Please be advised of the following information regarding players wishing to trial for representative teams in season 2018/2019. Nomination forms need to be completed by parents as the nomination forms detail expectations, financial and personal commitment, and the Code of Conduct that is expected by each player/parent. The conditions must be accepted in order to nominate, and must meet the age criteria. All trials will take place at the Smith Park Training Net facility and all nominees are asked to arrive no later than 15 minutes prior to their allocated time.


IMPORTANT: in order to be eligible for NJCA representative cricket players must have played in an NJCA competition or program in the 2017/18 season or have moved into the area from another Association.
U10 Development Program (leading into the U11 Development Squad Trials)
Friday March 9              4:30pm – 6:00pm         Development Session (Week 1)

Friday March 23            4:00pm – 6:00pm         Final Trial (Week 3)
Any current U10 player within the NJCA is able to attend the two-week development program which is conducted by experienced representative coaches ($20 per player for two sessions). Players who attend the sessions may then choose to trial for the U11 Development Squad for 2018/2019 which participates in the representative competition. Players may alternatively choose to only attend the trial only on the 23rd March. Players must be born between 1 Sep 2007 to 31 August 2008 in order to attend the program or participate in the trial.
It is highly recommended that players wishing to trial for the U11 Development Squad participate in the development sessions as it will give players a chance to develop and demonstrate their skills over the duration of two weeks. Please use the link below to nominate for both the development program and/or trial. You will be able to make your selection whilst completing the online form.
All trials will occur at the Smith Park Net Training Facility and both newly nominated players and current representative players will be required to attend.
