Sessions are open to all current and new members - charges to cover the cost of hiring the hall are included in the senior levy.  The exception to this is if you are currently attached to another club in the Glasgow area when a nominal charge of £5 per session will be made.

Please also note that food and drink are not allowed within the main hall and any rubbish must be placed in bins in the dressing rooms.

Junior Training

Sundays, 1245-1530

Junior Winter nets are held from January until the end of March in the Glasgow Academy Sports hall.

Sessions are free to all who wish to participate, unless you are attached to another club in the Glasgow area in which case a nominal charge of £5 per session will be made.

  • January 2017 - 15th, 22nd and 29th
  • February - 5th and 26th
  • March - 5th, 12th, 129th and 26th

Please wear suitable attire (cricket whites not necessary but please use these if you have them) for indoor sessions - no black soled shoes allowed.

Please also note that food and drink are not allowed within the main hall and any rubbish must be placed in bins in the dressing rooms.

Kit will be available for younger players e.g bats, pads, gloves, abdo gurads, helmets etc if required.  You may bring your own equipment if you wish but it is your responsibility to take away after the close of a session.

Sessions will incorporate warm-ups, skills coaching, nets on occasions and an indoor game.

Please ensure that you arrive on time for 12.45pm start and have transport available for close at 3.30pm.  It is always difficult to plan sessions when some arrive after 1pm or later!

The Juniors train on Sunday mornings at the club ground from 10.30am until 12.15/12.30pm (finish depending on afternoon matches and coach availability) and are well looked after by Vedam Hariharan, Colin Dawson, and a team of English Cricket Board/Cricket Australia accredited coaches.

In the event of a washout, sessions are moved to the Glasgow Academy Sports Hall when available.

Older juniors (ie, U15s upwards, or anyone wanting to play senior cricket - if in doubt check with your team manager!) are strongly encouraged to join in with Senior as well as Junior training.
