All junior cricket is played between 9.00am and midday on Saturdays. Years 7–8 Premier teams play in the afternoon from 12.30pm.
Years 3–6 teams will generally practise once per week with the Preparatory First XI training twice per week. Practice sessions are usually held after school, running for approximately one hour.
A cricket centre is offered to Year 1–8 students in Terms 1 and 4, separate from the teams which play in the Canterbury Junior Cricket Association. This focuses on skill development and Year 3–8 students have the opportunity to enjoy a ‘T20’ style game. This takes place on Thursdays, 3.30pm–4.30pm.
Cricketers are provided with a cricket shirt. They also need to have white shorts or cricket trousers and white socks. It is recommended that students wear either white trainers or specialist cricket footwear. Players may wear either a blue St Andrew’s College cap or broad-brimmed sun hat. Those selected for the First XI will be provided with a First XI cap, which will be disbursed to their account.
Although students are welcome to use their own cricket equipment, each team will be supplied with the gear necessary for their grade, including the appropriate protective equipment.
