Here, at Philadelphia Cricket & Community Club, we are extremely proud of our commitment to our junior cricket.
Currently, 3 players of the Durham County Cricket Club senior squad, i.e. Ben Raine, Scott Borthwick and Matthew Potts, all represented Philadelphia CCC at junior level.
The Club runs 5 junior teams, i.e. U9, U11, U13, U14 and U15s.
Although there is no lower age limit to be able to play for the U11 team, coaches, in consultation with parents / guardians will assess the skill development, physical and mental readiness of the child concerned to ensure they are playing at the appropriate level.
In making a decision to ‘play up’, coaches will ensure the child continues to enjoy their cricket, the experience is positive and developmental and the child has a supportive peer network. ‘Play up’ is applicable both indoors and outdoors.
Our junior section is very much a family affair and we encourage the whole family to be part of it.
All of our junior teams are managed by fully qualified coaches. Please click here to view the Club's current qualified coaches.
All juniors regardless of gender, ability or experience are welcome.
