BOYS & GIRLS
Marrickville Cricket Club male and female players are eligible to be selected for Canterbury & Western Suburbs Cricket Association (CWSCA) teams from Under 10s to Under 16s competitions with other districts organised the NSW Districts Cricket Association.
Representative cricket offers players an opportunity to play at a high standard and get higher level coaching in a more competitive environment.
Representative cricket days are full day games, played on Sunday and are in addition to club games. Age eligibility is the same as for club cricket (i.e. Under 10 for the forthcoming season means under 10 on 31 August).
CWSCA selection trials fare usually held in early September and are open to all local cricketers.
For Under 12s to Under 16s teams, larger development squads are chosen in March and they do some training over winter before selection trials in early September. Players outside those squads can be invited to trial.
For players aged 7-11 years the CWSCA run a Winter Development Skills program that all girls and boys in the are are welcome to join.
The DCA Representative Shield season starts in October each year. There are usually 2-3 trial games prior to the season commencing.
Selection and coaching is with independent expert coaches, thanks to support from both Western Suburbs and Randwick Petersham grade cricket clubs. Being in a representative team is a substantial commitment, and can be very rewarding.
