Cricket available for junior boys 2018/19 

(boys in school years 1-8 in 2018)

Please note registration is a bit different this year. The first part of registration is registering as a club member ($100) then select the format of cricket your child would like to play, charge depends on what selected. Kids in years 1-4 select Little League (either junior or senior) kids in school years 5 and up select either soft ball sixes or hardball. All grades include a team photo and coaching. 

Check out some background about why it is changing HERE

At registration you will be asked to choose between Soft ball sixes and Hardball Smash for Saturday Cricket.

Hardball Smash replaces what has been called 'Hardball' before. Conveners will sort Saturday Hardball Smash teams. Trials may be needed for some teams in some grades. You can only select ONE option to play on a Saturday (i.e. you can't play soft ball sixes and Saturday hardball smash). It is possible to play both Saturday and mid week cricket if that is an option in child's year group.

Soft ball Sixers is played from 8am-9.20am. Morning Hardball Smash is played from 9.30-midday. Afternoon Hardball Smash starts at 12.30pm.

Please contact your grade convener if you have any questions.

New playing conditions for all grades are on the Auckland Cricket Website HERE - Picture summaries below
