Cricket All Stars and Dynamos

We are very happy to inform you that All Stars cricket will be returning to East Dean and Friston cricket club this summer following the formation of an organising committee consisting of 8 volunteers including parents, club members, retired coaches and teachers living in the village. 


Following the cancellation of the programmes last year, the club would like to offer the parents/carers of the class of 2019 the opportunity to sign their children up for the 2021 course!


The programme will be structured in the same way as 2019 – an hour session each Sunday for eight weeks, starting at 11:00am with plenty of tea and cake on offer for spectators! The first session will be on 23rd May and the last on 11th July. All sessions will be held at the East Dean and Friston Cricket club.


We are aware that some of the children who attended the All Stars sessions in 2019 may now be too old to participate in this years programme (for children aged 5 to 8) – so club has also committed to running Dynamos sessions for children aged 8 to 11!


*If your child is 8 years old and has played cricket (or is a keen sportsperson) before we suggest signing them up for the Dynamos course*


The £40 fee covers all the sessions as well as a personalised kit bundle that will be sent straight to your door.
