Week long courses run during the school holidays for children to improve their cricket.
Holiday Cricket Clubs for Children
Our holiday camps at Ballance Coaching run throughout the year during the school holidays. 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 favoutite among all the children and this is incorporated in a practical way to assist each child with their batting. During our holiday camps there are lots of cricket focused team games as well as plenty of match practise.
Morning Holiday Camps
The morning holiday camps are open to our Pre-Preps (5-7 years) and Preps (8-10 years). During the 3 hour session children will be split up into small groups according to their age and ability meaning that all the children have the most enjoyment from the session.
Afternoon Holiday Camps
The afternoon holiday camps are open to our Preps (8-10 years) and Seniors (11+ years). During the 3 hour session children will be split up into small groups according to their age and ability meaning that all the children have the most enjoyment from the session. Across a given week of holiday camps we will work on all the aims for each age group.
