We cater for boys and girls from school year 4 and above who want to learn and enjoy playing cricket. New players are always welcome, whether you want to give it a go or your want to be a future England star.

From 15th February the club will be running indoor coaching sessions at Yate International Academy, from 5pm. The cricket club provides well structured and well executed coaching sessions using its team of in house ECB qualified Level 1 & 2 coaches to ensure youngsters receive the best possible coaching and get the most out of practice sessions and matches.

In the spring/summer we run ‘club nights’ at the cricket club, which are on Friday evenings from 6pm. Parents are encouraged to come along and join in – there is a BBQ and the bar will be open serving the full range of refreshments.

We run teams at u11, u13 & u15 age groups which play in the Bristol Youth Cricket League. Our youth teams enjoy a great deal of success in local competitions and many of our players are selected to play for the Gloucestershire County and South Gloucestershire youth teams. The pinnacle of our success was in 2010 when our U17s were West of England regional cup winners and reached the inter-regional stages narrowly loosing out to South Wales.

Many players go on to play for our adult teams and the youth and adult cricket is well integrated.

All the cricket club’s coaches and team managers are DBS cleared, and the cricket club has a dedicated Club Welfare Officer, to ensure safe surroundings for everyone to learn to play the game of cricket. The cricket club is affiliated to the Gloucestershire Cricket Board.
