Buckie CC recognise that without encouraging Junior cricket the future of game at all levels around Buckie is at risk. One of the aims of the Club is to introduce young players to a sport that they can enjoy in a safe, well organised environment.
Coaching sessions take place outdoors with our qualified coaches during the summer months on Tuesday nights at the Club facilities at Linzee Gordon Park. This is dependant on dry weather and it is planned that it will mainly feature Kwik Cricket and is aimed at P4 through to P7. Then on Sundays at 2pm - 4pm there will be a hard ball cricket practise for Senior school players, again at the Linzee Gordon Park.
Young players start by playing Kwik Cricket. This is a simple fun version of the game using plastic bats and balls and introduces youngsters to the basic principles of the game.
They then progress to Inter Cricket and are introduced to using the protective equipment such as pads and gloves and also a harder ball. Buckie CC will be producing U13 and U11 teams to compete in the Moray league and have also committed to participating in monthly Kwik Cricket competitions.
A small one off fee of £5 is required which covers coaching and use of the facilities for the whole summer.
Interested parents are more than welcome to attend and take part too!! If you need more information feel free to just contact us by email using the contact page.
