LEARN TO PLAY CRICKET! THE FASTEST GROWING SPORT IN THE WORLD!
West Vancouver Cricket Club has the largest junior cricket program in Vancouver with three teams playing. Over 40 young players from across Metro Vancouver are enrolled in our program and play in the spring / summer season (May to July).
The main aim of the club is to provide healthy recreation in an enjoyable, optimistic environment while playing a sport! With the help of our junior coaches, senior cricketers and hopefully some enthusiastic parents, we are confident of another outstanding year ahead.
Kids aged 6 - 12 years participate in Kanga Cricket, which is played with a plastic bat and a soft ball.
This is the ideal way to introduce your child to the basic skills of cricket.
Fun, skills based activities are followed by a modified game
The games are fast paced and designed to keep the children going!
Our coaches teach children how to throw, catch, bowl and bat with safety
Children are placed in teams of 8 - 12 players
This method provides both a learning and enjoyable environment for all our budding cricketers!
Kids aged 12 -17 years old play the regulation game with a wooden bat and a hard ball. This program is geared towards those who possess past experience in the game. Training sessions include batting and bowling in the nets as well as on field drills.
We have a combination of professional and volunteer coaches. All volunteers are trained and accredited coaches.
SATURDAY MORNING LEAGUE
At present we participate in the Vancouver and District Saturday Morning League with the Dolphins team, Superstrikers from Coquitlam and St George's School hardball team. During the season we play games around Metro Vancouver as well as hosting a team from Victoria, BC and travelling to Victoria to play a return game.
Several junior players from the program have gone on to play at senior level in the British Columbia Mainland Cricket League.
Registration for the 2016 season will take place on in late April or early May at the clubhouse at Hugo Ray Park. The cost of the program is $100 per child for the season. There is still room to register more players for the 2016 season.
