Boys Year 9/10
Enrolments for Year 9/10 & U19 for the 2017-18 season are now open and will close on 30th September, 2017. Teams will be advised in mid October. However, players may enroll after the close off date depending on available team places. Please contact the club if you wish to enroll your child after the close off date. Unless player numbers permit there will be no team trials (see selection policy.
Year 9/10: Eligibility for this grade will be based on the player's school year in the year in which the season starts, i.e. for the 2017-18 season; players must be in either Year 9 or Year 10 at school in 2017.
The Year 9/10 grade runs as 3 distinct competitions – a 4-week 1-Day competition from October 28th until college cricket finishes on Nov 18th, a 4-week Twenty20 competition from November 25th to December 16th (2 games per day), and post-Christmas 1-Day and 2-Day competitions through February and March. Players initially register for the first-half of the season only – this registration covers both the pre-Christmas 1-Day and T20 games. Teams will need to be re-formed for the T20 and second-half depending on the number of players who register for these competitions.
The T20 competition in December provides the opportunity for those boys playing Colts cricket at school or those playing morning school cricket to re-engage with their former Club mates. Players will be able to register for this competition in November. Teams play against clubs from the Auckland region so some travel is required to game venues when playing away from home. All games are played in the afternoons - 1:45pm whist school cricket is being played and 12:30pm when it isn't.
