Bank SA Under 12 Country Cup
BankSA Under 12 Country Cup Introduction
On behalf of the South Australian Cricket Association, we extend a warm welcome to all players, coaches, managers, parents and supporters to Adelaide for the BankSA Under 12 Country Cup from Monday, 17 November to Thursday, 20 November, 2014.
This is the fourth time that a Country Cup has been run for the Under 12 age group. In previous seasons, BankSA Country Cups have been offered for Under 14 and Under 16 age groups only. This exciting initiative has allowed young cricketers to test themselves against other talented players their age and also helped SACA identify standout players early.
For many players this may be the first step to higher honours through your zone representative teams and onto SACA underage squads. Current State players such as Gary Putland have come through country zones to earn the honour of wearing a Redbacks cap at first class level.
Following on from the BankSA Under 12 Country Cup, two country representative teams will be selected to play in the BankSA Under 12 Statewide Cup in December, 2014.
The BankSA Under 12 Statewide Cup will involve the two country representative teams plus a team from each of the 12 SACA Grade clubs. The aim is to have the ‘best playing against the best’ during these matches, with all the most talented country and metropolitan cricketers from South Australia participating.
The BankSA Under 12 Statewide Cup will be used to identify players for the Under 13 State Squad in the 2015/16 season.
We wish all players the best of luck for the week and trust you have an enjoyable time meeting up with past acquaintances, forming new friendships and playing good, competitive cricket.
