Once again we have enlisted the skills of a female PE Teacher and will be offering the option of Girls Multi-Sports, including activities such as dance, tennis, rounders and basic cheerleading.

Returning for its 10th Year Darwen Cricket Club's Sports Camp takes place from Monday, August 18 to Friday August 22. The emphasis is on fun and enjoyment, small coach-to-child ratios and great facilities and equipment. Boys and girls aged between 5 and 15 are welcome.

Head Coaches Andrew Mercer and Chris Riley are both experienced teachers and ECB cricket coaches and FA qualified football coaches. Both have played 1st XI cricket for over 10 years, they are CRB checked, First Aid trained and have vast experience of working with children both in a school and club environment.
