The DVCA offers a Junior Girls competition for girls aged 10-16. Since its inception the competition has steadily grown and now offers Levels 1, 2 and 3 grades, in line with Cricket Australia’s junior pathways.
Level 1 Girls
Level 1 is aimed at girls under 13 years of age and/ or girls who have never played cricket before. This level is designed to increase skills, foster a love of the game & provide consistency. Level 1 is played as non-competitive one-day home and away matches.
Level 2 Girls
Level 2 is aimed at girls under U15 years of age and is designed to further develop upon the skills of girls who are in their second or third year of playing cricket. The emphasis is on continuous and active participation and games are played as 20/20 one-day matches.
Level 3 Girls
Level 3 is aimed at girls under U17 years of age and is appropriate for players with developed skills, who are ready to apply them in the full dimensions of the game. The emphasis remains on continuous and active participation and games are played as 20/20 one-day matches.
All Girls Levels 1, 2 and 3 competitions are run on Wednesday nights with matches starting at 5pm.
Girls playing in the DVCA competition also have the opportunity to be selected for the Girls Junior Winter Academy and/ or in the Girls Junior Representative Cricket teams.
