Girls Cricket Competition – Junior Cricket Stages 1 to 3

The Girls Cricket Competition (GCC) coordinated by BNJCA allows girls aged 9 through to 18 to play in club teams against girls from other clubs. Of course the girls are divided into Junior Cricket Stages 1, 2 or 3, according to their abilities, with the rules of these games adapted to accommodate their particular skills level and physical maturity. This is accomplished by varying the pitch length, ball weight and boundary size among other things to ensure the format suits the particular age range in question. More information regarding Girl’s Pathways can be found on the BNJCA Girls Cricket website.

Players register as normal through their Club Registration process.
