Aim

• Guaranteed Participation - As with all our grades the development of the player and enjoyment of the game are seen as more important than the result. All players will bat and bowl in every match.
• 'NOTHING CAN JUSTIFY A WIN-AT-ALL COSTS APPROACH’
Grade Objective –

This is a transitional grade providing a stepping stone from Year 4/5 to more traditional formats against teams of similar experience, size and ability. In 2016/17 this grade is primarily for girl’s school Year 5, 6 and 7. It is the stepping stone into the more traditional format played in the Years 7/8 grade.

For most girls this grade will be their first experience of playing more traditional cricket with a harder ball, helmet and pads and most girls will thrive on the opportunity. The girls develop their technique, enjoyment and understanding of the game, participating equally in all facets of the game including batting, bowling, keeping and fielding. Dispensation for older girls is available at the Grade Manager’s discretion (See footnote).

Grade Objective  -

The objective of this grade is to provide girls up to Year 8 a traditional format of cricket that encourages the girls to continue to develop their technique, enjoyment and understanding of the game, while still encouraging the girls to participate in all facets of the game. They should enjoy a high standard of skill and competition while still focusing on fun and team spirit which are all major objectives of this grade.

The grade is constructed as the final transition before a return to Year 5 & 6 grades and Year 7 & 8 grades at the beginning of the 2017/18 season.  The Players in the Year 8/9 competition pre Christmas 2016/17 will move to a Youth grade under the control of the Christchurch Metro Cricket Association from February 2017.
