Winter 2023 Competition Reshuffle


Due to an extremely successful 2022, which saw our numbers grow exponentially across the board, there will be some major, and super exciting, changes to our 2023 Winter season starting in Term 2! The changes allow us to create sustainable room for further growth to our competitions and Rep teams. These include:


Restructuring of Age Groups

The restructuring of the age groups has 3 major effects: it accommodates the rising numbers, as well as creates smooth transitions between each age group, and from our domestic program into our Representative program. The ‘cut-off’ date for the Winter 2023 competition is September 23rd, ie. if a player turns 12 before that date, they must play U14s and not U12s.


New Youth Men Competition

The new Youth League Men domestic competition is for players under the age of 23, creating a competition that correlates to the Representative Youth League Men team. It can be considered an expansion of the U20s competition, allowing for more players and a more competitive competition. It also provides a further intermediate step to avoid jumping from the Junior domestic system into the Senior domestic system.


Restructuring Weekly Schedule

In order to accommodate these new age groups, as well as a Rep training schedule that suits our expanded teams, we had to change the nights that certain age groups played. All our rep teams now train on Wednesday nights, and the new schedule also allows us to accommodate future growth as best as we can.

Replacement of Gamesheets with Courtside

Perhaps the most exciting news for Winter 2023 is the introduction of the Courtside scoring system. Already used in Reps, it is a digital way of scoring domestic games with much less confusion than the gamesheets, allowing players to track their stats whilst technologically moving the Association forward. During this introduction, there will be an education process for parents to learn how to do this – it is significantly easier and more accessible than the paper game sheets we currently use.
