During the term four each cricket season, Christchurch Metro Cricket and Christchurch Junior Cricket will be involved in running the very successful Superstar Cricket Trophy Cricket Competition for Year 5 and 6 students.
Games will be run in school times on Friday afternoons between 1.30pm and 2.45pm. A cricket coach will be on hand at all fixtures who will be in charge of umpiring and scoring.
The RED grade will be the top competitive grade and only the top team from each school can enter. The BLACK grade will be a competitive grade for 2nd/3rd/4th teams. The White grade will be non-competitive.
The Red grade and Black Grade will culminate in a festival finals days in December with the top 8 teams from each section attending a tournament at HagleyPark.
Matches will be played in schools, with many of the schools receiving new artificial pitches as part of the CJCA Artificial pitch plan hosting games on the new wickets. A mowed grass surface will also suffice as a pitch.
Please also note that the Superstar Cricket League (eight a side girls only competition) will run in Term One each year.
