YOUNG cricketers will be given the opportunity to develop their skills when Big Bash League team Melbourne Renegades host  a school holiday program in Bendigo.

The program, which targets boys and girls aged seven to 12, includes four sessions at Spring Gully Cricket Club.

They are Friday, January 12 and Friday, January 19, both 5.30pm-7pm, and Sunday January 28 and Sunday, February 4, both 9.30am to 11am.

Renegades cricket development officer Jacob DeAraugo said the program offered a great opportunity for young boys and girls to keep active and have a heap of fun during the holidays.

 “January can be a bit of a dead time for junior cricket as many junior competitions and programs shut down as it is a busy time of year, but for those children who might be loving the Big Bash and wanting to keep active or give cricket a go, this holiday program is the perfect for them,” he said.
