Farningham Cricket Club Junior Section

Welcome To Farningham Juniors

Farningham Cricket Club Junior Section provides coaching and matches for children aged 4 to 16, overseen by a group of ECB Qualified Coaches and ably assisted by a number of committed volunteers.

The Junior Section has in excess of 100 members, training on various days of the week and playing league and friendly cricket across the North of Kent.

Our well renowned Club Nights often see in excess of 60 juniors training at the club on each night, with the U11 age groups and below receiving coaching on Thursday Evenings, the U13s and U15s coaching on Mondays both nights see many a parent enjoying a drink and a bite to eat from the patio overlooking the private ground.

Our training setup is designed to cater for both age and ability, with a team of coaches working towards a specific programme drawn up by our Head Coach, designed to allow children to get the most out of the game, in terms of both enjoyment and skill acquisition.

We have ECB ClubMark accreditation which means we adhere to rigorous quality standards with all of our coaches are DBS checked.  Child welfare is extremely important to us and we have dedicated Child Welfare Officers (CWO) to ensure that each child, and their parents, have an independent point of contact for any concerns.

Code of Conduct

Farningham Cricket Club is fully committed to the safeguarding the wellbeing of all members, be they junior or senior, at all times.

All Juniors are expected to abide by the Code of Conduct /Set of Rules for young people and Parents must abide by the Code of Conduct for Members and Guests at all times. Both of these documents can be found in our document library.

Important Information - Preparing for Sessions

  • All cricketers should come to training sessions and matches with plenty of fluids and sunscreen during hot days. Cricketers should not share drinking containers.

  • All junior cricketers, when batting during hard ball cricket, must wear a helmet with face-guard that complies with British Standards (in this case BS7928:1998 Specification for Head Protectors for Cricketers, British Standards Institute). These are supplied by all leading manufacturers. They must also wear protective leg pads, abdominal protector/box, batting gloves, and use a bat that is fit for purpose. Whilst we recommend that all players have their own kit (specifically box and helmet) the club does carry spare equipment for each age group in case of need. The suitability of club equipment is monitored by the coaching team.
  • Wicketkeepers, when keeping up to the stumps, where a hard ball is being used, must wear a helmet with a face guard that complies with British Standards. All wicketkeepers must also use a protector/box, wicket-keeping gloves and leg guards.
  • We do not accept parental authority for juniors to remove their helmet (as above) under any circumstances.
  • Appropriate footwear should be worn.
  • If in doubt on any of the above points please speak to any of the club coaches.
  • Parents and guardians are welcome to stay and watch their children be coached or play their games, though this is entirely at your option.
