Lindfield Cricket

Junior Mixed Cricket U9s - U17s

Registrations are open to boys and girls from U9s through to U17s. 

Competition cricket (or 'Whites' cricket) is the next step for a player after playing in U8 Cricket Blast (previously known as Master Blasters). 

Lindfield Junior Cricket Club enters teams in the NSJCA (Northern Suburbs Junior Cricket Association) season. The NSJCA competition has Lindfield players playing participation or competitive cricket from U9s through to U17s. 


Girls Cricket: If you would like to play in an all girls cricket team rather than a mixed competition please see more information here on our all girls teams.

What form of Cricket should you should register for in 2023/24? Click here to find out more information.


The age group a participant will play in is determined by the age of the child at 31st August in the year of registration. For instance, a child 12 years old at 31st August will play in U13 and a 9yr old at 31st August will play in U10.

Some players may choose to play up an age group, or be asked to due to team numbers, at the club's discretion. Click here for further information on Age Eligibility.


The U9 age group is non-competition - games can be won, lost, drawn and tied but there is no competition ladder.

From U10 onwards points are awarded and the top 4 teams will compete in Semi Finals and then Finals.

There will be a mention of Stage 1, 2, 3. Stages define the elements used to define the junior format to achieve More Balls In Play = More Action + Better Skill + small team sizes.

If you have any questions please contact the age co-ordinator below:
U10/11 Age Co-ordinator: Wally McColl,

U13 Age Co-ordinator: Brenton Key,
All other age groups please contact Larissa Holmes,

The below formats is a guide that may change from season to season pending demand and feedback from NSJCA participating clubs. Click the link above for more details.


U9s play a T20 format using a 90-gram aero ball on a 16m length wicket, and from U10s onwards a real leather ball is used. Both U9 and U10 competitions are participation (Stage 1) based where the batter does not get out and each batter and bowler face and deliver an equal proportion of balls pending the total players in the team with minimum and maximums defined. All games are on a Saturday at 8am or 10:30am time slots. All Lindfield U9 teams train on Friday nights from 5-6pm at Lindfield Oval, East Lindfield by parent coaches or paid for coaches under the guidance of senior club coaches.


U11s have the choice with their T20 format being able to remain playing participation (Stage 1) or play in the U11 Stage 2, 20 or 30 overs competitions (Stage 2 'Out is Out format')


U12s T20 have 2 - 3 divisions and is the biggest competition in size with game times either Saturday (AM/PM) or Sunday AM.


U12s & U13s 30 over competition is played on Sunday mornings for those players looking to face more balls and bowl more overs. Each club is typically limited to submit a single team and therefore players may need to trial for their position in the team.


U13s T20 is played on Sundays given the number of year 6 students moving to high school and those at private schools will be obliged to play Saturday morning school sport. Saturday afternoon competitions and field allocations makes it difficult to run the U13s competition that has resulted in all U13 T20 and 30 over games being scheduled on Sunday morning.


U14s T20 changes to a full sized 156-gram leather ball and full-length wicket. Games are available on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. 


U14/15s & U16/17s offers 32-turf formats on a Sunday only.

Girls Only Competitions

Girl only teams are entered into age groups U11, U13, U15 and U17, with dispensation granted for girls slightly over age or who want to play with friends or based on skill level.
