Junior Season

Welcome to the 2021/22 season at Ormond Cricket Club. As a community club our philosophy is simple, junior cricket is all about participation, enjoyment and skill development.
We have opened up registrations but are proceeding with a bit of a "fingers crossed" attitude given the uncertainty around COVID-19..

Junior Programme

The Ormond Cricket Club has a full scale junior program that caters for children from the age of 5.

We take great pride in our junior development programme that starts with the Woolworths Junior Blasters Programme (boys and girls aged 5 to 7) then progresses through to the Master Blasters Programme (boys and girls aged 7 and 8) and then into our under age teams (under 12 to under 16). We offer local boys and girls the development programs, coaching, facilities and support to nurture their cricketing talent and aspirations. Run exclusively by volunteers, the juniors at Ormond Cricket Club has a long history and has built a reputation for community and team spirit, integrity and on-field success.  In season 2020/21, 7 of our 8 junior teams who could play finals did and we were Premiers in the Under 14A Grade and Under 16A Grade. Our Under 12 A Grade team were runners up.

Season Launch 2021-22 - TBA

In the 2020/21 season we fielded 12 junior teams in the under 12, 14 and 16 sections in the South East Cricket Association (SECA). Our under 14A Grade and Under 16A Grade teams both won the premiership and our Under 12A Grade team were runners up. We also had a large number of players represent SECA in their representative teams – an incredible achievement and further evidence of our acclaimed junior program.

Our juniors compete in the north division of SECA which means we play teams from South Melbourne through to Moorabbin and Cheltenham on green synthetic wickets. Our junior home grounds are in the City of Glen Eira at East Caulfield (opposite Monash University), E E Gunn Reserve in Ormond and at Caulfield Park on Balaclava Road in Caulfield.

As a sub-district cricket club we also field an Under 15 representative team in the J G Craig competition (formerly R M Hatch Competition) on turf wickets. Selection trials for this competition are held in the October/November period each year and the games are in the first two weeks of January. All 32 sub-district teams play in this competition and we were Premiers in 2018, 2019 and 2021.

We are looking for more on-field success again this season and the club enforces a ‘fair play’ participation policy in the juniors that basically guarantees every player bats and bowls in every match in the U12 grades and lower grades in the Under 14 and 16's. Player enjoyment and development are an integral part of our junior mission statement and in 2021/22 we anticipate having at least six Under 12 teams plus two teams in both the U14s and U16s. We are always looking to grow our junior ranks with new players and if you are interested in joining the club simply contact our junior co-ordinator via email juniorcoordinator@ormondcc.com.au
