After School Clubs
Term time courses for children to improve their cricket.
Term Time Cricket Clubs for Children
Our weekly cricket club sessions at Ballance Coaching run throughout the year during term time. During these sessions our aim is to work on all 3 aspects of the game, batting, bowling and fielding. We use fun, motivating and exciting cricket coaching techniques to inspire each child to obtain their specific goals. The bowling machine is a favourite among all the children and this is incorporated in a practical way to assist each child with their batting. The final session of each term is a match play session allowing everyone to put their new found skills to the test.
