Highgate is a friendly and inclusive club offering cricket coaching for children from Year 1 upwards. We enter the Middlesex Development League (MDL) for colts aged 15 and upwards. We also run ECB-sponsored and approved All Stars Cricket training sessions for 5-8 year olds. All colts are encouraged to play for our senior sides should they wish. Highgate Cricket Club's aim is to provide junior cricketers with a lifelong love of the game.
We take care to ensure that:
- All our coaches are ECB-qualified and DBS-checked (as are our support staff)
- A First Aider is always available at the club and away games
- All coaches/staff are aware of their Safeguarding roles and responsibilities. This ensures a safe and inclusive place for children to have fun and develop their cricket. See our our Policies & Safeguarding pages for more details.

We always want to hear from potential new players. Please contact us to find details of the next taster sessions.
