Sydney private cricket coaching for girls
Cricket is a great team sport with a place for everyone and we’re delighted to announce the details of a girls only clinic scheduled for the October school holidays.
Cricket for girls aged 6 – 16 years
Our girl’s cricket coaching program is open to girls 6 to 16 years with all experience and ability levels catered for in an educationally sound environment. Games and drills are fast paced and provide an excellent opportunity for all participants to develop their skills, technique and confidence as well as gaining valuable game awareness.
The only girls’ cricket coaching on the North Shore
The clinic is the only one on the North Shore specifically catering for girls who are flocking to the game in ever increasing numbers and challenging the gender imbalance in this great game.
Almost a quarter of all cricket participants are now female, with the sport enjoying a nine per cent growth in that demographic to almost 315,000 players and officials, which make up 24 per cent of the sport.
All Geoff Spotswood coaching programs aim to provide players of all abilities and ages with a positive cricketing experience. This is delivered by highly qualified, passionate and engaging coaches.
Where are the girls cricket clinics held?
There are a variety formats available for girls to play cricket with modified rules at the entry level. These are designed specifically for girls and are fast, competitive and focus on maximising enjoyment.
