Volunteering at Oakleigh CC


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
