JUNIOR CRICKET

Bahrain Rugby Club Junior Cricket Section runs on Tuesday evenings split between the ages 7-11 (4.30-5.30PM) and 12+ (5.30-6.30PM).  Both age groups have very healthy numbers which are growing week on week. They also aim to play games on Friday afternoons every 2 weeks to get the kids to experience playing matches and give them an opportunity to practice their skills.

As with all sports, we are looking for new tournaments to play in, and we also aim to introduce our own tournament for the junior section.

The coaching group is very strong within our junior cricket section, as with the netball section, a number of the older group often assist with the younger group.  It is great to see the kids giving something back to help the younger players develop.

7 TO 11 YEARS

This is very much a group aimed at introducing new players to the game, and is again all about having fun! Coaching both boys and girls together, we currently have over 20 players in our squad from all different backgrounds, and with all varying degrees of cricketing ability. Players as young as four are accepted based on an evaluation by one of our coaches.

We train every Tuesday evening during the season at 4.30pm and try to include a few skills-based development activities, as well as short games.

12 YEARS+

The intermediate group heads off to the club’s practice nets to learn more about the basics of batting and bowling, whilst coaching drills are held either on the hard courts or the grass. Players are encouraged to learn all aspects of the game, with internal small-sided matches being a regular feature on our artificial pitch.

We train every Tuesday evening during the season at 5.30pm, with a weekly nets session providing skill-based assessment and fine-tuning.
