Introductory Letter to Parents/Carers and Guardians 2024

ORMSKIRK CRICKET CLUB

Welcome: On behalf of Ormskirk Cricket Club we would like to welcome your child to the club and provide you with some information about the cricket activities we offer.  Ormskirk Cricket Club provides opportunities for young people between the ages of 4 and 18 to receive coaching and compete in the Liverpool & District Cricket League. 

Clubmark: We are a Clubmark club and adhere to the ‘Safe Hands’ Policy for Safeguarding Children in Cricket. All of the adults who work at the Club and meet the necessary criteria have been vetted by the ECB. This includes the enhanced DBS and ‘Barred List’ check (formerly known as CRB checks).

Training: We welcome parents and carers or guardians to all training and competitions and value your support. Below is some information about training times and dates, and details regarding travel arrangements and membership. If you have any questions about training please approach the coach in the first instance BUT please do not do so during training as this may distract the coach when he/she needs to be supervising.

Training sessions – all of which take place at Brook Lane – are as follows:

  • All Stars: Fridays from 10th May for 10 weeks

  • Under 9s: Fridays from 19th April to 12th July

PLEASE TAKE CARE when driving/parking near the club at all times. Children do not always concentrate as they should.

Social Membership:

The Club is dependent on the support of its members and in recent years significant and costly improvements have been made..

Forms are available at Registration and online. 

Travel: It is the responsibility of parents/carers to make arrangements for travel to and from training sessions and matches. If you are going to be late picking your child up from a match, please contact the team manager to let him/her know.
