For all hardball cricket, the club's policy is that all players must wear a helmet.  Helmets and boxes are considered personal items and are not supplied in the team gear bag. Children are welcome to bring their own gear, but please name and phone number it! Kookaburra Commander 142g white balls are used for this grade.

Coaching

The Club is reliant on volunteer support to coach and manage these teams. The team's coach/es take team practices, are responsible for the gear bag and help to set up games on Saturday mornings. Don't worry! We have lots of resources to help you if you're new to coaching and are happy to answer any questions you may have.  All of our coaches must complete the free Advanced Foundation Course and be police vetted by NZC. Contact the Grafton office for more information. 

Cancellations

ACA will cancel all junior and youth morning cricket should there be an Auckland weather advisory from the Metservice advising that it is unsafe to travel to games. This will be communicated through the ACA website or Facebook. ACA encourage Coaches/Managers to contact their opposition if they are unsure whether the game is going ahead. These details will be provided to team coaches before the start of the season.
