Oxford CC Youth Cricket

Welcome to the Youth Section of Oxford Cricket Club. Youth cricket is the future of our club and the youth section aims to give young people a chance to play cricket and, whatever their level, help them to have fun, make friends and achieve their potential.

We cater for boys and girls of all abilities and ages, from All Stars and Dynamos basic for the U8’s to participation in the senior Men’s and Women’s teams. We have teams competing in local Oxfordshire Cricket Board Youth competitions at U9, U11, U13, U15 and U17 age groups. So, whatever your age and ability, we have some cricket for you.

 

Due to COVID – 19, All forms of cricket practice and matches have been postponed until further notice, following the government and England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) guidance. Although we are hoping to have some cricket in 2020 when the lockdown/social distancing is lifted.

Please follow us on our Instagram and Twitter to stay in touch with updates, and get in touch if you would like to join!

U9s – U13s train on Friday evenings, with matches played on different days of week for different age groups.

U15’s will train with Senior Men on Thursday evenings from 18:00.

Important dates:

  • TBC – Parents vs Kids match/evening

How Do We Get Started?

We don’t operate a waiting list so the simple answer is to just come along to one of our sessions.

For ages 5-8, we are proud to be a centre for All Stars Cricket, please see our dedicated page for more details!

Facilities and Training

All outdoor youth training sessions will take place at OUP Sports Ground, Jordan Hill in North Oxford (OX2 8EF).

  • We have specialist male and female coaches to provide training for all abilities.
  • All our training/coaching sessions are lead by ECB qualified coaches who hold current First Aid and Child Protection certificates and are members of the ECB Coaches Association.
  • As a Clubmark accredited club, we ensure all our volunteers involved in youth cricket – coaches, team managers, umpires, scorers and helpers – are CRB checked.

Training Information

We ask that a parent/guardian for all young cricketers under the age of 8 remain at training sessions for the full duration of the session.

Please ensure that all boys playing in the U10 age group and above bring a protective box to training. We can provide all other protective equipment but without a box they will not be able to bat in the nets with a hard ball.

In case of bad weather, we will send updates by email, and via Twitter
