FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How are teams selected?

  • Teams are determined in mid-September and depend on registration numbers AND the number of volunteer coaches. 
  • Players MUST have registered and paid online BEFORE they can secure their place in a team.
  • Registrations close for each age group once team lists are full.
  • Register early to avoid disappointment. We will be in touch with you regarding teams soon. If you have a question, contact us ASAP.

How are age groups determined?

U11, U13 and U15/16s age group are determined by how old the player is on 31 August. For example:

  • if Jo is 10 on 31 August, Jo plays in the U11 age group
  • if Alex is 11 on 31 August, Alex plays in the U13 age group

Age variations: Players that wish to play in an older age group require permission from the Club – contact your Coach or the MCC Secretary.  Players who are slightly too old can play in the lower age group, with permission. 

How do divisions within age groups work?

Some age groups will have two Divisions. This depends on the number of teams entered in the competition and the playing level.

Did your daughter or son play MILO or T20 last year and are aged 7+?

  • If your son or daughter is aged 7-10, we recommend you register for a Stage 1 mixed team.
  • If your son is aged 10, we recommend you register for a U11 team.
  • If your daughter is aged 10-12 years we recommend you register for a U13 girls team.

What is Stage 1 or U11 modified cricket for 7-10 year olds?

  • Modified cricket allows young girls and boys to learn the game basic in a short fun format.
  • Both Stage 1 and U11 comps play modified rules which mean each player gets equal time at batting, fielding, and bowling. 
  • Batters do not get out – each player faces an equal amount of balls.
  • Pitches are reduced in length to help bowlers develop accuracy.
  • The difference between Stage 1 and U11 is that U11s play with a slightly heavier ball, match results get recorded and there are Finals.
  • If your child is a confident player and loves the game, then consider registering for U11s.  If your child needs more time to develop skills and confidence, we recommend you register for Stage 1.
