Lisarow-Ourimbah Cricket Club is known as the Mighty Magpies. Our colours are black and white and come from the colours of the local magpie. The club aims to provide children from the local areas of Lisarow, Niagara Park, Ourimbah, Tuggerah, Fountaindale, Chittaway, Glenning Valley and Berkeley Vale with the opportunity to learn the skills of cricket.
This starts with the youngest 5 years old having fun with Junior Blasters, progressing to learning some basic skills in the Master Blasters Competition and then onto developing some fundamental cricket skills in the 11 to 16 years age groups. As well as technical skills, cricket aims to help develop the characteristics in children of teamwork, commitment, perseverance and good sportsmanship through learning the etiquette of cricket.
We are a very friendly family-oriented club with kids having fun as our first priority.
Every year we have a Christmas party for the kids with Santa flying in on a helicopter to hand out presents to the children.
A Club Gala Day is another annual event where mixed teams of varying age groups are organised to compete in a friendly Twenty20 round robin to finish off the season. Members of the winning team on the day are presented with a trophy on the Club Presentation Night.
Also on Club Presentation Night all Players in every team are recognised with a trophy and Cricket Certificate detailing their statistics for the season.
Our registration fees are low and very competitive. Our grounds are the best on The Central Coast with 3 full-sized fields and a smaller field. We have a modern club house with the best canteen around operating every Saturday for our home games.
So come and join the Mighty Magpies for a great season of cricket!
