2011 saw the start of a major change in the way Masham Cricket Club wanted to evolve. We wanted to prioritise the development of junior cricket within the club. Our focus has moved to encouraging and supporting the development of junior cricket in and around Masham whilst remembering our ultimate goal is to strengthen the whole club. It started in the Summer of 2011 with a small number of under 11 players and has expanded to where last season we had 70+ players registered, ranging from 5 to 15 year olds. The progress is great and our aim to have the youngsters of today playing and competing for Masham for many years to come, is on track. We now have a second cricket square at the recreation ground to meet the demand for junior cricket in Masham and we are developing a permanent grass practice area alongside our existing net.
Saturday mornings are our normal junior coaching day which commences each year in mid April. Under 7 and under 9 coaching commences at 9.00 am and finishes at 10.00 am, whilst under 15, 13 and 11 coaching will take place between 10.00 and 11.30.
Our junior sides will be sponsored by Swinton Park. We are grateful for their support.
Subs for 2017 were £15 for the year.
The club provide sufficient Coaches and Coach Support Workers (all DBS checked) to ensure all the young players who attend will receive high quality coaching and the opportunity to participate. Players of all ability are welcome. Masham Cricket Club are signed up to the English Cricket Boards Safe Hands initiative which is there to protect children. Club policies to protect children are available on request.
We encourage all players to to enjoy the game and get involved.
