Youth Cricket

An exciting competition for
High School Students

As players transition from Primary School to High School, they will transition from Junior Cricket to Youth Cricket. Weedons Cricket Club has partnered with Rolleston College* to create teams who compete in the CCCA Mid-Canterbury Year 9 & Year 10 Super League.

Can I get a family discount?

We have introduced a 15% discount on subs for families that have more than one child registered to play in the Weedons Rolleston Junior Cricket Club.

Regrettably, this discount will not work across the three clubs – it will only work for siblings registered within the same club.

When you complete the registration form, there will be an option to add another child – please use this option as this will combine the subs for the players and calculate the discount once you have completed this process.

Credit Card payments can be made during the registration process.  Note that a merchant fee will be added to the amount due.

Youth Cricket Code of Conduct

Cricket is a game that owes much of its unique appeal to the fact that it is expected to be played not only within its Laws, but also within the Spirit of the Game. Any action, that is seen to abuse this spirit, causes injury to the game itself. The major responsibility for ensuring the spirit of fair play rests with the players, captains, coaches, managers and supporters of all teams involved.

We expects all Players, Captains, Coaches, Managers and Supporters at all levels within our club to uphold the following values:

  1. Fun is the objective;
  2. Batsmen walk if caught;
  3. Fielders are quiet when batsmen are facing;
  4. Teams are prepared to play on time;
  5. Fielding teams maintain a fast over rate;
  6. No send-offs or abuse;
  7. Accept Umpires and Player/Umpires decisions;
  8. Complaints are voiced only through the captain and coach in an appropriate and respectful manner;
  9. Thank Umpires and opponents after the game;
  10. Report anyone who doesn’t uphold these values immediately and appropriately.
  1. Abide by the rules of the game, rules set down by your coach, club and competition.
  2. Never argue with an official or umpire. If you disagree, have your captain, coach or manager approach the official during a break or after the competition.
  3. Control your temper. Verbal or physical abuse of officials, umpires, spectators or other players on either side, deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent or team member is not acceptable or permitted.
  4. Work equally hard for yourself and your team. Your team’s performance will benefit, so will you.
  5. Be a good sport. Applaud all good players whether they are on your team or the other team. Be proud to walk off the ground after each game knowing that you have given your best effort and never involve yourself in an argument with opposing players, umpires or officials.
  6. Treat all players as you would like to be treated. Do not interfere with, bully or take unfair advantage of another player. Your involvement to play is for fun and enjoyment and that winning is only part of it.
  7. Co-operate with your coach and teammates, and respect the ability of your opponent. Without them, there would be no game.
  8. Play for the FUN and not just to please parents and coaches.
  9.  Avoid the use of derogatory language based on gender, race or religion.
  10. Smoking and/or consuming alcohol or partaking in illegal substances is totally forbidden by Juniors whilst involved in any Junior Cricket competition.
  1. Encourage children to participate if they are interested. However, if a child is not willing, do not force them.
  2. Focus upon the child’s effort and performance rather than the overall outcome of the event. This assists the child in setting realistic goals related to their ability by reducing the emphasis on winning.
  3. Teach your child that honest effort is as important as victory so that the result of each game is accepted without undue disappointment.
  4. Encourage your child always to play by the rules.
  5. Never ridicule or yell at your child for making a mistake or losing the competition.
  6. Remember your child should be involved in Cricket for their enjoyment, not yours.
  7. Remember your child learns best by examples. Applaud good play by both your team and by members of the opposing team.
  8. If you disagree with an official or umpire raise the issue through the appropriate channels rather than questioning the official’s judgement and honesty in public. Remember, most officials give their time and effort for your child’s involvement.
  9. Support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from Junior sporting activities.
  10. Recognise the value and importance of volunteer coaches. They give of their time and resources to provide recreational activities for your child and deserve your support.
  11. Support your club officials in maintaining the highest standard of behaviour both on and off the field for the betterment of the competition and your family. Offer your assistance to the team that your child is playing in so that every opportunity is being provided for the very best supervision and support. Your involvement will give both yourself and your child far more satisfaction.
  12. Avoid the use of derogatory language based on gender, race or religion.
  13. There shall be no consumption of alcohol or illegal substances at any Junior matches at any time. Smoking legal cigarettes is discouraged around children.
  1. Be familiar with the Laws of Cricket and abide by the rules and conditions of your Association and Club.
  2. Teach your players that rules of the game are mutual agreements, which no player should evade or break.
  3. Group players according to age, height, and physical maturity whenever possible in any competitive practice session.
  4. Avoid over-playing the talented players. The ‘just average’ players need and deserve equal time.
  5. Remember that the players involved play for fun and enjoyment and that winning is only part of it. Emphasise the importance of the learning and development of skills and positive attitudes. Never ridicule or yell at your players for making mistakes or losing the competition.
  6. Remember to play as the laws were intended and do not manipulate the laws to get an unfair advantage.
  7. Ensure that equipment and facilities meet safety standards and are appropriate for the age and ability of the players.
  8. The scheduling and length of practice times and competitions should take into consideration the maturity level of the players.
  9. Develop team respect for the ability of opponents, as well as for the judgement of umpires and opposing coaches.
  10. Follow the advice of a qualified person when determining when an injured player is ready to play or train again.
  11. Make a personal commitment to keep yourself informed of sound Junior coaching principles and developments. Complete coaching accreditation Foundations and Advanced Foundations courses at a minimum.
