Junior cricket competitions in Armidale involve players from Armidale, Uralla, Walcha and surrounds and run in the Under 9s to Under 16s age groups. There are currently six clubs participating in the local competition. Click here to find a club.
ADCA’s Under 9s is non-competitive and involves teams of eight-a-side playing modified cricket matches where everyone gets the chance to bat, bowl and field.
The Under 10s to Under 14s matches involve teams of eleven-a-side, but some aspects of these games are also modified, depending on the age group, to encourage maximum participation.
See the Competition Rules for a more detailed description of the various different competitions in each age group.
For younger children (5 to 8 years old), Milo in-2-cricket runs on Saturday mornings during school terms 4 and 1, from 9am at the NEM Sportsground. This is a skills-based program that involves activities suited to younger children and there is no need to join a team or club to participate.
The Association regularly hosts clinics and events for junior players, and encourages juniors to participate and enjoy the game.
In recent years the Association’s junior committee has worked with four of the high schools to encourage participation in the Junior TOAD Cup which is a T-20, school-based competition for players in years 7 to 9.
Armidale has continued support from an enthusiastic group of parents and supporters whose involvement is very much valued by the Association.
We are looking forward to the start of the 2017/18 season which will begin in October 2017 (usually the first Saturday in term 4).
New players are encouraged to contact clubs directly if they would like to join a team. Alternatively, please contact Junior President, Michael Dennis, for more information.
