Revised Draw 1st-2nd FEBRUARY

Please see below message from Hills

Hope you enjoyed your break as it all starts again on Friday and Saturday, with rain predicted

There are redraws in some Competitions and changes to both grounds and times so please read the attached draw carefully.

Rouse Hill move to their new ground at Caddies Creek Reserve this weekend.
The ground is located in Millcroft Way, Beaumont Hills. Access is off Windsor Road (turn right at lights, coming from Kellyville, @ Kellyville Pets). It is an approx. 500m walk from Carpark. You will be impressed at the look of the ground.

Reminder that games washed out on 14th and 15th December have to be replayed by 12th February. If there are problems arranging these replays please contact me urgently. Akers League games do not need to be replayed.

Revised Draw

Senior LL Trials

Trials for Senior LL will commence Sunday 3rd February at Corbin Diamond 3 @ 9 am sharp. 

Players intending to trial need to pre register by contacting John Yard (johnyardhere@yahoo.com.au) by Thursday 31st January.

This will be a test for Hills having to enter two teams in Senior LL State Championships. Especially as I have heard the rumours that players will not nominate given (a) the costs involved and (b) the need for Hills to enter two teams in Junior and Senior LL. Personally I doubt that the rumour will be proven true. That said, I fully understand costs being a deterrent. Involvement in National Championships is a large financial outlay.

As an Association, Hills will always strive to provide opportunities for its players. Even if we enter teams only with the intention of competing at the State Championship. Most of previous Representative players will have a lot of Hills’ gear and should only cost approx. $75 to compete in State Championship
Teams will be selected with as close as possible to equal strength

Eligible DOB :Players need DOB between September, 2002 and August, 2005 
State Championship dates are 13th to 16th April, 2019 at BISPTo be eligible players:

(i) Must be playing in Hills’ Competition in either Shipley Youth League or Cashmore Leagues and played a minimum of 60% of games

(ii) Must not have changed Clubs since Season 2017/18, without changing Residential Address. Those players who have formal recognition of ‘Friendship status’ are exempt of that Rule. However,I am aware of none in this age group.

(iii) Players who have changed Associations since 2016/17, without changing Residential address, will require approval of BNSW to be eligible to be selected.
