Junior Season 2019

On behalf of Clifton Alliance Cricket Club I would like to welcome you and your child to the club and provide you with some information about the cricket activities we offer.

Clifton Alliance Cricket Club provides opportunities for young people between the ages of 5 and 19 to receive coaching and competition in the York & District Junior Cricket Association. All coaching is provided by qualified coaches who are trained and have been screened for their suitability for working with young people.

The club is ECB Clubmark accredited. ECB Clubmark is the ECB’s club accreditation scheme for cricket clubs with junior sections. Clubs are required to meet minimum standards across four key areas; Duty of Care and Safeguarding Children; the Cricket Programme the club offers, Knowing your club and its Community – One Game and Club Management. Achieving ECB Clubmark accreditation is an acknowledgement that we take these issues seriously and that we are striving to provide a high quality and welcoming environment for young participants in cricket.

We welcome parents and carers or guardians to all training and competitions and value your support. A copy of the club’s Code of Conduct for Members and Guests is available on this site. The Code is in place to ensure a safe and appropriate environment for all junior cricketers and club members, including your child. Anyone entering club premises, attending any training sessions, matches or competitions is required to abide by the provisions of the Code of Conduct. Anyone who breaches the provisions of the Code or who does not agree to be bound by it may be prevented from entering club premises as a result.

Below is some information about training times and dates, and details regarding travel arrangements, kit and membership.

Training sessions for All Stars Cricket (ages 5-8), Under 9’s, 11s, 13’s will take place on Fridays. All Stars Cricket (ages 5-8) will start at 5:30pm to 6:15pm.

Arrangements should be made for your child to travel to and from training sessions and matches. We appreciate it if children can arrive promptly and are collected promptly at the end of the session, if they are not making their own way home. If you are going to be late picking your child up, please let the relevant age group coach know or alternatively for games the relevant team manager.
