FRIDAY, JANUARY 25: The Bermuda Cricket Board’s free programme for young children returns in March.

The Pee Wee 'Have-a-go' Cricket Programme is for children ages 5 - 7 will take place at Berkeley Institute Gym every Saturday in March, starting on March 2 and finishing on March 30, 2012.

The sessions will run as follows: five-year olds from 2pm to 3pm and six-to-seven-year-olds from 3:15pm to 4:15pm

A spokesperson for the BCB said: “During the session, the players will be introduced to the basics of cricket with the main aim of having fun. Utilising the "Have-a-go" Cricket equipment, coaches will work with the players on learning the basics skills of catching, bowling and batting with the aim of playing a game in the last session. The emphasis of "Have-a-go" Cricket is on participation and enjoyment.

“On the last day parents and their children will participate in a parent/child game. This will be used to further strengthen the relationship between parent and child through cricket.”
