Boxmoor CC Juniors
Junior cricket was reintroduced to Boxmoor in 2008 and we achieved Club Mark accreditation three years later. Our ambition is to foster a life long love of the game. In 2017 we introduced the "Boxmoor Blackbirds", a social Sunday side intended to provide a stepping stone between junior and senior cricket, as well as our Saturday 4XI who play in the Herts League in Regional Division 12.
All boys and girls are welcome, regardless of experience and ability. If you are interested in joining please get in touch with Head of Junior Cricket Stan Williamson via the contact form to the right. Outdoor practice sessions are Saturday mornings on Blackbirds Moor. Winter practice sessions are run on Monday or Tuesday evenings at Hemel School from January to April.
We have around 70 boys and girls learning the game and playing competitive games in the Hertfordshire Junior League where we are running squads from Under 9 to Under 16 for the 2022 season. In 2014 we introduced our first Girl's team and many of the girls also play in mixed teams up to two years below their age. In 2017 we joined the ECB's All Stars Cricket initiative, offering an introduction to children aged 5-8 and these sessions take place on Saturday mornings.
Age groups, by school year, are as follows:
Year 2 and below - All Stars
Year 2, 3 & 4 – Under 9
Years 5 – Under 10
Years 6 – Under 11
Year 7 – Under 12
Year 8 – Under 13
Year 9 - Under 14
Years 10 - Under 15
Year 11 - Under 16
Girls' cricket is run jointly with our neighbours Hemel Hempstead Town CC, under the banner "Grand Union" with three squads in 2020 at u11, u13 and u15.
We have three ECB Level Two Coaches (Nick Cottrell, Sam Pimm, William Allen) and they are assisted by an ECB Level One coach (Aidan Pimm) and two Coach Support Workers (Phil Owen, Chris Bryon and John).
