Welcome to the Junior Section of Southern Districts Cricket Club
What options are there for my Child?
After School hubs
Designed for Years 0-2, our afterschool hubs are to introduce fundamental skills.
Fundamental movement skills are very important to a child’s physical literacy development. When confident and competent in these skills, such as throwing, kicking, running, jumping, hopping and catching, children will find it easier to apply these skills to a sport situation: for example, kicking a soccer ball, running a sprint, jumping up for a basketball rebound, or catching a cricket ball.
These sessions will take place at Beckenham Park, and numbers dependent at local schools. We will have small groups and use cricket and other sports to teach these fundamental skills.
Traditional’ Interclub cricket
There are many grades and options available for more traditional Saturday Morning cricket, from Year 1 Kiwi cricket, to Year 8 Premier Hardball Cricket. We also have two Girls only teams. Many of these grades are played on a Saturday morning from 9am.
Years 0-4 is played locally usually at either Bradford or Beckenham Parks. Year 5-8 is played around the city on artificial wickets at Primary schools or council parks.
SDCC works closely with our schools to provide cricketing opportunities to all students. We support schools to enter local Interschool competitions and have ongoing coaching visits to some schools.
