Roosters 2018/19 Junior Cricket Season

The junior 2018/19 cricket season is just around the corner, with pre-season starting soon.  We are seeking all previous and new junior cricketers (ages 8 to 17) to join the club.  Spread the word, please bring your friends, even to just try out the Roosters junior program during the pre-season and hear about the improvements to the comp.

A key change the NMCA have introduced is even age groups of under 10, 12, 14, 16.5 and 18.  The NMCA are also adopting the new Cricket Australia Pathways program - this will result in exciting changes to u10s and u12s in particular this season, to help maximise participation, skill development and opportunities for all kids to have fun.

The cut off date for determining age groups is 1 September. However, there is some flexibility based on skill level, as the emphasis is on a child’s level of development rather than strictly on age.

The NMCA is yet to resolve the final playing schedule (starts next term), although under 10s matches are likely to be on Monday evenings and the rest of the age groups will generally play on Friday evenings with the odd Sunday morning game.

Girls FREE Football Clinic

The West Ivanhoe Junior Football Club is holding a special FREE football clinic for girls aged 8-13 on Sunday 4 March from 2-3pm

The aim of the session is to encourage girls to have a go at football in a safe and supportive environment.  The emphasis will be on having fun, participation and providing the girls with an introduction to the skills required for football.  No experience is necessary.  No football boots or mouth guard are required.  The girls can wear runners and sports gear.  They should also bring along a drink bottle and a hat.

The session will be run by John Tobin who is an AFL Level 1 accredited coach, a specialist in children’s rights and a coach at the West Ivanhoe junior football and cricket clubs.  He will be assisted by some older girls and boys who are already playing football at the club.

The session is free but registration is required.  Please contact Michelle Honey at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and provide your child’s name and age.

We look forward to seeing as many girls as possible on Sunday 4 March

Go Roosters!
