COVID-19 UPDATE – 30th December 2020

Little Wickets is On Hold Until Week Commencing 18th January 2021 at the Earliest

Term Time Sessions  – Tier 4 Class Update

Following the announcement on 30th December 2020 that all of our 1st & 2nd Innings’ venues are now in Tier 4 we have sadly come to the conclusion that we should temporarily suspend our weekly sessions for at least 2 weeks until the Guidance is clearer (especially from Sport England & The ECB). Under the current Public Health legislation we can legally carry on (especially with the COVID-mitigation measures we have in place) but with the well-being of all involved as our top priority and a great deal of uncertainty surrounding the return of children to school & regular indoor sport out of school/nursery settings this feels the right thing to do. We will be watching the ever-shifting guidance & legislation carefully and sincerely hope that the school & tier review due on 16th January will mean the sessions can return week commencing Monday 18th January, at the earliest.  We will of course keep everyone up to date via this website & social media and our current booked customers via email. Credits or Refunds for current will be processed accordingly. Bookings are still being taken from week commencing Monday 18th January but we recomend that payments are not made until the picture for the end of January and beyond is clearer.
We will of course keep our booked customers updated on our plans via email (credit or refunds will be given accordingly). In the meantime we would like to thank the entire Little Wickets Family for their understanding and patience.
Although the start dates have now chagned our full planned Spring 21 Term Table can be found here Little Wickets Spring 2 Timetable

Without compromising on the Fun we continue to implement a number of COVID-19 Mitigation Measures at our regular 1st & Innings sessions (when they are running)  to ensure the safety of the team, all our Families and the local commnity. Please see a summary of the measures we ask all our 1st & 2nd Innings Little Wickets’ Families to follow in our  Little Wickets’ COVID ‘New Normal’ Protocols as well as the  venue specific measures in place.  Little Wickets full COVID-19 Mitigation Risk Assessment is available on request via email from  chloe@littlewickets.com

Prices

All sessions are currently payable in advance for a half. Joining mid-term is dependent on availability.

All Sessions will be bookable as a block for the first half of the Autumn Term @£12 per session to reflect the lowered maximum class size and our increased costs. Unfortunately we are not in a position to offer sibling discounts this half term. The Spring 21 per session rates will be reviewed mid December.

Maximum Group Sizes are under constant review  and we will return to a lower standard per session rate (£8 per session) & normal maximum group size just as soon as is viable under prevailing guidance. We are anticipating further guidance on group numbers for January 2021. However we do not anticipate being able to return to the pre-COVID group numbers until at least Summer 2021.

The cost of the After School clubs are dependent on which school the club is at. If your school is not listed in the booking section below please email info@littlewickets.com for further information.

Newcomer’s Guarantee

In order to maintain our strict low ratios of kids to coaches, we are unfortunately unable to offer free taster sessions. However, if after 2 weeks it isn’t working out for any reason, we will refund the unused prepaid sessions on the basis that the used sessions were at the standard per session rate.
