Little Cricket

Little Cricket is a fun NEW cricket activity class for girls and boys aged 2-4, but it’s more than just bats and balls!

Cricket develops nine of the ten Fundamental Movement Skills, more than any other sport, and Little Cricket classes cover all nine. They are throwing, catching, running, jumping, batting, bowling, balance, agility and coordination.

When a child is confident and competent in the Fundamental Movement Skills they can more easily develop other sport specific and complex movement skills that allow them to enjoy broader sports and physical activities as they grow.

Each Little Cricket session focuses on a different Fundamental Movement Skill, using a combination of fun games and cricket activities to engage and teach the children.

Each session lasts for 45 minutes and is delivered by trained coaches to ensure that every child gets the most that they can out of every class.

Our weekly classes run in York on:
Mondays at St Andrews Church Hall, Bishopthorpe:
12.45 – 1.30pm: Maxi (3-4 year olds)
1.45 – 2.30pm: Minis (2-3 year olds)

Thursdays at Piglets Adventure Farm:
10.15 – 11am for Maxis (3-4 year olds)
11.15 – noon for Minis (2-3 year olds)

Fridays at The Poppleton Centre
11.10 – 11.55pm: Minis (2-3 year olds)

We look forward to seeing you at a class soon!

Swimming with Linzi

Swimming with Linzi is all about having fun in a safe environment, from gaining water confidence to great stroke technique.

I offer baby, toddler and Pre-school lessons, 4 weeks – 4 years of age at Carr Junior School in Acomb, York on Monday, Thursday and Friday mornings. It is a small pool and warm at 31 degrees, perfect for little ones!

I also run classes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for children 2 -10 years at Robert Wilkinson School, Strensall, York, from 3.30-6.30 pm.

When children are confident enough, they can go in by themselves without their primary caregiver. This is a natural progression and one where there’s no age limit. The important thing here is, it’s when the child is ready.

Classes are fun based and relaxed with only 7 children in each class. With the whole pool to ourselves, children really enjoy their lessons and thrive learning to swim. I get to know all the children individually and adapt my teaching accordingly. There is only 1 class running at a time so little distraction from other swimmers.

With over 10 years teaching experience, including my own 3 children, I am fully qualified STA Swimming Instructor, STA baby and pre-school teacher, RLSS lifesaving and recently completed Level 3 Diploma in Aquatic Teaching for Baby and Pre-school. Do check out my recommendations on Facebook!
