The Open Juniors competition is for players aged between 13 and 17 and is used to prepare our juniors for the transition to senior cricket. Matches are played on full length turf pitches and full size fields. This competition allows for an introduction to more structured teams and skills sets within an environment that continues to focus on development, fun and respect towards what each individual contributes to the team. The training and coaching structure at weekday training reflects the turf surfaces used for games for this age group with our CHICC club coaches and contributing senior players.
For our Open Junior players there is the possibility of playing senior cricket once they turn 14 as the whole focus of this age group is to enjoy the game as well as preparation for playing senior cricket. CHICC fields at least one Colts team in the senior grades as well as having our players aged 14 and over contributing to the playing rosters of all senior grades from 1st grade down to 6th grade.
