Adventure and Team Bonding for Kent’s Cricketing Girls

For the sixth year running, as part of their early season preparation, the Kent Under 11 Girls Cricket 20 player squad took time out from their usual cricket training to enjoy a twenty-four hour stay at Kent County Council’s Residential Centre at Swattenden, near Cranbrook.

David Sear, squad coach, said ‘Swattenden is the perfect place to find out how the girls would get on with one another away from the cricket field, and to see leadership qualities among the potential captains’.

The squad was divided into four teams – Reds, Blues, Greens and Yellows – and the challenge this year was to pack more competitive games and tasks into the 24 hours than ever before. The girls participated in various team building exercises, including navigating an assault course, raft building and team races.

David Sear said, ‘once again, the concept of a team bonding day proved to be an enormous success, but it was a lot of fun, too. Almost everything we did could be related back to cricket. I was most impressed with the way the girls used their different abilities to their team’s advantage, and also by the way they encouraged each other when faced with a difficult task. Also pleasing was the competitive spirit shown throughout.’

Thank so much to Gary our Swattenden leader and Liv Price and Craig Bolton for their assistance on the day.
