Junior Club

The Claremont Nedlands Junior Cricket Club has 43 teams located in the western suburbs of Perth.

We had 600+ players, from 5 year olds to 17 year olds, registered for the 2019-2020 season participate in our local zone competitions and in the programme. The Club thrives through the volunteer efforts of parents in coaching and managing the various teams and also in working on our Committee. Please let us know if you can provide assistance in these roles, or by sponsoring our Club.

The Club's philosophy is to focus on developing the children's cricket skills and love for the game making sure everyone gets a fair go and can really enjoy their cricket no matter what level you are.

The Club requires our coaches to obtain a Cricket Australia Level 1 coaching qualification to improve the level of coaching being offered to our junior cricketers. The Club is keen to ensure all our juniors receive better coaching and one aspect of this is to ensure our coaches have the requisite skills.

Community Cricket

The Western Australian Cricket Association manages junior cricket in the Perth Metropolitan area through the Community Junior Cricket Council (CJCC).

CNCC fields Community Cricket teams for boys from U10s to U16s/17s, and for girls in the U11s and U13s age groups.

Community Cricket is a fun way for boys and girls to play cricket with their friends.

Usually, volunteer parents will coach and manage the teams, with CNCC arranging for coaches to undertake free of charge the 3 hour Level 1 Coaching course to assist them with coaching the team in a fun and engaging way. CNCC’s coaching staff also provides assistance to our Community coaches and players.

The age group cut off date for teams is 30 June - so, to play Under 10s for example, the player must be 9 years of age on 30 June for the upcoming season.

Emerging Tigers Program 2020/21

The Emerging Tigers Program, led by CNCC first grade coach Jim Allenby, is a new initiative to develop the skills of selected U/13 and U/14 CNCC Community Cricket players who aspire to playing District Cricket for CNCC.

The aim of the program is to bridge the gap between Community Cricket and District Cricket by giving selected CNCC players, who are not currently in the District program, the opportunity to train with high quality coaches and use excellent facilities.

Players in the Emerging Tigers program can be made available for District Cricket selection throughout the season if opportunities and form allow.

CNCC Community team coaches will also be invited to observe and participate in Emerging Tigers' training sessions to further develop their coaching skills and knowledge of the District program.

Initially, 12 players will be selected to train together over 10 sessions throughout the season, mostly on Wednesday afternoons. It is also planned that the Emerging Tigers Program will play games against other clubs to be arranged throughout the season.

Further information will be provided to players who are offered places in the Program.
