Junior Cricket

Welcome to Knaresborough Cricket Club Juniors.

Knaresborough Cricket Club is proud of its place at the heart of the town’s community and in 2015 celebrated its 200th anniversary. Our ground on Aspin Lane has great facilities, including outdoor training nets and a clubhouse with function room. Our aim is to become one of the top cricket clubs in the region.

We have a thriving junior section that offers cricket coaching and competition for children and young people aged 5 to 18 years of age. All coaching is lead by qualified coaches who are trained and have been screened for their suitability for working with young people. Our young cricketers enjoy opportunities to develop in a friendly environment, meet others who share their aspirations and compete at their own level in the Nidderdale Junior Cricket League.

We participate in the ECB All Stars and Dynamos cricket coaching schemes.

The Club has been accredited with Clubmark, which the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) awards to clubs that meet quality criteria for their cricket programme; duty of care and safeguarding children; sports equity and ethics; and club management. Clubmark is an acknowledgement that we take these issues seriously and that we strive to provide a high-quality and welcoming environment for young cricketers.

We welcome parents and carers to all training and competitions and value your support. Junior cricket development is a top priority for Knaresborough Cricket Club and we are keen to hear your views on how you think we are doing and receive any suggestions for improvement. If you have any comments or queries, or would like to become involved with our junior activities, please do not hesitate to speak to any of us.
