Overview

Playing age: Players should be in Y8 at the start of the season 

Teams: Maximum 9 on the field. 

Playing conditions: 18m pitch length and a 45m boundary. 

Trials: Pre-season trials will determine whether players play in the pink ball or white ball grades. Players can decide not to trial.

Practices: Usually on a Wednesday or Thursday evening at Cox's Bay or Victoria Park.

Gear: Some playing & coaching gear  will be supplied to the team coach at the start of the season, please help the team look after it. More gear is available as needed, please contact the GUCC Office. 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. Players are encouraged to bring their own gear - please name and phone number it!

Clothing: White or light coloured clothing and closed in shoes must be worn. GUCC shirts are available from Cricket Express but are not compulsory.

Coaching: The Club is reliant on volunteer support to coach and manage these teams. The team's coach/es coaches 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 online Advanced Foundation course and attend a practical element that will be held at Grafton. Coaches must 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.
