Registrations open for All Stars Cricket and Dynamos Cricket

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has today opened registrations for its two participation programmes – All Stars Cricket and Dynamos Cricket – and children aged 5 to 11 can sign now sign up.

With outdoor cricket returning on 29 March, kids finally have the much-needed opportunity to get outside, get active, make friends and – importantly – enjoy the summer! All Stars Cricket and Dynamos Cricket offer the perfect opportunity to do just that.

All Stars Cricket is an eight-week programme suited for boys and girls aged five to eight, while Dynamos Cricket is designed for children aged 8 to 11 and runs for a minimum of six weeks, with sessions between 60 and 90 minutes.

All Stars Cricket is an activity-packed programme, providing a fantastic first experience of the game. The programme helps children develop nine out of ten fundamental movement skills, while inspiring them to a lifelong love for sport and cricket.

Dynamos Cricket is a new programme for 8–11-year-olds designed to encourage boys and girls to have fun, make friends and fall in love with cricket.

Launched last year but postponed due to the pandemic, Dynamos Cricket provides a pathway for children graduating from the All Stars Cricket but is also perfect for those who are totally new to the game.

The two programmes come with many benefits:

  • Participants who sign up to All Stars Cricket will receive a participant pack including backpack, cricket bat, ball, personalised shirt with name and are entitled to a free Durham Cricket Junior Membership – an initiative driven by Durham Cricket.
  • Participants who sign up to Dynamos Cricket will receive a free New Balance personalised t-shirt with name and number, exclusive access to Topps Cricket Attax cards and access to the Dynamos Cricket app which contains loads of exclusive content. The programme will run alongside The Hundred, with participants getting priority access to tickets, free gifts and money-can’t-buy experiences.

All Stars Cricket will run in over 60 centres across Durham, with Dynamos available in 21 local clubs across the county.

ECB Director of Participation and Growth, Nick Pryde said: “We are delighted that the Government’s roadmap allows for our kids participation programmes – Dynamos and All Stars Cricket – to safely take place outdoors. After the past year, it’s so important that kids get active, socialise, learn new skills, have fun and make friends.

“Both these programmes have been designed with kids at the heart. We listened to what they wanted from their activities and built programmes that are fun and beneficial. Both programmes are designed to be gender neutral and inclusive of children of all experiences and abilities, so all kids can be inspired to play, engage and watch cricket.”
