At Bicester & North Oxford we pride ourselves on the quality of our youth coaching. Approximately 50% of our senior sides are players that have developed through our youth set up. We have had many players go on to play representative cricket for Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire.
We run youth sides at Under 11, Under 13, Under 15 and Under 17 levels. These sides play fixtures during the season. Members of the Under 17 squad will usually attend senior training. Players in the younger age groups attend Youth Coaching.
Summer Youth Coaching
During the summer months youth coaching takes place for boys and girls from school year 2. Coaching sessions are run by the club's ECB-qualified coaches in the following age groups: Under 9, Under 11, Under 13, Under 15 & Under 17. They take place at our club ground on Akeman Street, Chesterton (for directions click here).
Sessions in 2017 will run every every Wednesday evening from 19 April to 19 July from 6.30-8pm. There will be a registration night on Wednesday 19 April.
The cost for the season is £65 (£50 for additional siblings) and includes club membership and a BNOCC playing shirt.
Membership forms can be downloaded here.
