Club Information

  • About Us

    The Bedford Junior Cricket Club (BJCC) is a long standing and highly respected cricket club in our local community and is also affiliated with the Western Australian Cricket Association. The Club has been a part of the Bedford local community and surrounding areas for well over 60 years, with over 10,000 junior cricketers having played with the Club over that time.

    BJCC is a non-profit organisation with about 160 playing members. The BJCC provides cricket training and development opportunities for new or existing players from the ages of 4 to 17 years, offering Junior Blaster, Master Blaster, age group programs and teams, as well as girls only teams.

    Last season we fielded 15 teams competing over various grades, including our first-ever girls-only teams. We are hoping to field a similar amount of teams this season. We compete in the Central Junior Cricket Association in which around 15 clubs are involved. Last season our teams performed strongly with two of our teams taking out the premiership in their respective age divisions.

    Our clubrooms and main home ground is located at Grand Prom Reserve on Grand Prom in Bedford, but our teams also play home games at four other locations – Beaufort Park, Bedford, Shearn Park, Inglewood, Hillcrest Oval, Bayswater and De Lacy Reserve, Maylands.

    The Spirit of Cricket

    Cricket is a game that owes much of its unique appeal to the fact that it should be played not only within its laws but also within the spirit of the game. Any action which is seen to abuse this spirit causes injury to the game itself.

    Coaches’ Code of Conduct

    A coach must:

    • remember that young people participate for pleasure and winning is only part of the fun;
    • never ridicule or yell at a young player for making a mistake or not coming first;
    • be reasonable in your demands on players’ time, energy and enthusiasm;
    • operate within the rules and Spirit of Cricket and teach your players to do the same;
    • ensure that the time players spend with you is a positive experience;
    • avoid overplaying the talented players; all young players need and deserve equal time, attention and opportunities;
    • ensure that equipment and facilities meet safety standards and are appropriate to the age and ability of all players;
    • display control and respect to all those involved in cricket. This includes opponents, coaches, umpires, administrators, parents and spectators. Encourage your players to do the same;
    • obtain appropriate qualifications and keep up to date with the latest cricket coaching practices and principles of growth and development of young people;
    • ensure that any physical contact with a young person should be appropriate to the situation and necessary for the player’s skill development;
    • respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion; and
    • abide by Clubs/Associations/Councils’ Healthy Club Policies.

    Parents’ Code of Conduct

    A parent must:

    • not force an unwilling child to participate in cricket;
    • remember, children are involved in cricket for their enjoyment, not yours;
    • encourage your child to play by the rules;
    • focus on the child’s efforts and performance rather than winning or losing;
    • never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a game;
    • remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate good performances and skilful plays by all participants;
    • support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from sporting activities;
    • respect officials’ decisions and teach children to do likewise;
    • show appreciation for volunteer coaches, officials and administrators. Without them, your child could not participate;
    • respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion; and
    • abide by Clubs/Associations/Councils’ Healthy Club Policies at Junior Cricket Matches.

    Players’ Code of Conduct

    A player must:

    • play by the rules;
    • never argue with an umpire. If you disagree, have your captain, coach or manager approach the umpire during a break or after the game;
    • control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials and sledging other players, deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent are not acceptable or permitted behaviours in cricket;
    • work equally hard for yourself and your teammates. Your team’s performance will benefit and so will you;
    • be a good sport. Applaud all good plays whether they are made by your team or the opposition;
    • treat all participants in cricket as you like to be treated. Do not bully or take unfair advantage of another competitor;
    • cooperate with your coach, teammates and opponents. Without them there would be no competition;
    • participate for your own enjoyment and benefit, not just to please parents and coaches;
    • respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion; and
    • not smoke at Junior Cricket Matches.

    Umpires’ Code of Conduct

    An umpire must:

    • place the safety and welfare of participants above all else;
    • in accordance with Cricket Australia and CJCC guidelines, modify rules and regulations to match the skill levels and needs of young people;
    • compliment and encourage all participants;
    • be consistent, objective and courteous when making decisions;
    • condemn unsporting behaviour and promote respect for all opponents;
    • emphasise the spirit of the game rather than the errors;
    • encourage and promote rule changes which will make participation more enjoyable;
    • be a good sport themselves – actions speak louder than words;
    • keep up to date with the latest available resources for umpiring and the principles of growth and development of young people;
    • remember to set an example. An umpire’s behaviour and comments should be positive and supportive;
    • give all young people a ‘fair go’ regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion; and
    • abide by Clubs/Associations/Councils’ Healthy Club Policies.
  • Community

    Our Club has been a consistent presence in the local community for well over 60 years and we are keenly aware of the important role we play in our community.

    We are proud of the positive reputation that the Club enjoys within the local area.

    Whether it’s supporting the annual ‘Pink Stumps Day’ for the McGrath Foundation or teaching our youngsters about resilience and sportsmanship, our Club recognises and embraces its responsibilities.

    By setting an example of community minded participation, the Club encourages its members to do likewise.

    Please note that all fees must be paid at the time of registration. You may be eligible for financial assistance towards your fees via the KidSport funding program.

  • Kidsport
    Kidsport

    KidSport enables eligible Western Australian children aged 5 – 18 years to participate in community sport and recreation by offering them financial assistance towards club fees.

    KidSport eligibility

    To be eligible for KidSport applicants must be:

    • Aged 5 to 18 years
    • A resident in Western Australia
    • ANamed on a valid Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card
    • Registering with a KidSport approved club.

    If your child will be 5 for the majority of the playing season, then the Kidsport application will still be considered. If your child is 18 at the time of application they will still be eligible for KidSport.

    Application process

    Applications are open all year round and can be completed online in three simple steps:

    • Check your child is eligible
    • Find an approved KidSport club here
    • Apply online here (or via hard copy application if you don’t have access to the internet).

    Before you apply

    Ensure you have a photo of your Health Care or Pensioner Concession Card ready to attach as a file online. The card must be current (not expired) and display the child’s name and individual Centrelink Client Reference Number (CRN) on the card.

    It is recommended using a desktop/laptop computer and using Google Chrome browser when completing the online application form.

    Remember to allow enough time for your application to be processed before your child’s season starts.

    Tips for completing the application

    • Provide a valid email address when applying for Kidsport as this is email used for all correspondence from the KidSport team.
    • If your application has been submitted successfully, a ‘Thank you for submitting’ page will appear and you will receive email notification from kidsport@dlgsc.wa.gov.au.
    • You must select the local government area in which you reside. Children can still join clubs outside their local government area.
    • You can apply for KidSport each calendar year that your child meets the eligibility criteria. Select ‘yes’ in the application form if your child has registered for KidSport funding previously for quicker form completion.
    • KidSport is claimable for multiple sports for a maximum amount of $150 per year. You will need to submit one application per sport and can choose how much to allocate per sport.
    • To find out if your child has any funding remaining for the year start an application online. The remaining funding amount will be displayed at the top of the second page in a yellow banner.
    • If your preferred club isn’t an approved KidSport club you cannot receive KidSport funding to help cover fees. You may choose to contact your club and direct them to the information for clubs page to see if they are interested in becoming a KidSport approved club.
    • Applications are completed through the online application form. Alternatively, hard copy application forms are available at most local governments and can be downloaded from this link.
  • The Bedford Junior Cricket Club is committed to providing a safe environment for children under the age of 18 to play cricket and recognises that the Club has a moral and legal obligation to ensure that when given responsibility for young people, Club personnel provide them with the highest possible standard of care.

    See our commitment statement here.

    The BJCC recognises that the welfare of children is paramount and is committed to providing a safe and positive experience (free from bullying, physical, emotional or sexual abuse or neglect) for all children, regardless of their age, gender, culture, language, racial origin, religious beliefs, sexual orientation and/or ability.

    The BJCC will endeavour to do this by:

    • recognising that all children playing cricket have a right to have fun and be protected from harm in a safe environment;
    • ensuring all people involved with children at the Club understand their responsibility to take all reasonable steps to protect children from harm, discrimination and/or degrading treatment and to respect their rights, wishes and feelings;
    • recruiting volunteers with regard to their suitability to work with children, and provide guidance and/or education and training in good practice and child protection procedures as necessary;
    • ensuring all suspicions and allegation of poor practice or abuse will be taken seriously and responded to quickly and appropriately by following procedures and where necessary reporting concerns to appropriate authorities; and
    • using a Dispute Resolution process that will help parents, children and volunteers to raise their concerns, thus providing all Club members with the opportunity to voice any concerns or issues related to child safety.

    For more information regarding safeguarding children in cricket, please see the WACA website or contact our Child Safety Officer, Emily Glover, at childsafetyofficer@bedfordjcc.com.au.
