The AWCC Committee has now adopted a new Member Protection Policy in accordance with and encouragement from Cricket Victoria, and other related bodies.
The Policy can be found here, along with the existing Ashburton Willows Cricket Club Code of Conduct, found here.
We encourage all club members to familiarise themselves with both policies.
Given the diverse nature of our club community, and the growing areas such as girls cricket, it’s imperative that our club, and our members have an understanding of what our rights, protections and opportunities are to ensure our time at AWCC is always as positive as it possibly can be.
The Committee will announce the details of a the club’s official Members Protection Information Officer in the coming weeks, and in the interim, if anyone has any questions, concerns or ways in which to further support our club, don’t hesitate to contact the President – Tim Murphy on 0402 038 514 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Junior Cricket Playing Policy
At AWCC we are committed to making sure that all junior players get the most out of their cricketing experience. We wish it to be enjoyable and rewarding. We want to
ensure the environment is one that is encouraging, positive and safe – for players, parents and
supporters. Coaches will try to give all players every opportunity to learn the game, improve
their skills, and contribute meaningfully to the team’s performance on match day. This will apply
especially in the younger grades where there will be clear intent to give everyone an equal go.
As players move into the older grades, especially U/14 and U/16, the coaches will look to
prepare players for the more competitive senior grades cricket. You can read our Junior Cricket Playing Policy here.
