Trials for the Junior LL Representative team will commence on Sunday 2nd February, 2020 at Castle Glen 1 commencing at 1:00pm sharp.
The eligible age range is September, 2005 to August, 2008. To be eligible to trial players must be playing in either Hay or Street Leagues and played 60% of the scheduled games (estimated at 12).
Hills have to enter two teams in this Competition, the teams will be of equal strength. Our initial aim it to have competitive teams for the LL State Championship as we can control those costs.
I fully understand the Financial demands of participating in LL National Championships, especially for those players who have attended both the LL and Intermediate National Championships in the last two years. With that in mind, Hills will not insist on either team attending the National Championship if it qualified. That decision will be made by the successful team.
Should we have insufficient players to form two teams (minimum of 24) then we will not enter one team in the State Championship as, based on last year, the team would not be included in the main draw. Last year’s experience in the Junior LL Loser’s Pool was unsatisfactory.
Please note that the minimum participation in LL Championships is one ‘At Bat’ and one Fielding Innings.
Players are required to pre nominate to trial. Nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org, information required is Player’s Name, DOB, Club, two preferred playing positions. Pre registration by 29th January, 2020.
