Frequently Asked Questions


Joondalup Kinross Junior Cricket Club is a not for profit organisation run by volunteers.  The committee comprises mostly current or past parents of players in the club, who give up their time as volunteers to run the club.   Committee meetings are held on the first Wednesday of the month during the season and all members are welcome to attend.

U10, U11 and U15, U16, U17 have matched on Sunday mornings

U12, U13, U14 have matches on Saturday mornings

Each team (U10-U17) is allocated a home ground on one of our pitches allocated by the Joondalup City council.  Every alternate match is usually played on your home ground and each other week matches usually take place at the home ground of the team you are versing.

Q: When will my child train?  (u10-u17)
Training days and times are set by the coach, so until you have been allocated to a team it is not possible to define days and times. Teams usually train a minimum of once per week. Training times will vary by age and training sessions are held at a number of different locations within the Joondalup/Kinross areas.

Q: What is the minimum age for registration
In accordance with rules set by Cricket Australia, we can only accept registrations for children who are 5 years or older before the start of the programme.  Hence we can only accept registrations for children who are born before 1 November  

Q: What age group will my child play in?

Please refer to the age chart below.  Girls are allowed to play up to two age groups lower than their actual age group if they wish to do so.  In some instances, where it is beneficial to the player, some players are allowed to play up to two years above their actual age.  Careful consideration needs to be taken when placing players in higher age groups so if you have any concerns in this regard please contact the club.  The committee reserves the right to assess and decide on any out of age placements.

Q: Can my child play in a team with his/her friends?

For U10-U17 our policy is to, wherever possible, place friends in the same team.  This is not always possible for various reasons but we try to accommodate requests wherever we can.  Please note on your registration form if your child has a particular friend that they would like to play with.

Q: When will I know what team my child is in?
After our registration day in August we will start finalising teams.  Coaches will then contact their players to discuss training days and times, most likely in early September.

Q: What equipment do I need to buy?
Each team has a fully stocked kit bag, the only equipment we do not supply are protectors for boys.  Many children prefer to provide their own equipment.  All players are required to wear protective equipment as per the rules for their age group, the coach will advise them of this at their first training session.

Q: What do my fees pay for?

As a not for profit organisation we aim to break even and any profit made is channelled straight back into the running and development of the club.  Fees are used for the purchase of equipment and associated costs of running a club. Our coaches, officials and Committee Members are Volunteers and are not paid for their services. 

Q: What are the requirements of parents?
Parent participation is not only encouraged but is essential in supporting and assisting with the running of the club and its amenities. Your team manager will let you know the roles that require parent involvement for your team to compete the season.  We highlight that the success of each team largely revolves around the level of assistance and support offered by the parents in the team.  Some teams provide rosters for duties needing to be performed by their team – the club expects all parents to fulfil their allocated duties as Coaches/Managers are Volunteers and need support from all members.

Q: What are the consequences of on or off field inappropriate behaviour?
All players, team officials and spectators are required to adhere to the codes of conduct, rules, regulations, conditions and decisions of both the North West Metropolitan Cricket Association and Joondalup Kinross Cricket Club. This information can be found on our website.

Q: If I decide to withdraw after registering, can I get a refund?
All requests for refund of fees must be submitted in writing to the Registrar stating the reasons for the request (juniorregistrar@jkcc.com.au). The committee will consider such requests and where fees can be refunded amounts will be deducted for any costs already occurred.

Q: Who do I talk to if I have suggestions or complaints?
If you have a suggestion, concern or complaint, first port of call is your team manager, who may be able to assist and/or pass on your issue(s) to the Committee for action.   

Q: What if I have more questions?
As the pre-season period is extremely busy for the Club officials, please check the club website to see if the required info is available there. If it is not, feel free to contact the club on the addresses listed above. Please also be aware that all Committee members have jobs and families and are involved in the Club on a voluntary basis.
