Junior Playing Formats Summary

Eastern Suburbs Cricket Club Logo

The relevant age group is determined by the age of the player as at 31 August. e.g. if your child is 11 on 31 August they will fall into the Under 12 Age Group.

The age groups are generally a good guide and it is expected in the ordinary course that it will be appropriate for a child to play in their relevant age group. However, what is more important is that players have the opportunity to play at the level which is most appropriate for their relevant expertise. Accordingly, we will assign players to play up or down age groups as appropriate
