Radlett CC - Radlett Coaching Team

Junior Coaching
Our junior section is the lifeblood of our club and our aim is to take children from beginners at the age of 5 all the way through to our senior set-up while having a lot of fun on the way.

We run teams in the Herts Leagues from U9 to U17s and have a proud history of winning multiple titles at all age groups.

Last season all four of our senior teams featured players who started off as beginners at Radlett and two of our recent youth graduates, Josh De Caires and Noah Cornwell have gone on to earn pro contracts with Middlesex.

We have an experienced and enthusiastic team of qualified coaches, led by Nick Fielden and Tom Jenkins who are happy to help beginners and more experienced players alike.

Our boys and girls' minis section (school years reception to year 4) train on Friday evenings in the summer.

Older boys (school years 5-10) train on Sunday mornings and our U16-19 academy players train on Thursday evenings in the summer.

Our girls' softball training (year 6 and below) is on Sunday mornings and hardball training for older girls is on Wednesday evenings in the summer. 

All junior players will be given one of our stylish yellow playing shirts as part of their membership.  U9s upwards and girls will also receive a pair of dark blue trousers.

We have been running autumn and winter coaching sessions on Sunday afternoons this year; these are open to non-members but places are limited. See our Parent Zone for details of the Spring courses which are open for booking now and start on 14th January 2024.
Outdoor summer training for club members starts on 12th/14th April and lasts for 16 weeks. 

Matches will be held on Sundays or weekday evenings. Younger age groups play 8-a-side softball pairs cricket which is designed to make sure everyone gets an equal chance to bat and bowl. Older age groups play 11-a-side hardball T20 games.

Our excellent net facilities are available to all club members (book a slot via the website) and our coaches are also available for reasonably priced one-to-one sessions for those who want them.

We encourage parents to get involved, whether it is as team managers, spectators, or enjoying a drink and food from the Teatro team at Friday training or a coffee and a bacon sandwich on Sunday mornings.

Our Young Player memberships will be open from the end of February. Each of the team managers are listed on the Junior Cricket Contacts page. 

We have a Facebook group which has information on events and updates from the club and teams here: Radlett Cricket Club Members | Facebook .

The age group that your child will enter is based on the current academic school year. e.g. Year 4 this academic year (2022-23) equates to U9's age group for this season (2023).

Schools Coaching Programme

We work alongside a number of local schools, promoting cricket and Radlett Cricket Club. Our aim is to reach a wider range of children, who may not have thought about joining Radlett Cricket Club or even thought about playing cricket. The more children we have playing cricket, the better the standard will become for everyone.

Our services range from After School Clubs to Cricket Taster Days.  If your child's school may be interested, please ask them to contact Dwayne or Heather at radlettcricketclubjuniors@gmail.com. 

The schools that we currently work with are:

- Aldenham School
- Edge Grove School
- Fairfield School
- Habs' Boys' School
- Manor Lodge School
- Newberries School
