Why is Dynamos good for my child?
Dynamos will provide your child with all of the fundamental skills they need to play. Over the programme, the trained activators will teach your child to:
- Develop skills of batting, catching, bowling and throwing
- Take part in countdown cricket with a game played each week
- Learn the basics of game play and scoring
- Work and communicate as a team
Can parents and guardians be involved?
Dynamos Cricket is fantastic for parents. For 60-90 minutes a week, all mums, dads and guardians 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. Parent activators (helpers) will support the fully accredited lead activator in delivering the session, supporting and encouraging children as they learn new skills and play a game. You do not need to be a cricket expert to be involved!
Playing at home
All children are encouraged to continue playing outside of the Dynamos sessions. If your children would like to continue to develop their skills at home then there will be a host of skills, challenges and activities within the Dynamos Cricket app that will be available to download for free.
Your child’s safety
The Dynamos Cricket programme is an initiative designed by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB). The ECB requires all centres to undergo safeguarding, risk and insurance assessments before they are accredited. Alongside this, all Dynamos Cricket activators have received training and are fully checked through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
Dynamos uses soft balls and light wooden bats that allow children to play the game while keeping them safe. Activators have a pack of equipment to support the children when they are learning how to catch, bowl and bat.
