Primary School Coaching Programme Launched

We are delighted to announce that we will have 6 Cregagh youth coaches going into 6 local primary schools to offer a weekly kwik cricket coaching course, starting in the first week in April.

This will involve a 6 week coaching programme that will lead up to a kwik cricket tournament at Cregagh on 6th May.  The aim is to introduce Primary School aged children to cricket for the first time in a fun and enjoyable environment, in the hope that we can get more kids playing cricket in the local area.

Orangefield PS, Loughview integrated PS, Cairnshill PS, Euston Street PS, Harding Memorial PS and Cregagh PS have all signed up and we look forward to seeing them at the tournament in May.

We would like to thank Simon Johnston from Cricket Ireland for his support in this initiative along with the Primary Schools who have all been really keen to take part in the programme.
