No upcoming training
Welcome to Petersfield Under 9s Colts cricket team which caters for boys and girls and school years 3 and 4.
The U9 coaches are John Childs, Don Crawford and Dan May, with John also acting as the team manager. Our aim is to provide a safe and fun environment for children of all abilities to learn and develop their skills in cricket. Our mantra is embodied in the pneumonic ‘FESTIVAL’ which is intended to capture the image of a fun, vibrant and energetic party:
F is for Fun – cricket must be fun for all at all times
E is for Exercise – cricket allows us to be fit and healthy
S is for Skills – we learn the cricketing skills to be confident and capable
T is for Team – cricket is a team game that relies on all of us to work together
I is for Individual – The team needs our unique individual skills and personalities
V is for Valued – we must value each other and be valued ourselves
A is for Ambition – we want to do well and be the best we can
L is for Loyalty – we must be loyal to our friends and team, and to our Club
The 2017 outdoor season is from 28 April until 28 July and we train weekly at the Heath, 1800-1915 on Fridays. Additionally we have a series of matches against other clubs throughout the season which are detailed in the attached Word document. Matches are 8 a-side and everyone bowls and bats.
The U9s are a vibrant and energetic squad and we welcome everyone. We also very much welcome and encourage parents to be involved whether it is simply making use of the pavilion bar and enjoying a picnic whilst the children train on Fridays, or driving to away matches, making teas, scoring or being able to help more broadly with the Club in general. Opportunities are available for parents who might wish to become coaches themselves (it’s a 3 day course run over 3 consecutive Saturdays at the Ageas Bowl in October/November), and for parents who might be wanting to start or get back into cricket themselves we have a Sunday friendly side and 4 Saturday league sides (including a Ladies team) – see the rest of the website for details.
So welcome again, and do please become involved in and support your cricket club, and do please contact us if you have any queries at all.
To contact, please email John (see right). Enjoy your cricket!
