Code of Conduct

The Ramblers have  a code of conduct for all junior players/coaches/parents/spectators to respect and abide by. We feel this is an import aspect of being part of the Ramblers cricket club and to be part of the overall community.

History

In the 2009/10 season, the Coromandel Ramblers Cricket Club entered into new territories by establishing a junior program for the local community. As a start, the club undertook two new approaches, with a view to establish close links with the local junior community and strive in meeting its need to play cricket in a fun and social setting.

In this season, the club undertook an in2CRICKET centre, which offered children from about 5 to 8 years of age to develop the basics skills of cricket in a family friendly environment. This program formed the basis of working the local community and establishing links between schools, other cricket programs and the club itself. This program is run by volunteers and parents for the benefit of the keenest (and youngest) cricketers around.

Further, the club also nominated an Under 11’s side in the South Central Junior Cricket Association, which played its games on Sunday morning as a means to not interrupt school cricket. Again, these games are played in a social atmosphere where skill and social development is placed as important, but a competitive aspect is also included.

Both of these programs continued in the 2010/11 and then the 2011/2012 season.

In the 2011/2012 season and after only a couple of seasons of running our junior program, our U15 side won the premiership! The club as a whole are absolutely thrilled with the team’s outstanding performance and delighted to see that the hard work by players, coaches, parents and the club as a whole has paid off already. Since then, we’ve continued our success with more members, improved facilities and opportunities for all.

As of the 2014/15 season, the Association changed the gradings to be U10s/U12s/U14s/U16s.

In 2015/16, the club started an U10’s program which provided a great pathway from our Milo in2CRICKET program into the junior ranks.

In 2017/18, our U14s won the double premiership – winning both the T20 Competition and 2-Day competition!

The Club’s junior program continues to expand into the 2018/19 season with more teams than ever!
