- Higher gender diversity, a mix of boys and girls
Those interested in joining next year, 2022, are requested to complete the registration formalities in March-April 2022. No registrations will be accepted after May, and you might risk not getting a place. Add a reminder for yourself on Outlook here.
If you would like to join for the Competitive U16 games, kindly let Girish know as soon as possible (preferably before Feb ’22).
Also, if you are interested in purchasing your own kit, kindly contact the Provider of the equipment directly: Teamwear-SAC-CC.
Junior Cricket Highlights
Junior Cricket at the Standard is organised at the under 11 and under 16 level. U11s still play an adapted form of the game that doesn’t require any protective equipment, while U16s progress on to play traditional cricket.
We focus on individual skills for all players and hope to be able to hold fixtures with local clubs.
SAC Juniors in action
At any level, your children won't need any special clothing or cricket gear. The SAC cricket section has cricket gear and training aids adapted for small hands (this season we are lending kit so no one has to share), your child doesn't need to bring any gear unless they have some already. Having said that, it is always good to have a few personal things, especially for protection.
Junior Cricket Saturday Session Times
Junior Cricket Club has all the equipment necessary (except some due to COVID that are required to be individual). Players are required to join with their sportswear.
Practice sessions are on Saturday mornings, but can also be on any weekday. Any other weekday has to be planned ahead (based on Girish's or representative’s availability).
Membership covers the cost of the equipment, the obligatory France Cricket Junior Licence, and a special piece of cricket clothing.
