Cricket camps and clubs for kids
Find summer cricket camps for beginners and more advanced players
Cricket can be great fun. It’s a sport that children of all ages can enjoy. Luckily, in Canada, there are lots of cricket camps and clubs to choose from. While most of these are summer camps, you can also find winter, March break, and after school cricket lessons and programs.
What is cricket?
Cricket has some similarities to the sport of baseball, popular in North America. Cricket is a game with a bat and ball and two teams with eleven players each. It’s played on a field with a pitch in the centre with a target called a “wicket.”
Like baseball, cricket matches are divided into innings, in which a team bats and tries to score as runs. The object is to score as many runs as possible. Cricket matches normally last much longer than baseball games. Sometime they can last as long as four or five days
What does a cricket camp have to offer?
Cricket is a great summer activity. In a summer cricket camp in Canada, your child will receive cricket training from experienced coaches. Depending on their experience level, they’ll either learn the basics of cricket or learn its finer points.
In either case, they’ll take part in a wide range of drills and workouts. They’ll also learn some important skills:
- Centre wicket play
- Wicket keeping
Likely, your child will also take part in cricket matches and games, though much shorter than regular matches. If they’re an advanced player, they may also participate in cricket leagues and tournaments, and play with other high-level kids.
No matter your child’s age or level, they’re sure to have great fun at a cricket camp. Some other perks of cricket camps and clubs include the following:
- Improved fitness
- Improved skill level
- Learning teamwork
- Leadership opportunities
- Boosting confidence
