Development Program

 

Team Grading Policy

           Participation vs. Winning

 

 

Senior Selection 

   
The Club runs a Junior Development program which will assist children that are looking to extend themselves and play senior and representative cricket. Tristan Banks (Level 2 coach) will run this program by invitation only on Thursdays at senior training

 

T20 Master Blaster
All 8-9 year olds, particularly those transitioning from Junior Master Blaster Cricket are to at least have one season of T20 Master Blast Cricket before they commence playing under age cricket
U11s and girls cricket is about participation and all players will have an opportunity to bat and bowl.
 
U13s Boys
Competition is also about participation, with an eye toward winning. The aim is to give everyone a bat and bowl, during the season. Should the team make the finals, the focus then becomes about winning, so not all players may get the opportunity to bat and bowl.

 

U15s and U17s Boys
Competitions are more competitive with an aim to playing players in there areas of strength. Coaches will try to give as many players as many opportunities as possible, but not all players should expect a bat and bowl every week. Again, the focus in final campaigns changes to winning games so not all boys will get to bat and bowl.
Grading of Teams

 

The grading of teams will be made by the Junior President and based on Ability, Attitude and Potential with consultation from coaches.

Senior selection


Juniors are able to play seniors if their skill levels warrant or selection availability arises. Please inform the Junior President if you want your child to be available for senior selection. It is the responsibility of each junior player to check if they have been selected in senior teams and make unavailabilities known before selection night on Thursday.

There are a number of important positions that need to be filled by Junior parents. These include:

- Coaches - Please let us know if you can be a coach or and assistant coach 
- Team Managers: Each team requires a manager!
- Day duties - umpires, scorers, set-up and morning tea
