Junior Club Rules and Code of conduct

Finchampstead Cricket Club is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the well-being of all its junior players. The club believes that it is important that all junior players, coaches, administrators and parents associated with the club should, at all times, show respect, be 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 either your team manager or Karen Jackson our Child Welfare Officer.

As a member of Finchampstead Cricket Club you are reminded that you are representing the club and are expected to behave in an appropriate manner at all times. You are expected to abide by the following junior club rules:

  • All juniors must play within the rules and respect officials and their decisions. Under no circumstances, should juniors show dissent or dispute decisions given by umpires or team officials
  • All juniors must respect opponents
  • Juniors should keep to agreed timings for training and competitions and must inform their team manager if they are going to be late. For coaching sessions, this is no later than 10 minutes before the session is due to start, and for matches, no later than 30 minutes before the scheduled start time
  • Juniors must wear suitable kit for training and match sessions, as specified by the ECB guidelines and as agreed with the coach/team manager. As it is compulsory for all boys to wear a cricket box when batting or close fielding, it is advisable to provide your own and bring it to every coaching session and to every match.  Each team will have their own kit-bag and can provide all other protective equipment
  • Jewellery, of any description, must not be worn for matches or training sessions, both for personal safety and that of other players. If ear-studs cannot be removed, they must be covered with an appropriate dressing before arriving at the ground
  • Juniors are not allowed to smoke on club premises or whilst representing the club at competitions
  • Juniors are not allowed to consume alcohol or drugs of any kind on the club premises or whilst representing the club
