Dynamos Cricket

Run at many Bromley clubs from May to July each year, Dynamos Cricket provides a fantastic next step for all those graduating from All Stars Cricket and the perfect introduction for all 8-11 year-olds new to the sport!

Since its inception, the Area Cricket Programme (ACP) has grown in stature and been established as the foundation of the Talent Pathway in Kent, helping to develop young cricketers and prepare them to move up the pathway into the County Age Group, Academy and Senior County Squads.

The ACP is vital in providing a higher standard of competition than school and junior club cricket, to challenge and enable development of talented players, helping to prepare them to compete for places in the County Age Group Squads.

The ACP is a competitive environment where players are allowed to develop in competitive matches that challenge them to reach their potential and teach them to win and lose respectfully. Competitions are played as festivals and finals days between area squads pitting them against the best from other areas of Kent.

Each area runs training sessions during the autumn, that are available to school and club cricketers who would like to progress to the next level. From these sessions, area coaches will select their squads for the following summer who will receive bespoke training sessions before taking part in festivals playing against the other areas.

Club or school coaches or teachers may recommend to players that they seek to progress their cricket further, or if parents and guardians believe their children have the potential to train and compete at the next level, they can sign them up for the sessions.

Players do not have to be put forward or ‘nominated’, however area leads welcome recommendations from schools and clubs if they have talented young players.
All the Area managers welcome new contact from clubs and school teachers in their area, so whether you have noticed a 9-year-old with a natural eye for the ball in a PE lesson, or have an accomplished year 6 player then please get in touch with your area manager.
