Can my child play up an age group?
Each age group competition is restricted to players no more than 2 years under that age as at 30 June in the year the season commenced. The skills and abilities of the player may also need to be taken into account if you are looking for your child to play up an age group. Please contact our Registrar at email@example.com if you have any questions about this.
Do girls have to play Girls Only cricket?
No they do not. Girls can play in any junior (mixed) team or they can decide to play in a Girls Only competition. If girls do decide to play in a mixed competition, they may play up to 2 years below their age (note: this does not apply to Girls Only cricket).
