What we offer

COACHING

We offer year round cricket coaching for boys and girls from Reception age upwards.  As children mature in their teens, there is also the opportunity to train with and play in NLCC Senior and Academy teams. The club has a vibrant and successful junior section and we welcome newcomers.

COACHES

Our coaches are all qualified and DBS checked and many have had years of experience of teaching children the game of cricket.

FREE TASTER SESSIONS

We are always keen to hear from potential new players, and so there are opportunities throughout the year for children new to the game, to come and try cricket with us – free – to see if they like it.  Contact Becky beckyissitt1@gmail.com to find out about the next available taster session.

VENUE

We are situated in an oasis of green in Crouch End - one of the most beautiful locations in London cricket.  As well as the cricket, we have lots of events to ensure we enjoy the club's setting.

Matches and Player Selection 

Matches take place against other clubs from Year 3 upwards usually 6.00-8.30pm on a week night both at home and away. Team selections are made via the club website so it is essential that all players are registered.  New members please look out for an email inviting you to reset a password (within 24 hours of receipt).  You will then gain access to the members’ section of the site to provide your child’s availability details and your manager will be able to send you selection emails automatically.


What to bring to training/matches

Any cricket equipment you bring to the club, such as bats, helmets etc should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Players should bring water.

What to wear

Whites – must be worn for matches (unless, by exception, particular competition rules require otherwise). North London CC branded items are available for purchase.  Our kit is available at our online store (with home delivery) from https://www.gncricketshop.co.uk/NorthLondonCC/_CSmain.aspx

For training – special training wear available from the online store or come in any appropriate sportswear.

Hair – long hair should be tied back (important for safety)

Cap – strongly recommended – NLCC cap available at the club.

Protection – Helmet, gloves, pads (and a cricket box for boys) are compulsory when playing hard ball cricket.  One place to buy these where you can try on different brands and be fitted for a bat is Morrants E18 1BY.  Lord’s also has a shop.

 

One-to-one Coaching

Every summer there are opportunities for individual coaching with our club coaches. Please email Martin martinissitt7@gmail.com to arrange. 

 

NLCC  Holiday Cricket Camps  

The camp is open to boys and girls aged 6-13 yrs.  All applications by email to Matthew at  nlcccricketcamps@gmail.com

EASTER CAMP : 4th to 8th and 11th to 15th April  

The camp is open to girls and boys from age 6-13 years.

 

ECB  Coaching programmes – All Stars and Dynamos

NLCC is a centre for these programmes and they comprise eight hours of coaching on Saturday mornings during the summer season.  All Stars is for children 5-8 yrs and Dynamos 8-11 yrs.  This is totally separate to the weekly club coaching above, but NLCC members will be entitled to a discount on the All Stars and Dynamos programmes if they are interested in this extra opportunity.  For more information contact Becky beckyissitt1@gmail.com.

 

COVID IMPACT

Everyone is very much looking forward to a full cricket season in 2022, and a return to “normal”. Members will, however, appreciate that NLCC’s activities will  remain subject to any applicable governmental or ECB rules/guidance from time to time.  

 

WINTER SEASON - various times and indoor locations

Contact Becky Issitt beckyissitt1@gmail.com for current schedule

MIDDLESEX TRIALS

We provide players with the chance to try for Borough and County selection and our girls in particular have had notable success at Middlesex.
