Welcome to Whitmore Junior Academy, where we open our doors to enthusiastic young cricketers, both boys and girls, from their very first Reception year right through to the U19 category. Here, we're committed to providing a rich and comprehensive training and match experience, designed to nurture talent at every step of their journey.

At the heart of our academy are 11 dynamic teams that span the age groups of U8, U10, U12, U13, U14, U16, and U19. These teams represent the academy in various formats, from thrilling matches to high-stakes competitive leagues, county, and even national cup competitions. However, Whitmore Junior Academy is more than just about the thrill of the match day. We place a significant emphasis on training – it's here, on the practice grounds, where the magic really happens. Our players hone their skills, tap into their potential, and weave together memories that will last them a lifetime, all under the watchful eyes of our expert coaching staff.

Our summer Junior Academy Training sessions are a highlight of our programme, taking place on the lush fields of Whitmore CC every Friday evening starting at 6 pm. As the seasons turn and winter draws in, our commitment to development doesn't waver. From January to March, Friday evenings are dedicated to winter training sessions, ensuring that our players remain sharp, engaged, and ready for the challenges ahead.

Leading our exceptional coaching team is Charles Harrison, an ECB Level 3 coach whose expertise and passion for the game have been instrumental in shaping the future of countless young cricketers. Supporting him is a squad of dedicated volunteer coaches, all of whom are ECB Level 1 and 2 certified. This team brings together a wealth of experience and a shared love for cricket, working tirelessly to create an environment where young talents flourish.

Joining Whitmore is more than just signing up for a cricket team; it's becoming part of a community that celebrates every catch, every run, and every victory together. It's where friendships are formed, skills are sharpened, and the future stars of cricket begin their journey.

We invite you to be a part of this exciting journey at Whitmore Junior Academy. Whether you're taking your first steps with a bat, dreaming of bowling that perfect over, or looking to elevate your game to the next level, there's a place for you here. Together, let's play, learn, and grow in the great game of cricket.
