Lane Cove Cricket Club Juniors
Lane Cove Juniors plays in the North Shore Junior Cricket Association (NSJCA) and fields teams from Under 9s through to Under 16/17. Lane Cove Juniors also runs the in2cricketdevelopment program for under 6’s, 7’s and 8’s.
REGISTRATIONS FOR THE 2015/16 SEASON ARE NOW OPEN
The 2015/16 season for U10 and older competitions begins on 19th/20th of September. Allocation of registered players into teams for U10 and older will commence on 24th August. While every effort will be made to accommodate late registrations, once teams are selected we may not be able to place your child/ren in their preferred team, or in a team at all. Registration fees will be refunded if your child cannot be placed in a team.
The U9 competition starts on Saturday the 10th of October. U9’s play a modified non-competition format (“Average Cricket”).
In-2-Cricket also commences on Saturday the 10th October. Information on in2cricket is HERE.
REGISTRATION INFORMATION 2015/16
The NSJCA Competitions age cutoff date is 31st August – e.g. players are eligible for a particular age group if they are under that age as at the 31st August. For example, if your child is aged 11 on the 31st of August they are eligible for U12s.
You may request that your child play up one year. The LCCC Juniors Committee’s strong recommendation is that children play in their true age group. We recognise that playing with friends in a higher age group is often a key consideration. However the club’s aim is to maximise the development and enjoyment of all players, and this is compromised when children play in a competition that is above their skill level. Players who do benefit from playing up an age level typically have aspirations to play representative cricket. Requests to play uptwo age groups should be submitted to the relevant age coordinator (listed below). Approval to play up two age groups is at the discretion of the LCCC Juniors Committee given regard to player safety and enjoyment, and may also be subject to a net trial.
Requests to play down one age group should be discussed with the relevant age coordinator. Approval is at the discretion of the Junior Committee and must also be submitted in writing to the NSJCA for approval. Girls are automatically granted dispensation to play down one age group if requested.
The club’s policy on grading players and teams is HERE.
