The Cricket course will provide opportunities for pupils of all abilities to further develop their love for the sport and their own techniques. This course will feature a variety of fun and exciting ways to learn and develop through game play using both hard ball and soft ball. In addition, all pupils will have the chance to advance their skills in the nets and in conditioned match play environments catered to the modern game! There will also be a focus on the 4 main aspects of the game: technical, tactical, physical and mental throughout the sessions.
The ECB have produced guidelines for running cricket, and as a result we are making some changes to this course to allow for pupils to be able to work in the required groups of 6. The course tutor will continue to lead the session, but within each course we will subdivide the pupils into groups of 6, and each of those groups will have their own ‘coach’ in one of our Old Persean assistant tutors. We will continue to monitor advice from the ECB.
