What is ‘All Stars Cricket’?
‘All Stars Cricket’ is the name given by the ECB for their (brand new) structured cricket programme specifically aimed at children between the ages of 5 and 8. Whilst it includes development of 9 out of the 10 key fundamental movement skills, the emphasis is on fun – the ECB’s stated aim is to get as many children as possible interested in and enjoying cricket both now and into the future.
Every newly signed up child will be sent (directly by the ECB) an ‘All Stars’ branded kit – which includes a back pack, bat, ball, cap, water bottle and (personalised!) top (note: the bats are available in different sizes, and you may notice that they are slightly wider than normal bats – which gives an insight into the thinking that’s gone into the programme). The children will also be awarded badges as the sessions progress to reward them for their respective achievements.
In addition, the ECB will provide dedicated training to all of our lead coaches and also provide ongoing support.
