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 basic for the U8’s to participation in the senior Men’s and Women’s teams. This season we will be running 7 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.
Our first outdoor session will be on Friday 26th April 2019, taking place at Jordan Hill for U9s – U13s!
Sessions will be on Friday evenings from 18:15 for all juniors!*
*All Stars will begin on the 10th of May at 18:00.
U15’s are to train with Senior Men on Thursday evenings from 18:00.

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.
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.
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 (@Oxcricketclub)
