Mini Hoppers

Due to such a fantastic response to our Cricket Hopper classes we're delighted to introduce a mid week, Mini Hoppers class, specially designed for pre-schoolers aged 3 & 4. 

Classes will take place on Tuesday mornings at Winchester Racquet and Fitness from the 3rd March 2020.

These classes have been designed around our existing programme but are tailored to younger players. There's an emphasis on making cricket fun with lots of active games, rewards and recognition.  We do ask that parents stay for these sessions and you're very welcome to get as involved as you like.  
As our classes are indoors, we can offer a programme all year round.
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 age appropriate 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.
Mini hopper classes take place at Winchester Racquets and Fitness.  Classes are held on Tuesday mornings at 10:45 - 11:30am.  Our spring term runs from 3rd March - 31st March 2020 and costs £35.
