ABOUT THE PEE WEE PROGRAMME

The Pee Wee Cricket programme is the foundation of our Youth Development Programme, which introduces the game of cricket in a fun, structured and safe environment to 5-7 year olds.

Our youth programmes provide a clear pathway for players to progress from the age of 5 through to the senior level diverting Bermuda’s at risk-youth from crime and anti-social behavior through the sport of cricket. The aim of the programme is to introduce 5-7 year olds to the basics of cricket and for them to continue playing cricket entering our Under 8, Under 11, Under 14 and Under 17 programs as they progress into early adulthood. Of these players, the most talented ones will enter into our National Academy Program. In 2018, 30% of the 6- 7 year olds progressed and competed in the Hiscox 8&Under League.

Our Cricket Programmes:

  • Are offered FREE and are accessible to all demographics, especially, at-risk children;
  • Provide positive role models and mentors to Bermuda’s youth;
  • Are developed to teach resilience, self esteem and social skills;
  • Promote healthy living and provide life skills that buffer children from problem behaviors.

Purpose

The purpose of the Pee Wee program is to provide a structured

environment for our young players to:

  • Learn the basic skills of cricket within a fun and safe setting;
  • To encourage positive social development with their peers;
  • To build relationships between parent and child; 
  • To give them a healthy outlet for their abundant energy;
  • Utilize all their muscle groups, running, jumping, throwing and balance;
  • To provide positive role models and mentors to coach during each session.

During the sessions the coaches utilize the “Have- a-go” branded cricket equipment to coach the players in the basic skills of catching, bowling and batting. The players are excited to play a modified version of the game at the end of each session.

Parents are encouraged to attend a cricket training session to learn basic drills and games in which they can take home to practice with their children.

On the last day parents and their children will participate in a parent/child fun day,which they play alongside the children in a game. This will be used to further strengthen the relationship between parent and child through cricket.

The programme will run every Saturday for five weeks in February/March from 1.00pm-4.00pm. Location TBC.
