All Stars Membership
About All Stars Cricket
All Stars Cricket was a brand-new initiative from the England and Wales Cricket Board which aimed at providing children aged five to eight with a great first experience in cricket.
Albrighton Cricket Club signed up to be an All Stars Centre in 2017 with Helen Hurford and Karyn Shimmons being trained as All Star Activators. The programme featured:
- Coaching for all children aged five to eight
- Eight one-hour sessions, held over eight weeks
- Emphasis on fun and being active
- Focus on developing your child's movement skills
- Great first introduction to cricket
- Safe and fully accredited
- Valuable time with your kids – mums and dads are encouraged to take part too
To be an All Stars member each child registered online and paid £40 direct to the ECB, the club received £5 from the ECB for every child that signed up for the All Stars Programme at their centre. Every child that registered received a backpack full of goodies including a cricket bat, ball, water bottle, personalised shirt and cap which was all sent straight to their door.
The ECB are running the programme again for 2018 which will be £40 per child paid direct to the ECB. This year the club will ask for Parents/Guardians who register their child for the All Stars Programme through the ECB also sign up to the club's Parent/Guardian Membership of £10.00. The ECB are currently finalising what each child will receive on registration.
