Falcons School for Girls Teams Up with Leading Cricket Clubs
Falcons School for Girls has partnered with Roehampton and Fulham Cricket Clubs to provide pupils with best-in-class girls cricket training. Students from Years 3 to 6 at the Putney-based school have already enjoyed a series of training sessions, which were led by industry professionals from the two London clubs.
The sessions gave the girls the valuable opportunity to build upon and put their existing skills to the test, while also learning new techniques. The coaches thought the girls displayed huge potential and hope to see some more of them at future training sessions at the clubs.
The girls thoroughly enjoyed the sessions, with Year 6 pupil Maelys commenting: “I really enjoyed cricket training. It was super fun and the coaches were passionate about teaching us cricket. The aim of the session was to learn new batting techniques such as front and back drive and develop bowling skills”.
Dash, a Year 5 pupil added, “We did lots of running, team work games and the group had lots of team spirit. The aim of the session was to focus on running fast, throwing and catching a ball well, and to think quickly when fielding”
PE and Games Lead for Falcons School for Girls, Amber Walters commented, “We’re grateful to Roehampton and Fulham Cricket Clubs for providing our girls with a taster of cricket. It’s been fantastic to see the girls gain expert knowledge and understanding of the sport, which is new to most of them. It’s never been more important than it is now for pupils to have the opportunity to enjoy sport together in the fresh air, so it’s no wonder the response was so positive!”
