Saturday cricket covers age groups from U8s through to the Open Divisions (U16-17). The following information provides an overview of the various age groups. BNJCA provides a rule book which details the specific rules applying to each age group. Because of the sometimes subtle differences in rules between the different age groups, those involved in umpiring and scoring must be familiar with these differences. Assuming rules based on earlier years has been known to cause some distress and is easily avoided by reading the rule book and keeping a copy at the ready during a game for a quick reference if needed.
Note: Age groups are based on the DOB for the year from 1st September to 31st August the following year and not the Calendar year. For correct age groupings, refer to Join the fireballs.
The season runs Fri 7th October 2016 to Sat 3rd December 2016, and then agina in Term 1 2017 late January to March 2017.
