Dunnington Cricket Club provides excellent opportunities for juniors to receive coaching and play competitive matches in the York Leagues. All coaching is provided by qualified ECB trained coaches who have been screened for the suitability of working with children. We can cater for children from under 9s up to under 15s age groups and we are committed to developing all young talent to make sure they get the best out of their abilities.
We also run the "Chance To Shine" scheme which is a programme that delivers quality coaching into a number of local primary schools. It introduces hundreds of children to cricket and allows some to play competitive cricket for the very first time.
2015 saw our juniors coached by the players of the world famous Queen's Park Cricket Club in a morning that they are unlikely to forget in a hurry. Over 50 of our youngsters were treated to masterclasses in all areas of the game by the men from Trinidad, many of whom play first class cricket in their home country. This is just one example of the type of opportunities that budding young cricketers can expect to receive at Dunnington CC which are unrivalled in the York area.
We have also taken numerous junior tours to the Caribbean to give young cricketers the opportunity to experience playing in another country against young cricketers like themselves. This is something we're looking to continue in the coming years and as such there will be the opportunity for young players and their families to experience this if there is sufficient demand.
