All Stars

A new initiative was introduced to the Barns Arena in 2017 that proved to be a huge success. The ECB launched All Star Cricket for 4-8-year olds and HBCC held a wonderfully engaging eight-week programme as an All-Star Centre, with 25 enthusiastic young players (and parents) joining in to some fun cricketing skill-based games.

This season’s project begins on Friday 16th July, with every child that registers receiving an All Stars backpack full of goodies, including a cricket bat, ball, activity book, personalised shirt and cap.

Children will learn fundamental movement skills, including catching, throwing and batting. Soft balls and plastic bats are used by everyone and all participants are given their very own cricket bag full of everything they need to play the game.

Every child will earn stars in their own activity booklet that match the skills learned during the programme:

  • Batting – hitting a moving ball.
  • Throwing – underarm and overarm.
  • Catching – small and large balls.
  • Bowling – overarm.
  • Running – lots of movement.
  • Teamwork – fun games with friends.
  • Communication – the basics of cricket.
  • Spirit of Cricket – how to respect others.

The cost of the course is £40. For more information, contact us at halebarnscc@gmail.com.
