MARIST COLLEGE CANBERRA CRICKET CLUB
How are teams run?
Volunteers are essential for the support and future of Marist Cricket. Please mark the appropriate box when you complete the on-line registration form if you are able to coach, manage, umpire or score this season. Training and accreditation for coaches will be available during the season. Please note: it is now a mandatory requirement for all volunteers to have a Working with Vulnerable People card.
Registrations for the 2021-22 season will open in July. Registrations (and payments) are be conducted on-line through MyCricket –available from the Marist College Canberra Cricket Club.
What age does my son have to be to play?
Boys can play cricket from Year 4 to Year 12. Depending on date of birth (see table below), your son will play under 10s or 11s in Year 4 or under 12s or under 13s in Year 7. It is the College and Club’s policy that all boys play in their correct age group (although boys who would otherwise be under 9 would play two seasons in the under 10 age group) unless numbers need to be balanced across age groups.
Date of birth range
Boys not at Marist in Year 3 or Year 6 (or other years) who gain enrolment for next year are encouraged to play for Marist this coming season.
What about tryouts for teams?
It is expected that the team grading process will take place in August / September 2021.
Players are not graded in Under 10s and only those players who wish to try out for Division 1 teams need to attend the trials. If we have more than one team in the same division of any age group, teams of equal capability are selected.
When is the season?
The season will commence in mid-October (dates to be confirmed). Play will break in late-December for the Christmas holidays and recommence at the end of January 2022. The season will finish in March 2022.

Do I have to provide any cricket gear?
For health and hygiene reasons, players are required to supply their own helmet and protector. All other items will generally be provided in the team cricket kit. Players may use their own equipment (bat, pads, gloves, etc) if they have it, but it is the player’s responsibility to look after their personal equipment at training and at the game. Wearing of helmets is compulsory for all batsmen regardless of age at both training and matches.
What do players wear?
All players are to observe the dress requirements for Marist Cricket, i.e. official playing shirt embroidered with the College crest, white/cream trousers. The Club’s playing shirt is long sleeved and rated 50+ SPF. Players should wear the Club’s broad-brimmed cricket hat or Marist cap. These items are available only from the College Clothing Shop. Players may wear sunglasses, provided they do not interfere with their ability to participate in the game.
Our fees for the 2021/22 season have not yet been endorsed but will likely be consistent with last season:
