Junior Cricket

Boasting some of the best synthetic and turf facilities in the region, Oakleigh Cricket Club prides itself on providing a holistic cricket pathway for girls & boys – from Woolworths Cricket Blast (5-10yo) through to Senior Cricket. 

Oakleigh Cricket Club aims to provide a fun and engaging environment that develops all young cricketers and help them fulfil their potential.

Our focus: 

  • Establish & advance girls’ cricket at OCC by driving participation and providing turf cricket opportunities

  • Work with Monash Council to provide state of the art facilities that align with our ambitions as a club & offering to the community

  • Develop the standard of coaching we provide

  • Provide opportunities for juniors to progress and excel in senior cricket

Run entirely by volunteers, the club prides itself on the opportunities it provides for development and enjoyment of young cricketers. We require the off-field support of all members to function. We are only as good as our volunteers, so if you can assist in any way, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

J.G. Craig Shield

Under 15 Representative Cricket

Each season, the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association (VSDCA) runs the J.G. Craig Shield competition for Under 15 cricketers. It is recognised as the premier U15 cricket competition in Victoria and is played on the professionally prepared turf wickets of the 32 VSDCA clubs in January each year.

To be eligible to play in the JG Craig competition, players must be under 15 years of age as of September 1.

We have historically fielded a team that is a combination of the best current Oakleigh CC U15 players together with juniors from other metropolitan clubs in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne as well as players from rural Victoria.


Volunteers are the backbone of all grass roots sporting communities and Oakleigh Cricket Club is no different.

All aspects of our club are supported by volunteers and we simply would not be able to operate without their ongoing contribution. Whether it be on-field or off-field, the Club is always seeking out new volunteers willing to assist in the best way that they possibly can.


The Oakleigh Cricket Club has a strong and proud tradition of parent engagement, with all our roles taken on in a voluntary capacity to ensure our junior boys and girls enjoy the game of cricket.


We ask families to volunteer for at least one role for their child’s team:

  • Team Manager - organise roster of parent help on match day, email parents of social events, match day/training details, answer queries, can enter scores on MyCricket if coach prefers.

  • Scoring - to be on a roster of scorers for your team. Training on scoring or having a scoring buddy/mentor is available.

  • Ground set up - to be on a roster to mark out the boundary from the wicket with cones, set up scorers’ table, scoreboard, tea table, checking kit is complete at the end of the match.

  • Umpiring - when needed as directed by the coach. Know the laws and specific rules for your age group (+ when necessary, be able to give your own child ‘out’!)

  • Training - assist with training activities (as directed by the coach)

  • Uniforms - help with the ordering and distribution of club uniforms

  • Social & Fundraising - social & fundraising efforts to promote the junior club and keep costs down
