All Stars Cricket gives girls and boys from the ages of five to eight an opportunity to become a star. The curriculum of fun cricket activities and games provides your children with the basic movement skills to begin a lifelong love of our sport and general physical activity.
For an hour a week over an eight-week period, our fully trained and vetted activators will deliver game-based activities that teach basic cricket skills including catching, throwing and hitting moving balls and social skills such as teamwork and communication. Held at accredited cricket clubs, these courses are the perfect way for your child to learn about cricket and make friends in a safe and, most importantly, fun environment.
All participants will receive an All Stars Cricket branded pack including a cricket bat, ball, shirt, cap, backpack and water bottle
All Stars Cricket will provide your child with all of the fundamental skills they need to play. Through lively, fun games, they will learn about cricket and be better prepared to take part in all sports. Over the eight-week programme, the trained activators will teach your child to:
– Catch and throw a ball
– Hit a moving ball
– Bowl with a straight arm
– Play a basic game of cricket
– Work and communicate as a team
– Have lots of fun with new friends
All Stars Cricket is also fantastic for parents. For an hour a week all mums and dads are invited to get involved and play cricket with their children. We know this is a great way to spend time with your child and create memories that will last a lifetime.

2018 Round up
With the 2018 season coming to a close, it’s been a fantastic year for All Stars Cricket within Northamptonshire. We had 42 All Stars Centres across the county with 1051 5 to 8-year olds signing up to the programmes, nearly doubling our 550 sign ups from 2017.
With only 44% of the sign ups from 2017 being retained, 2018 saw over 800 childrent who were brand new to All Stars Cricket. What’s even more positive to see, is 22% of the total sign ups were female.
There were a number of Clubs around the County who had 30+ children sign up to the programme, with plenty of clubs doubling their numbers from 2017. A special mention must go to Northampton Saints, who had 59 sign ups, and West Haddon and Guilsborough who had 61 sign ups. With lots of volunteers and fantastic organisation, they were able to deliver engaging and enjoyable All Stars Cricket sessions for the children.
To add to their success, West Haddon and Guilsborough were invited to the Kia Oval on Friday 7th September to see the final test of the summer between England and India. Seventeen of their All Stars gained free entry with their parents and were lucky enough to play on the outfield during the lunch interval.
A massive congratulations must go to David Love and his team of activators, they made All Stars a huge success which lead to the opportunity at the Kia Oval.
We would also like to thank all of the Activators and volunteers who helped deliver All Stars Cricket across the 42 centres. Without them, none of this success would be possible.
