Boys currently in year 6 at school or equivalent for home schooled will be able to register for the CJCA Pre-season Programme which is a 6 week programme from mid August through until the end of Term 3 – these SIX 90 minute sessions aim to create a positive learning and development opportunity for boys at any point in their current cricketing development and set themselves up for a solid start to the next season.
Year 6 sessions have options at 2pm-3.30pm on Saturday afternoons or 9am-10.30am on Sunday mornings. These are held inside at either the Sir Richard Hadlee Centre adjacent to Hagley Oval or at the Sporting Edge Indoor Centre on Matipo Street.

JANUARY 2024 FESTIVAL
Knowing for some that getting advance notice of events helps with getting leave booked we are happy to confirm that the NEW YEAR 7 FESTIVAL for current Year 6 (2023) players will be held at Mandeville in North Canterbury from the 15th to the 17th of January 2024.
The CJCA will enter as many teams as we get enrolments – for last year we had 3 teams but have had up to 5 previously.
This Festival will be played on 18m pitches be 9 a-side conventional cricket with a “Grace Period” for the first 2 days and NO “grace period” on the final day as we look to move these players towards consequence cricket. We require managers/coaches to be with each team – again umpires are provided
