Welcome to Junior Cricket at Wooburn Narkovians
Wooburn Narkovians welcomes young players of all ages, from reception through to U17. We aim to provide quality coaching in a safe, stimulating and fun environment where young players of all abilities can develop a love of the great game of cricket, improve their skills and test themselves in matches against other local clubs.
The junior section is a vital part of this cricket club, and there is a direct route from the juniors into senior teams for those players who want to take it. Over the years, many players have made this progression and a large proportion of the current 1st and 2nd XI players have come up through the junior teams. We want this to continue, our juniors are very much the future of this cricket club.
New Members Welcome
The junior section offers mini cricket membership for reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children with coaching on Friday evenings from early May through to late July. For children aged 7 and older coaching is on Sunday mornings so if your child is looking for a club to join or fancies a change, please contact us through this website, or come along to one of the coaching sessions. We will be delighted to see you. For any existing members, if you have any friends who might be interested, please bring them along.
Coaching and Practice with ECB Qualified Coaches
Outdoor coaching sessions for the U7's and older are held at Wooburn Park on Sunday mornings and will recommence on Sunday 23rd April 2017, continuing through to September. These are run by the club's growing number of ECB qualified coaches. The Sunday sessions are from 10.00am to 12 noon and are split by age group/ability.
Teams, Matches and Competition in 2017
For 2017 we have entered teams in the Bucks League competitions at U9 (soft ball), U12, U13, U14 and U17 age groups. We also plan to arrange a few friendlies for our ever expanding kwik cricket section to accommodate the younger children, including our own Kwik Cricket Tournament in July. All our young players will have the opportunity to play in matches.
ECB Clubmark - A Commitment to Youth Development
To demonstrate Wooburn Narkovians' commitment to youth development, the club achieved the ECB Clubmark accreditation in August 2011. The various Child Protection and Safeguarding policies have been posted on the Child Welfare page. More information on this will be posted on the website in due course.
