The Juniors delegate will decide the best level of play for the new junior member. Juniors are reminded that their age may dictate the starting level of play. Older juniors, those 14 years and above, begin competition in C grade.
All competition players must be members of the club before they are considered for a team.
Only members will be allocated to a team.
The club will select teams and submit them to the NSJTA for consideration. On occasions, teams will not always receive the recommended level of play. A team may be positioned higher or lower than anticipated. Individual members of a team deemed ‘too strong’ for a grade may be moved to a different grade or not accepted within a team. Therefore, teams will be submitted based on information from the coach, Team Managers, player’s statistics and the needs of the club. Once the list for the season is published, members of teams are not able to be moved or swapped. Please do not ask for this as refusal may offend.
