Registrations Close: Sunday 30th January 2022 for both hard-ball and soft-ball cricket
HARDBALL Cricket is offered to Year 5/6 players with prior experience playing cricket.
Please note that in the hardball grade we expect players to be very confident with the hardball being bowled to them at a quick pace, bowling with the hardball and fielding with it. This is to ensure that injuries don’t occur and that players aren’t discouraged because they have been put in the wrong grade for their skill level. When you click hardball on the registration form this doesn’t guarantee your child will be playing hardball.
KIWI Cricket is offered for new or developing year 3/4 and 5/6 players. A semi-hard cricket ball is used in the Kiwi Cricket Year grades, with 8-aside rules structured to encourage the development of skills, team play, understanding and enjoyment of the game.
