Dear Cricket Enthusiast,
Thanks for visiting our Youth Cricket page. We adults have been playing cricket in the pockets of Montgomery, Howard and Prince George’s county for past 20 years. Our kids always followed us to the cricket ground with their bat and ball as well. Sometime in 2013 we thought of creating our own youth teams as well and as a result we introduced our first team Maryland Thunder. And yes as the team name suggests, thundered we did almost winning Maryland Youth Cricket League finals in June 2014. Our team (averaging about 11 years age) almost beat 15 years old tall kids in final.
The Maryland Thunder team has a pool of about 20 players and growing. Many more are joining as the word spreads. The youngest ones are about 8 years old and oldest being 14. This is a good mix of kids with few having prior cricket knowledge whereas others are getting their feet wet.
Once we get 30+ children we are thinking of splitting our group into 2 teams – One based in Spencerville / Burtonsville area, and another based in Columbia / Ellicott City area.
Normally we practice every Sunday @ 4 pm and during tournament season we practice on week days Wednesday @ 06pm as well.
Interested in trying out? Register to join team MARYLAND THUNDER.
