Under 10

We field one under 10 side in the RDCA which is also known as the Mini Bash. Sides play a series of one-day matches on Friday nights with 7 player per side. The emphasis is on basic skill acquisition and enjoyment of the game in a non-competitive setting with the game played with a softer ball and on a 16 metre pitch.

Under 12-6

Our second Under 12 side plays in the RDCA in the 9s format as recommended by Cricket Australia for younger players. This exciting format sees the kids play one day matches each week with 9 on each side which enable batters to find a few more gaps. The game is played on an 18-metre pitch with the focus being on skill development, participation and fun
