Summer Camps

Northants Recreational Cricket is proud to announce a band new initiative for Summer 2016, with the arrival of its “Steeler Summer Camps”. Each three day course will be planned and delivered by Northants Cricket’s fully qualified professional coaches, and will be taking place throughout the county through the summer holidays. Catering for Children between the ages of 8 and 13 in age specific groups, each player booked onto a camp will receive:

  • A goody bag containing an incrediball, a signed photo of a Northants Steelbacks player, a T-Shirt, Steeler camp wristband and more
  • Every camp which will have its own different unique prize to be won, such as kit and clothing from a Northants Steelback or England player
  • A free family ticket to either the Royal London One Day Cup game between the Northamptonshire Steelbacks and Derbyshire Falcons on 31st July 2016 or one day of a home County Championship game of their choice*
    In addition, for your convenience, we are offering the facility for you to drop off your child early (from 8:30am) and pick them up later (until 5pm), during which time we will offer them engaging activities to pass the time.

All camps will include skills development, competition and fitness training, with contingency for wet weather, and will include a visit from Steeler himself, as well as potentially other special guests. Each camp is strictly limited to 30, so book now to avoid disappointment

One camp will be held in each of our four cricketing Districts, with an additional camp at the County ground. These will be at:

Brackley Cricket Club – Wednesday 27th July, Thursday 28th July & Friday 29th July

The County Ground, Northampton** – Monday 8th August , Tuesday 9th August & Wednesday 10th August

Wellingborough Old Grammarians CC – Monday 15th August, Tuesday 16th August & Wednesday 17th August

Burton Latimer Town CC – Wednesday 24th August, Thursday 25th August & Friday 26th August

Overstone Park CC – Tuesday 30th August, Wednesday 31st August, & Thursday 1st September

The price of each camp will be £65 for all three days. Players will not require kit, although those that have their own are encouraged to bring it along. All they will need is their own lunch, and water bottle.
