HOW ARE TEAMS RUN?
Volunteers are essential for the support and future of Marist Cricket. Please mark the appropriate box when you complete the on-line registration form if you are able to coach, manage, umpire or score this season. Training and accreditation for coaches will be available during the season. Please note: it is now a mandatory requirement for all volunteers to have a Working with Vulnerable People card.
WHAT AGE DOES MY SON NEED TO BE?
Boys can play cricket from Year 4 to Year 12. Depending on date of birth, your son will play Stage 1 in Year 4 or Stage 2 in Year 7. Requests for friendship groups, last year’s teams and other requests will be the key determinants for team allocation within each Stage.
Boys not at Marist in Year 3 or Year 6 (or other years)
who gain enrolment for next year are encouraged to
play for Marist this coming season.
Please read our Stages not Ages infographic
WHEN ARE DIV 1 TRIALS?
It is expected that the team grading process will take place late August to the middle of September of each year.
Players are not graded in Under 10s and only those players who wish to try out for Division 1 teams need to attend the trials. If we have more than one team in the same division of any age group, teams of equal capability are selected.
WHEN DOES THE SEASON START?
The season will commence in mid-October. Play will break in late-December for the Christmas holidays and recommence at the end of January to then finish in March.
WHAT DAYS/TIMES WILL MY SON PLAY?While scheduled playing times are not known until closer to the start of the season, an indication is provided below. Please note: some age groups will also be scheduled to play mid-week T20 matches.
Currently our schedule of days and times for teams are yet to be finalised. Please come back soon.
DO I HAVE TO PROVIDE CRICKET GEAR?
For health and hygiene reasons, players are required to supply their own helmet and protector. All other items will generally be provided in the team cricket kit. Players may use their own equipment (bat, pads, gloves, etc) if they have it, but it is the player’s responsibility to look after their personal equipment at training and at the game. Wearing of helmets is compulsory for all batsmen regardless of age at both training and matches.
WHAT DO PLAYERS WEAR?
All players are to observe the dress requirements for Marist Cricket, i.e. official playing shirt embroidered with the College crest, white/cream trousers. The Club’s playing shirt is long sleeved and rated 50+ SPF. Players should wear the Club’s broad-brimmed cricket hat or Marist cap. These items are available only from the College Clothing Shop. Players may wear sunglasses, provided they do not interfere with their ability to participate in the game.
WHAT IF MY SON ALSO PLAYS FOR A SENIOR CLUB?
Those boys planning on playing for a senior club beyond Marist this season, please register with Marist on PlayHQ first and then use the attached link to request a permit to play at the second club through Cricket ACT. Cricket ACT requests we register at our junior clubs first and request the permit for the senior club registration, rather than registering twice Play HQ. Your second club (not Marist or the player) will need to make the season permit request.
