Outwood Youth Cricket Academy

Introduction
Outwood Youth Academy provides cricket coaching for boys and girls aged 6 to 15 and has been running over 10 years, with many of its members graduating to playing in the Club’s senior teams. For information on teams please go to the relevant team section.

Our Sponsors
The Academy is proud of its long-standing relationship with KMG Chartered Financial Planners, which has been the Academy’s principal sponsor since the Academy was founded.

Cost
The cost of the Academy is £88 per child for the Academy season, which runs from mid-April through to July. The Academy welcomes both boys and girls.

Coaching
The U7 to U13 age groups train on Thursday Academy Evenings from 6.30 to 8.00pm, starting in Thursday 19th April 2018, while the U14s and U15s train on Wednesday Club Evenings from 6.00pm to 8pm, starting on Wednesday 18th April 2018.

The coaching team is led by John Hall and Paul Griffiths and also includes Alex Wood, Simon Williams and Paul Howard, all of who possess ECB Level 2 or Level 3 coaching qualifications.

The Club encourages club members and parents to undertake ECB recognised qualifications including Coach Support Worker and ECB Level 2. The Academy recognises the invaluable contribution made club members and parents to the running of the Academy and welcomes all contributions no matter how large or small.

Competitive Cricket
The Academy is committed to ensure that all children will have an opportunity to play competitive cricket.

Kit
Cricket inherently involves a certain amount of kit. The club has some kit, so it is not essential to purchase bats, pads, etc. straightaway for newcomers. However, for those playing with a hard ball, protective boxes are a good first purchase, as they are items best not shared! Please note that helmets are mandatory for wicket keepers and batsmen when playing hardball cricket (U10's and above).
