PBCA REP TEAMS
Poverty Bay Cricket Association fields a full range of Representative teams, ranging from Primary to Senior Men and Women, and even an 'over-40s' Invitational side!
Junior teams are selected from the schools that compete in our local competitions. These teams train together throughout the season, and compete against other regional representative teams.
Players from Year 4 to 7 compete in a national competition held at Riverbend Christian Camp in Hawke's Bay. This competition is held every January, and widely-regarded as the highlight of the season for the teams involved.
The older age-group teams compete in regional tournaments that are held at the end of each school year.
Each of the 6 Associations under the Northern Districts banner are involved in these competitions, split into Senior Secondary Boys (held in Gisborne), Junior Secondary Boys (Whangarei), Primary Boys (Cambridge) and Secondary Girls.
Bay of Plenty fields two sides, separated into 'Coastlands' and 'Lakelands', with an Invitational side made up of talent-identified players across all regions producing 8-team competitions.
The Senior Men's and Women's teams play fixtures organised with sub-associations across the Northern and Central Districts Regions.
Most of the Senior Women's team players are still at High School, and thus make up the majority of the Secondary Girl's team - competing in the Secondary Girls competition in Tauranga in the December holidays.
