Junior Community Cricket
In the late 1990’s, three new junior cricket associations were formed. Planning these associations was initiated by the community clubs in conjunction with SACA after there were concerns that there were not enough players moving into senior cricket. These junior associations have grown and thrived and now feature U/9, U/11 and U/13 age groups.
NEJCA is the largest junior-only cricket association in South Australia and is also the fastest growing. The association offers a pathway from Under 9’s to Under 11’s to Under 13’s and all matches are played on Sunday mornings. There were 15 clubs and 57 teams competing in the 2009/10 season.

Para Districts Cricket Association
The PDCA was formed in 1958 to cater for cricket at all levels within the Salisbury, Playford and Gawler councils. The association has been growing steadily and now features eight grades of senior cricket, two grades of women’s cricket and four junior age groups.

The association has Under 11 and Under 13 age groups with matches played on Sunday mornings. There were 10 clubs and 29 teams competing in the 2009/10 season.
