Junior Cricket in New Zealand

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 teams are coached by volunteers, usually a parent of one of the team. All teams and coaches need assistance, teams require managers, scorers and assistants. Please see you team coach to volunteer.

If you would like to coach a team Cricket Wellington and Hutt Districts Club offer free coaching courses - to be a coach you do not need to have been a player.

Matches are played on a Saturday morning at 8:30 accross the Hutt Valley. Some of the senior teams may play in the afternoons and across the greater Wellington region.

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.

National Cricket Players Database (CricHQ)

All registered players will be included on a National Database. This NZ Cricket project is aimed at building a profile for each cricket participant. The data base will be run by CricHQ, in partnership with NZ Cricket. All those registering will need to agree to participate in this.

Once registration is completed all players will be added to their respective teams in CricHQ so that scorers using the cellphone & tablet apps will have all the data at their fingertips.

Playing Gear and 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!

Our Club Uniform is comprises a polo and cap in club colours and logo, they are available for ordering at registration days and look great. For details click here.
