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 age groups, from All Stars and basic skills for the U8’s to participation in the senior Men’s and Women’s teams at the U15-U17 level. 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.

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 of cricketer. 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, so that parents can be confident that youngsters are coached and play cricket in a safe environment.
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. Youth boxes can be bought cheaply at most sport shops.
In case of bad weather, we will send updates by email, and via twitter (@OxCC_youth)
