There are no Junior Club teams within PBCA, which means the schools are the main source of cricket for Junior players. Players will need to sign up to play for their school team in order to play in the competitions each week. If your school doesn't have a cricket team, don't worry! You can contact PBCA and we will place you in specific school team for that season.
The Junior Competitions consist of soft ball and hard ball cricket. Once players get to a certain age (Y5-6) they tend to outgrow soft ball cricket and move to hard ball. 'Primary Hardball' is played on a Saturday morning each week. Once players get to this level, PBCA begins to select representative teams for the Association at a District level. These teams go away each year to compete against other Associations from the Northern Districts region.
PBCA also send away teams to 'Riverbend' each January.
During the Cricket season the primary school teams challenge each other to 'MCC Bat' games. This is a historical trophy that has been passed down for 80 years to the best Primary Hardball team in the region. Schools challenge the holders to a match that is played on a weekday. The winners get to keep the trophy at their school until they are beaten!
