Junior Team Info

The Junior players are grouped into teams based on the year they are in at school at the beginning of the season. We'll try to accommodate requests to keeps friends playing together - but if this can't be done there are always new friend to be made.

All our junior teams are coached by volunteers, usually a parent of one of the team players. All teams and coaches need assistance with scoring, umpiring, scorers and help on sidelines.

The Junior club is run solely by volunteers. There are heaps of little jobs needing to be done, joining the committee is a great way to support the children and the volunteer coaches.

Playing gear & Club Uniforms

At the start of each season, all team coaches are provided with a complete gear bag. This contains all the equipment necessary to train and field their team. So you do not have to purchase any equipment for your child to start playing. Your child will,of course, encourage you to help them build up their own kit!

Players are encourage to wear our Club Uniform, which comprises of a white polo top, white long pants and cap with the club logo. They are available from our supplier Sports Emporium. Futher details click here.

Changes to Junior cricket in New Zealand

This summer 2018/19 season New Zealand has made exciting changes to the formats of junior cricket, to improve the enjoyment of the game for the players and families.

Different Ages & Different Stages spells out NZC's Junior Cricket objectives and, significantly, the necessity to make the game more accessible for Kiwi kids by making it their size, which means; shorter pitch lengths, fewer player numbers and shortened boundaries. Think faster, more running, more balls in play; fewer wides. Think more fun.
