Hawkes Bay Camps

Hawke's Bay Cricket Camps

Since 2013 the Hutt District Junior club has sent the Year 7 Development team to take part in this fantastic concept to develop our young cricketers - the experience they remember for life.

In 2017, the Junior Club for the first time had 4 teams taking part in the Year 5, Year 6, Year 7 and Year 8 grades.

This year our Junior Club will be looking to have a team playing in each grade Year 5 to Year 8.

The Year 6, Year 7 & Year 8 teams are selected as part of the club development program and take part in the 'A' division games.

The club will also support any keen parents or coaches to take away a side to play in the Year 5 grade and in the Year 6/7 B division matches.
