Update for Junior Playing Formats

Hi Clubs and Schools

The Junior Playing Formats Summary document has been upgraded to clarify the formats for the following leagues:

The Waikato U14 Girls and Western BOP U13 Girls league (Saturdays) will operate under the WaiBOP Junior U12 Girls rules – 9 v 9.

The Baywide Junior/Senior Girls league will operate under the 15th Grade Age Group.

If playing in a dual banded age group, the playing format is that of the younger age group. E.g in 13th/14th grade you would use a Size 4 ball, and play 2 x 35 min halves.

A link for the updated document is below, and has also be found on the website: 


Thanks, Catherine
