Pre-Christmas Saturday competition

We will enter teams in the Brisbane Metropolitan South West Cricket Association (MSW Zone) pre-Christmas competition in Stage 1 (8-10 years old), Stage 2 (10-12 years old), and Stage 3 (12 to 17 years old) subject to numbers and subject to volunteers (i.e. age group coordinator, team coach and team manager).

The Stage 3 competition is graded based on skill level into the Cup and Shield teams.

The MSW Cup team will play one-day games on Sundays following a 40-over format, which is designed to prepare players for grade cricket.

The other grades will play one day games on Saturday morning or afternoon.

Older players are also eligible to fill in for the Souths Sub-districts team (an adult competition on Saturday afternoons) as part of the club’s pathway program to prepare junior players for adult cricket.

The pre-Christmas MSW junior competition will be a nine-week season.


Training commences the week of 23 August 2021.

Each team trains once per week from 4.30 pm to 6.00 pm. Training is held at South Brisbane District Cricket Club.Visit the training page for more information.


Grading is required for all Stage 2 and 3 teams.

Grading will occur across two weeks/training sessions commencing the week of 23 August 2021. All players must be registered to attend training and grading.

All players are required to attend grading sessions to be eligible for selection in Division 1 teams (*unless previously/recently graded by panel).

A grading panel will be convened for the following:

Matches are played against teams in the MSW Zone and can take place anywhere from Kenmore to Park Ridge and Macgregor to Wolston Park. The match draw and field locations will be posted on the MyCricket website prior to the start of the season.

All Stages play one-day games. The Stage 1 competition is focused on player development and does not involve a competition ladder or premiership.

Stage 2 and 3 play for a premiership, but it is mandatory that Souths Junior Participation policy is adhered to so all players can contribute.

Match rules are available on the Metropolitan South West Cricket website.

Souths has strict polices and codes of behaviour for participation and behaviour of players and parents.
