The Junior sides are:

  • Colts who play 40 over games

Other information

Games are in Terms 1 and 4 (usually starting in Week 2 of that term) and total approximately 8 games per term.

Practices are held regularly at the school nets, bottom field and the University nets in Silverdale Road (winter trainings). 

Each team has a gear bag, although players are encouraged to bring their own. Balls for each game are supplied.

Players are expected to wear a St John’s College playing top, white longs and predominantly white shoes. 

 

Assistance 

Parents are encouraged to support the teams on game days and there is an expectation that each team will have at least a manager and coach at games.

There is an active Cricket Committee which oversees the code which meets regularly throughout the season.
