About the project

If there's one thing the Covid-19 pandemic has taught us its that we need each other and to be out playing or watching cricket at the beautiful Ryder, Macalister and Ransford Ovals.

We all know being part of a sport team is good for the hearts and minds of young people. At Youlden Parkville young people make lifelong friends and have a place where they feel safe and supported.

At Youlden Parkville our junior cricketers know that if they're flying, falling or fumbling - we always have their back.

We need your support to keep providing a fantastic junior cricket program to local young people.  

Your donation will be used to

  • Employ former Windies test player Kenroy Peters as Head Junior Coach. Kenroy is a great coach of all age groups and the junior players respond super well to his positive and unique approach.

  • Create new "home grown" coaches. Building the confidence and skills of club members to be leaders is critical to our long term success. Your donation helps us employ recently graduated junior players as coaches, and create new opportunities for senior players to coach our young players.

  • Innovate or die. Your donation gives us the resources we need to experiment with new ways to recruit young players to YPCC. For example our Autumn Vibes Girls program has been running from March to the end of May. It's recruited an amazing 49 participants - 61% of whom have never played cricket before.

Your support really matters to our junior cricketers.

One of our junior girl cricketers - the talented Twinkle Raut - who plays in a mixed boys/girls team explains it best.

It’s so just fun to know people are helping me be my best. I like the way it’s ok if you don’t do the greatest. My team always include and encourage me - no matter what.

I remember when I was bowling my first over in a game and I was really nervous. One of my team said: “You’ve got this Twinkle” - I felt so powerful. And I got a wicket!

I wasn’t expecting people to be such good sports, even when they lose. They’re always just happy to play. When people see you in your YPCC shirt they’ll always say “hi ya”. It makes me feel part of the community.
