After the success of last year’s summer holiday cricket camps, we will have more junior cricket at Clifton Alliance this summer than ever before – including three full weeks of holiday camps during the school holidays. These will allow our junior members to have fun and develop their cricket skills under the fantastic tutelage of our ECB-qualified coaches.
Booking is now open on a first-come, first-served basis and you can follow this link to sign up.
Camps will take place on the following dates, with activities running from 9.30am to 3.30pm each day:
Monday 22nd July – Friday 26th July
Monday 29th July – Friday 2nd August
Monday 5th August – Friday 9th August
These camps are open to all children aged between 7 and 13, and children can be signed up to any number of days at the cost of £15 per day for junior members (£20 for non-members).
There is a 20% sibling discount for brothers and sisters of the first child you book (£12 per day for members; £16 non-members).
Early drop off (from 8.30am) and late pick-up (until 5.30pm) will also be available for an additional cost of £5 total per day per child (regardless of whether it is an early drop off, late pick up or both).
To reserve spaces for any of the above dates, click this link to the sign-up form, fill in your details, and select the dates you would like to attend. Liam will contact you to confirm the total cost and how to pay. Places will then be confirmed on payment.
