Run a Girls’ Only Dynamos Programme

Tuesday 1st February 2022

Dynamos Cricket is the ECB programme for 9-11 year olds, following on from the highly successful All Stars Cricket (5-8 year olds) programme.

For cricket clubs looking to grow or start a girls’ section, a Dynamos Programme could be hugely beneficial in this process, and there is the option for the programme to be set up exclusively for girls.

Complementing your existing junior cricket programmes, Dynamos can provide girls with a more social offer, focused on developing fundamental movement skills and applying them in an exciting game of countdown cricket, with soft balls and light wooden bats.

The programme would entail eight 60 – 90 minute sessions, held over eight weeks. Once set up, Dynamos is a safe and fully accredited programme, with easy online registration. It also recognises the important of participants looking like the heroes of the game, so every girl who registers will receive their very own Dynamos Cricket New Balance t-shirt, personalised with their name and number.

In order to run a Dynamos Programme, Kent Cricket would support your club to train up activators for free. A less time consuming and intensive process than it would be qualifying as a cricket coach, the participants would complete the below:

– Online Webinar (approx. 1 hour)
– Face to Face Training (approx. 2 hours)
– Online Training Module (approx. 1 hour)

If your club are interested in setting up a Girls Only Dynamos for 2022, or looking ahead to future years, please get in touch with Adam Hodder from the Kent Cricket Community Team.
