'Sloggerz' Holiday Camps
'Sloggerz' cricket camps are a joint initiative between Wiltshire Council and Wiltshire Cricket and are holiday camps aimed at children, boys and girls, between the ages of 8 and 14. At these camps, experienced coaches will lead soft ball coaching sessions for young people of all experience and ability - no prior experience is required, just a love of the game and an interest in getting involved! The camps costs £45 per person and places are allocated on a first come first served basis.
After 3 succesful years of running Sloggerz Camps we’re back and offering you more opportunities to get involved! Why not come along to our ‘Sloggerz’ cricket camps this summer and work on your skills under the guidance of highly qualified and experienced coaches, led by Wiltshire Cricket’s community coach Josh Boulton.
Focusing on fun games, individual skill development and soft ball matches, the camps will provide male and female participants with the chance to take part in the game regardless of prior experience.
We have increased the number of Sloggerz camps in 2017 to give more opportunities to take part in cricket during the Easter and Summer Holidays.
