What is All Stars Cricket?

 

All Stars Cricket provides a fantastic first experience for all children aged 5-8 years old where they’re guaranteed 8 weeks of jam-packed fun, activity and skills development. The programme is designed to introduce children to the sport, teaching them new skills, helping them make new friends and have a great time doing so.

MHCC and All Stars...

Each year we are involved with the England & Wales Cricket Board's entry level participation programme "All Stars Cricket" which is aimed at providing boys and girls aged 5-8 with a great first experience with cricket. It is an 8 week course with one hour sessions each Friday from 5-6pm starting on Friday 10th May.

 

Every child that registers will receive a backpack full of goodies. Your child’s pack will include:

 

  • Backpack

  • Cricket bat

  • Cricket ball

  • Personalised shirt with your child’s name

All children returning to All Stars again, will receive a new bat, ball, personalised t-shirt and a set of stumps.

What will my child be doing?

All Stars is all about giving children the best first experience of the sport, with an emphasis on fun!

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
