Summer Coaching Arrangements for 2022

  • We plan to be able to run a full winter and summer coaching programme in 2022.   The summer programme normally starts in late April/ early May and runs through to the end of August and is outdoor at the club.      Most sessions for younger children (up to school year 6) take place on weekends with older children training on midweek evenings.   

  • Membership fees must be paid in full prior to the start of the season.   
  • Private coaching should be discussed with our Head Coach James Bell  

  • Any children in School Years 1 & 2 can enroll in our All Stars Group which runs  on Saturday mornings for 8 weeks between May and early July.     

2022 Junior Fees

2022 fees can be found under Membership Subs (will be announced Jan 22).  
Fees can be paid by bank transfer to Berkhamsted Cricket Club, Account number 20878561, Sort code 20-39-07. Make sure you indicate the name of the player whose subs are being paid in the Reference box and email Mark at rmlewarne@gmail.com to let him know you have paid.

Coaching fees also include all junior match fees.   Juniors can start playing for adult teams from U14 (year 9) and pay a small match fee.  

Cricket Weeks

Our Cricket Weeks in the holidays are also subject to a separate charge.  We normally run a 4 day course at Easter, and 3 cricket weeks in the summer holidays.   Priority for bookings will be given to paid-up Cricket Club members until the end of April. After that, the Cricket Weeks will be advertised outside the club.  

Match Selection Policy 2022

We enter boys and girls teams into the Hertfordshire Junior League.  Whilst our policy is to provide games for as many children as possible we also try to promote excellence and competitive play. So where possible we have an A and B team, with the A team being selected on ability and the B team being an opportunity for inexperienced or improving players to develop their skills.  As players develop over time we constantly re-assess ability levels to ensure the teams have the right balance. Each team is organised by a VOLUNTEER parent (or parents) who is responsible for picking the team and over-seeing the game on the day. There is no limit on the number of teams we can enter but without the support of parents these games simply cannot take place.
