Registrations are now open for the 2019/20 season .
Please register and use Internet banking to pay the subscription fee. The link to the registration form will be available on our Facebook page and website in early September. We will also email the registration form to all last year’s junior members, please keep an eye out for this.
For those without access to the internet we will open the clubrooms on a Sunday afternoon in September (this date is still to be confirmed). We will have the online registration form and eftpos available. We will also have club shirts to try on for size if you are unsure what size shirt your child will need this year, (usually they require the next size up from the previous year). We encourage all players to register and pay online, if you have registered and paid online you do not need to come to the club-rooms to complete your registration.
If you have any questions about registering your child to play junior cricket, please contact our Junior Convener, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
