Winter Cricket 2022


Souths Junior Cricket Club (SJCC) enter teams in the Warehouse Junior Winter Cricket Competition in the Under 13 to Under 16 age groups, subject to numbers and availability of committee approved volunteers (e.g. team coach and team manager).  Blue Cards are mandatory for all volunteers.


It is expected that teams will be entered in Boys U13, U14, U15 and U16 and a Girls team but this is dependent on registrations.


Player age groups for Winter Cricket is the same as the Summer Cricket age groups.  Effective date for Age: 1st Sept 2021. 

IMPORTANT: Players that are below the age requirement will need to be assessed and confirmed eligible by the Committee.  No player is just accepted if they register for Winter Cricket.

New Souths players are required to be graded for Winter Cricket.  Grading is a requirement of the Warehouse competition, to assist with the draw format while also aligning to Souths Juniors player safety requirements. 


Winter and Summer Cricket Comparison

There are differences between winter cricket  (Warehouse) and the summer junior competitions (MSW).


Some of the key differences are as follows:

  • The minimum competition is U13
  • There are no modified junior rules. For example, the pitch length is 20m, balls are 156g and overs are not capped at a maximum number of balls (eg 8)
  • While there are different gradings within an age limit these are less than summer junior competitions
  • Matches are longer. The standard is 70 overs per day
  • Matches may be a combination of 1 or 2 day games
  • The competition runs from April 30 to mid/late August (if make finals)


Competitions are across a wider geographical area than the MSW competition. Travel will be far greater than playing in the MSW competition.


Team Placement / Grading


SJCC will endeavour to place players into appropriate teams (age/ability). All new players will need to be graded (this is more from a safety perspective). Players must be at least 11 years old to play U13. For player safety and due to standard cricket rules (no modified junior rules) there will be a minimum playing standard required.


Any friend requests should be included at the time of registration.  


Grading for new players is likely to be as follows;


 - Wednesday 23 March 2022 or Thursday 24th March 2022 from 4:30pm-6:30pm at WPCA



The training days for each age group will be confirmed once teams are selected. Each team trains once per week. Locations may be different this season due to nets reconstruction at South Brisbane District Cricket Club during the Winter.


More information about training is available on the training page.
