All Stars Cricket is the new programme providing children aged five to eight across Scotland with a great first experience in the game. This format is absolutely perfect for girls and provides a fun and vibrant introduction to the game.
Cricket Scotland run an annual `Girls` Kwik Cricket Festival` which is open to any girl 5-12 years old to come along and play some cricket. It is done in a fun and relaxed environment and all girls, no matter what level of experience, are cater for. The day involves loads of games, fun activities and opportunities to mix with our National Women`s Team players.
A number of clubs and regions offer girls` only leagues at junior level. These are normally eight a-side competitions held during the winter (indoor cricket) and summer (pairs cricket or T20) that focus on skill development, participation and fun.
Cricket Scotland, in conjunction with local development groups across the country, also provide u16 Regional Development Centres to provide further girls` only coaching and fixtures for those girls that want to progress their cricket. There is no selection process for this, you simply register with the local centre.
