After the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic led to limited delivery of All Stars Cricket and Dynamos Cricket across the nation in 2020, Middlesex Cricket is really looking forward to the safe running of both programmes this summer, with courses starting from 7th May 2021.
We’ve had a brilliant response from Clubs across the county registering as All Stars Cricket and Dynamos Cricket Centres for the summer of 2021, and participants can now sign up for a place at their local All Stars Cricket or Dynamos Cricket centre!
No matter where you are in the county, there’s guaranteed to be a Club near you that will be holding All Stars and Dynamos session, so what are you waiting for, sign up for a place now and make sure you’re involved in 2021.
You can find your local centre and register your child’s place via the links below:
What is All Stars Cricket?
All Stars Cricket is the ECB’s entry level programme for 5- to 8-year-olds, looking to take their first steps in the game. All Stars Cricket is an eight-week coaching programme, from May onwards, delivered by Clubs and Club volunteers. In some areas where there are no or a limited number of traditional Cricket Clubs, Middlesex Cricket organise All Stars Cricket Community Centres run by the Middlesex Participation Team coaches.
Each participant receives a backpack when they sign up, which includes a t-shirt, bat, ball, hat, and an activity pack, which is delivered directly to their home address. Parents and guardians can book their child/ children a place at a local centre when the booking system opens.
What is Dynamos Cricket?
Dynamos Cricket is the ECB’s entry level programme for 9- to 12-year-olds, aimed at attracting new children to cricket or as a progression from the successful All Stars Cricket initiative that has been running for three years.
Dynamos Cricket is designed to offer an alternative style of cricket, with the eight hours of coaching being focused on the new countdown cricket format. Many of the programmes will start in May and will be delivered by Clubs and Club volunteers. Similarly to All Stars Cricket, in some areas where there are no or a limited number of traditional Clubs, Middlesex Cricket have organised Dynamos Cricket Community Centres to be run by the Middlesex Participation Team coaches.
