GIRLS JUNIOR CRICKET 2018
The NE Wales Junior Girls Cricket 'Hub' continues to thrive and progress! With the support of Cricket Wales, our Hub has now obtained National Development Centre (NDC) status and we are recognised as a main provided of girls cricket in Wales.
Starting with a handful of girls, we have progressed steadily over the last few years. The ‘Hub’ continues to be run in the name of North East Wales Junior Cricket with organised coaching and games taking place at various clubs across the region who have kindly offered the use of their facilities. Club & Regional coaches continue to be involved, providing a high level of coaching expertise to the girls involved, who train and compete in a girls only environment.
After coaching within the 'Hub,' girls have the opportunity to progress through the girls/ladies structure to join a ladies team. For those girls who wish to remain in the girls/ladies set up, we will facilitate this for them. Some of our older girls are now undertaking their cricket coaching courses and helping out with the coaching. We hope to see them as Hub coaches in the future.
For the last 4 years, North East Wales Girls have entered teams into the Cheshire Girls Junior League at U13 and U15 level with great success and we will be doing this again in 2018.
We are always looking to expand and enhance the cricketing experience for our girls and in 2017 we ran very successful Women & Girls Softball tournaments, which we hope to repeat over the Winter and again in 2018.
We are currently indoors for our Winter training programme at Argoed High School. We are always looking for new girls to join us, so please spread the word around. Any new girls will be most welcome to come to our coaching sessions.
We are always looking for new players, so come along and join us!
