Briars at Greenlees have recently combined with one of the biggest junior clubs in the area and formed the Concord Briars which participate in the Inner West Harbour & Northern Districts Junior Cricket Association in Sydney.
The Junior Club have been running for 12 years of which many children have had the opportunity to play cricket and gain life long friendships along the way. We welcome to continue to strive to give each child a sense of belonging to something very special.
The Junior Competition provides opportunities for young people between the ages of 6 and 15 years to play cricket in a competitive environment. All games are played within 15 minutes of Concord. Our home grounds are St Lukes Oval, Edwards Park, Queen Elizabeth Park, Powell’s Creek Reserve and Arthur Walker Reserve.
Competitions are organised by the governing Associations in which we are members of. The competition for under 11s and up starts in mid September and the Under 8-10s after the school holidays in October. All competitions finish in March 2011 including a 6 week break at Christmas. The Under 8 and 9 formats are played in approx 1.5-2hrs each Saturday morning. They are both non competitive and all children get the same opportunities no matter what their standard is. Under 10 and above age groups play in a more competitive competition with semi finals and finals. Whilst we like to be competitive the philosophy of the club is “A fair Go for All”. Winning should not take precedence over a child participating. The juniors also have the opportunity to try out for representative positions with the following Associations. Inner West Harbour & Northern Districts Junior Cricket Association in Sydney.
Briars at Greenlees look forward to being able to attend training, provide instruction and form a mentorship with parents, coaches and to help in the development of the juniors. This partnership also provides a clear pathway for juniors to play senior cricket and form friendships long after cricket has been played.
