The junior section at Sonning CC offers cricket to boys and girls of all abilities from age 5 up to 15.
Our aim is to promote cricket for all in a friendly and enjoyable environment where all children have an opportunity to take part in the game of cricket and develop new skills irrespective of their starting ability. In the medium term, we plan to produce a constant stream of new talent for the senior sides at the club. A number of our juniors have already made their debuts for the senior sides and this season we have juniors selected for the Berkshire CCC winter/spring training squads across all age groups.
We have held the ECB Clubmark status since 2012, with our latest accreditation being confirmed in October 2019, which is a testimony to our determination to run a professional operation even though we are entirely volunteer-run with all funds being used to support the cricket.
We are particularly keen to find parents with an active interest in cricket who would like to lead a team because as we increase the number of children we have (130 as of 2019) we need more managers to run the sides! You do not need to be a qualified coach, a current or former club cricketer with some enthusiasm would be perfect. However, if you wish to qualify as a coach we would try to give you financial support. We are also looking to expand the management committee and the coaching/parental roster and anyone with an interest in cricket would be welcomed with open arms.
