Winter training will begin at The Swanage School on Saturday 11th October.
Sadly with so many juniors we are unable to have times for all the juniors throughout the winter but we will be having extra training sessions in January so that everyone will have an opportunity.
Training times until Christmas
U10s/U11s hard ball - Saturdays 9:15 - 10:15 starting Saturday 7th October
U12s/U13s hard ball - Saturdays 10:15 - 11:15 starting Saturday 7th October

The kitchen has been buzzing at the youth matches already this season. A couple of Saturday kitchens - thanks to Stuart, Louise, Candice and the 2 Sharon's for doing those. A couple of weeks ago saw our first ever Sunday kitchen run by Simon and Nicky We've also had a few Friday evening games thanks to Michelle, Ade, Jackie and Anna for organising those. It all helps to create a great feeling around the matches and makes Swanage a fixture they all want to play. So far the efforts of the kitchen have paid for the already much loved Zinger stumps and bails as well as lots of new Kwik Cricket bats for the recently started U6s and U7s.
The youth section has already had a great boost thanks to Geoff and Tracy for another brilliant quiz night at the White Horse which raised an amazing £918. We also managed a new set of stumps and a bat from the raffle. The money will in part be used to subsidise Swanage training tops.
A spiritualist evening organised by Michelle raised £60 - thanks to Michelle for organising it.
Once again the Youth Section has been supported by so many people and companies.
Hoodies - Purbeck Kitchens, Swanage Holiday Properties Ltd, Ellis Jones and Neaves Rowing Services Ltd
Shirts and Caps - Woodlands Landscaping and Building Services, Suttles, Linkrider, C and C Engineering and the Masala.
Youth Match Balls for the whole season have been bought by C and C Engineering Ltd
Their and your support has made it possible for the Youth Section to really flourish - Thank You.
