Female Camp Prepares Cricketers for season

27 Apr
The first female hardball cricket camp took place over the weekend of 23rd/24th April at Stirling County CC.  Players from all over Scotland came along to the two day camp to get ready for the 2016 season - players came from as far as the Black Isle in the North to Gatehouse of Fleet in the South. 

Over the course of the weekend 36 cricketers participated in a mixture of drills, skills and match play, giving everyone an opportunity to learn something new and then put it into practice during small sided games.
 
The emphasis on the camp was for all players to gain confidence in their own skills and gain and understanding of the tactical side of the game as well as umpiring and scoring. 
 
Women’s Cricket Manager Kari Carswell who organised the weekend was ecstatic with the response, “It was 2 great days of cricket for everyone involved.  There was a lot of activity and a lot of learning from everyone who came along. 
To get over 30 girls’ and women to come along was superb and I’d like to think new friendships have been created and participants are raring to go for the 2016 season.  Stirling County CC is a super venue and to have the camp and the senior women’s regional game going on as well on Sunday, it was a super day all round”.
 
Thanks to Katie McGill, Lorna Jack, Kathryn White, Shelly McGhee & Stuart Scott for helping with the coaching, scoring and umpiring. Also thanks to Rosie Scott for the photos.
