the number of girls playing cricket.
Beyond our commitment to provide a fun coaching environment to all who wish to learn and develop knowledge and skills, Totton & Eling also provide competitive match play to those who show sufficient skills, understanding and attitude for the game. Totton & Eling have representative teams’ who compete in the New Forest Junior Cricket Association league structure from early May to late July each year.
