Fully qualified Club coaches will conduct the sessions, with parents being invited to get involved - if they want to. The emphasis of All Stars Cricket is to learn to play the game in a fun, safe and inclusive environment, enabling children to learn the social development skills that playing sport brings. Each session of the 8-week programme will give children the basic skills they need to develop a lifelong love of cricket.

Mike Knight, Newport Cricket Clubs Head Coach commented ‘Through the All Stars Programme, Cricket will be available to children (Boys and Girls) as young as 5 years of age. Cricket is a fun and exciting game and our coaches plan to offer a warm welcome and an enjoyable experience to children playing Cricket for the first time. Who knows, our All Stars Cricket Programme might unearth the next Joe Root or Ben Stokes.’’

The All Stars Programme is a great initiative and ECB hopes to have 50,000 children trying Cricket all over the country. Minister for Sport, Tracey Crouch said: “All Stars Cricket is exactly the type of programme we are keen to see more of. It is vital to encourage children to have a happy, healthy and active lifestyle from an early age. All Stars Cricket proposes to do just that and I’m sure parents will jump at the chance to sign their kids up.”
