Please contact the Registrar (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are not sure what is best for your child, particularly if they are new to the game
Players may only play up 1 age group (e.g. if you are 11 on 31 August 2018 you can play U12 or U13, not U14). This is at the discretion of the Junior Committee. This does not apply to Sixers Girls Only teams.
Dispensation is required to play down an age group. This sometimes happens with birthdays close to the August 31 cut-off date. Contact the email@example.com if you wish to pursue this option.
Where numbers dictate in particular Age Groups, it may be necessary for the Club to conduct a Skills Assessment Test to ensure that boys and girls are graded/placed in the most suitable form of cricket. The Skills Assessment includes reviewing performance statistics in MyCricket and batting, bowling and fielding sessions. Age Coordinators will advise you if this is process is necessary.
