Wolvercote Cricket Club is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all its members.

Wolvercote Cricket Cub believes that it is important that members, coaches, administrators and parents, carers or guardians associated with the club should, at all times, show respect and understanding for the safety and welfare of others.

Therefore, members are encouraged to be open at all times and to share any concerns or complaints that they may have about any aspect of the club with Nick Pinhol- Director of Youth Cricket.

As a member of Wolvercote Cricket Club you are expected to abide by the following junior code of conduct:

All members must play within the rules and respect officials and their decisions.

All members must respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

Members should keep to agreed timings for training and competitions or inform their coach or team manager if they are going to be late.

Members must wear suitable kit – Cricket whites– for training and match sessions, as agreed with the coach/team manager.

Members must pay any fees for training or events promptly.

Junior members are not allowed to smoke on club premises or whilst representing the club at competitions.

Junior members are not allowed to consume alcohol or drugs of any kind on the club premises or whilst representing the club.

We welcome both boys and girls of all abilities. At Wolvercote, our youth players seek to learn and develop skills that relate to all aspects of cricket which thus enables them to represent the club in junior league and cup matches throughout the summer.  Our stronger players are identified by our coaches, and then nominated to attend the OCB Cricket trials at the end of the season.

We have a constantly growing junior section, to which we currently enter junior cricket teams for U13 (for the ages of 10-13) and U15 (14-15). Many of our junior coaches represent the club at adult level, so understand how important high quality coaching is, and how they can look to pass their love of cricket to the next generation of Wolvercote cricketers.

Our older youth players also get the chance to play adult league cricket on Saturdays as well as experiencing ‘Adult cricket’ for the first time in our midweek and friendly teams.

The fundamental basis and principles of all our coaching is for the purpose of creating a fun and enjoyable environment that enables our cricketers to develop as cricketers, as a team and as an individual.

We are always looking for help running teams and organizing matches so if you wish to help please contact us.

At Wolvercote we are committed to continuously increase standards of best practice which can be
seen in the form of coaching. The fundamental basis and principles of all our coaching is for the

player Samad Fallah as a coaching consultant, this upcoming season we have Ed Ellis current

can be seen with our National Chance to Shine Satellite Club of The Year Award, we as a
youth set up we are committed to creating opportunities for kids to play cricket. We seek to
help to get as many kids as possible playing cricket within the ring road by working with and
developing partnerships and links with local primary and secondary schools, chance to shine
and the Oxfordshire cricket board.
