Welcome to the Westies, the junior section of Westquarter & Redding Cricket Club. We look forward to providing an introduction to cricket in a fun and safe way with opportunity to improve skills and learning to work together in a team. Cricket is a game for both girls and boys and the Westies have always had a good percentage of girls with 31 girls out of 90 Westies last year. From the age of 5 through to seniors we can provide fun filled sessions to engage and stimulate. All Stars cricket is a great introduction to cricket which includes the whole family! All Stars Cricket is a Cricket Scotland backed aimed at introducing cricket to children aged 5 to 8 years old. The programme is unlike any other kids' sporting activity in Scotland built on solid foundations of social and physical development for children giving them the opportunity to develop 9 of the 10 key fundamental movement skills in a safe, fun environment. For an hour a week over an eight-week period, our fully trained and vetted activators will deliver game-based activities that teach basic cricket skills including: Batting – hitting a moving ball Catching – small and large balls Running – lots of movement Communication – the basics of cricket Throwing – underarm and overarm Bowling – overarm Teamwork – fun games with friends Spirit of Cricket – how to respect others There will also be a chance for youngsters to meet current Scotland internationalists as part of All Stars Cricket.
