Brilliant news for our Stand junior players as the ECB announced this week the launch of a free app. The new Dynamos Cricket app provides lots of ways to stay active, learn new skills and keep the whole family entertained and engaged with each other during this difficult time.
With our facilities currently closed we would encourage downloading this app, even if it’s to keep active and used to the cricket ball.
Nick Pryde, ECB Director of Participation and Growth said: “Sport is clearly providing families with some much-needed relief during lockdown.
“As restrictions begin to ease, we hope the app will help kids to have fun whilst picking up some cricket skills.
“We continue to follow government advice and we are doing our utmost to find a way to run the Dynamos Cricket programme as soon as it is safe to do so.”
Former England cricketer Ian Bell has been using the app to keep active with his kids during lockdown.
“We’ve tried to be as active as possible with our kids during this period. The Dynamos app is a great way for us to keep active as a family and we’ve been having a lot of fun using it.”
Speaking about the app he said: “We’ve tried to be as active as possible with our kids during this period. It has been a challenge but spending quality time with them has been one of the real bright spots.
“The Dynamos app is a great way for us to keep active as a family and we’ve been having a lot of fun using it.”
Kids can learn lots of new skills using the new Dynamos app including batting, bowling and fielding. Skills videos and interactive quizzes provide ways to get active and keep the family entertained.
The app is part of the wider Dynamos Cricket programme that launched earlier this year for kids aged 8-11. The eight-week programme is aimed at those new to the game or those graduating from All Stars Cricket.
You can download the new Dynamos Cricket app for free on iOS and Android.
