Prince's Mead School
Cricket Hoppers run a progressive programme for children aged 3-8. Our 45 minute classes are split into three parts:
Fundamental movement and motor skills relating to cricket
Wide range of cricket skills and drills
Playing games that will develop tactical awareness, concentration and team work
Through differentiated activities, our classes will stimulate learning and progress of all ages and stages of development.
As our classes are indoors, we can offer a programme all year round, and of course we'll utilise the fab outdoor spaces on sunnier days.
Our 45 minute classes are split into three parts:
1) Fundamental movement and motor skills relating to cricket.
We recognise the importance of a fun, dynamic warm up. We have a full range of equipment such as ladders, cones, bean bags and wobble boards, to ensure all children are ready and focused for the challenge of the class.
2) Wide range of cricket skills and drills
This lies at the heart of what we do. Getting all of our children to learn the basics and beyond. We have a wide range of cricket equipment to aid learning. We will coach a full range of fielding, batting and bowling skills, ensuring all sessions are differentiated to stimulate, challenge and progress learning.
3) Playing games that will develop tactical awareness, concentration and team work
Games are an essential part of every class, with the aim of providing a learning opportunity both when wining and losing takes place. Through playing games, we encourage respect for opponents together with valuing the importance of the spirit of cricket. Learning to work with others in a caring and co-operative manner, is something we believe should be introduced at an early age.
