OWCC welcomes children of all abilities to the club. The club provides opportunities for young people between the ages of 6 years and 16 years to receive coaching and play cricket in both the NEC League and in Cup Competitions. All coaching is by qualified ECB coaches who are trained and have been screened for their suitability for working with young people.
The club has achieved Sport England's Clubmark, which is awarded to clubs by Surrey Cricket Board when the club is able to demonstrate that it meets the Surrey Cricket Board’s criteria as to playing programme; child protection; sports equity and ethics and club management. Clubmark 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 the sport. We are also a focus club in the Croydon area.

We welcome parents to all training and matches and value your support.

Training sessions are arranged for each year group individually and the day and timings will be advised by the age group manager.

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 contact the relevant age group manager or coach on the number provided on the attached sheet and let them know.

The club fees include club membership and summer coaching during the NEC season. Additional coaching is provided in the winter and we hope to arrange a weeks’ summer camp in August, these are charged separately. The club supplies shirts at between £15-£20; these are to be worn when representing the club.

For the safety of your child it is important that the club is informed of any medical condition or allergies that may be relevant should your child fall ill or be involved in an accident at the club.
If you would like to talk to someone at the club about this information or your child’s involvement with the club, please contact the OWCC Colts on the following e-mail address colts@owcc.org.
