Oxford Cricket Club are pleased to announce their youth training programme for the summer of 2016.
2016 sees the club move to a new home at Jordan Hill Sports Ground, OX2 8EF. We have an established youth section with several ECB qualified Level 2 (male & female, plus two Level 3 coaches. We also give youth players aged 14 plus opportunity to play senior men’s Cherwell League, Midlands Women League, or OCB Women’s Mid-Week League cricket – we aim to have a clear pathway to senior cricket, which itself allows for development through to an extremely high standard.
Our youth programme for 2016 has been predominantly moved to Friday nights – with training sessions for U9, U11 and U13 age groups taking place; we provide cricket from the age of seven. Training for the U15 and U17 age groups takes place concurrently with senior training.
Youth membership for the year is £60. This includes social membership for parents; any siblings are £30 and a discount is available for parents who are full members of the club. New members are more than welcome to come to one or two sessions before committing. We administer our membership through ClubPay – allowing our members to pay with a debit or credit card. Should this cause any issues then please get in touch.
We require you to fill out the following form before your child can begin their first with us – https://oxfordcricketclub.files.wordpress.com/2015/07/occ-youth-membership-form-2016.docx – if you could come to your first session with this filled out that would save us a lot of time.
The first training session of the summer begins at 6pm on Friday 6th May – we will be there for registration from 5.45pm. We envisage that the session will continue until around 7pm given the light conditions currently.
We ask that a parent or guardian stays for the duration of all sessions for children aged 8 or under. Boys above the age of 10 will be using a hard ball and require a protective box for when they are batting.
In addition to providing youth coaching and matches, we also run summer holiday coaching camps during July and August, details of which are being finalised as we speak.
