Girls interested in playing cricket have been invited to join a free coaching clinic on Friday, November 5, from 5pm-7pm at North Dalton Park in Wollongong. 

This is an opportunity for all girls in the Shoalhaven and Illawarra to come together and plan for a weekly Sixers Girls Cricket League.

Girls aged 10 to 15 years of all cricketing abilities from complete beginners to rep players are invited along.

Cricket NSW will be providing some coaching and there will be an opportunity to have a quick game.

Meantime, you can still sign up for Milo in2Cricket and T20 Blast which has kicked off in the Shoalhaven.

Milo in2Cricket introduces girls and boys aged 5-8 years to cricket.  It’s fun, kids learn the basic cricket skills and is available for kids of all abilities.  The nine-week program is being run on Wednesdays, 5pm-6.30pm at Huskisson Oval (by Bay and Basin CC); Fridays, 4.30pm-6pm at Berry Sporting Complex (Berry Shoalhaven Heads CC); Fridays, 5.30pm-7pm at Bernie Regan fields (North Nowra Cambewarra CC); and Saturdays 9.30am-11am Hayden Drexel Oval (Shoalhaven Ex-Servicemen’s CC).    

T20 Blast is for 7-12-year-olds and is faster, harder and more fun.  Last Friday was the first Northern Shoalhaven session at the Berry Sporting Complex.  Boys and girls can still come along this afternoon, play some cricket, have some fun and get a free sausage sandwich and ice block.  It all starts at 4.30pm and goes until 6pm.
