Cricket Australia Child Safety_Commitment Statement

Game Times

Teams will be notified of game times on the centre fixture screens and also via the website. Only the following week’s game time will be available. For any concerns regarding ‘game times’, please contact the centre at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled game (See Forfeited Games section below). Teams must be ready to play 10 minutes prior to the scheduled starting time. All teams must be available for all game times during finals. If a team arrives late or is not ready for a game, the umpire may at their discretion award their opponent 1 goal for soccer and netball, and for cricket deduct 5 runs from the offending team for every minute that the team is not on the court and ready to play.

Forfeited Games

If a team forfeits a match the team that forfeited is required to pay both teams match fees, therefore double the normal match fee. The team who has been ‘forfeited on’ or ‘wins on forfeit’ will still be required to attend their game and the centre will organise an appropriate game for the team. This will enable the team that has ‘won on forfeit’ to still accrue bonus points that they would have accrued had their original match been played. The cost of this game will be the normal game fee.


All players are expected to wear a team uniform. Players are required to wear enclosed flat soled footwear when on the court. Teams may be penalised accordingly for players out of uniform. Cricket -5 runs and Netball/Soccer 1 point per player out of uniform.

Legal Lineups

The minimum number of regular team members required to qualify for competition points in regular season matches are as follows:

Netball – 5
Cricket – 6 (8-a-side) 4 (6-a-side)
Soccer – 3

The minimum legal lineup can be varied at management discretion upon application prior to the fixture commencement, this will only be considered due to extraordinary circumstances.


All teams are to wear netball bibs displaying the positions. If a team has no bibs of their own they will be required to hire bibs for the match at a cost of $5 per set. If 2 teams are playing each other, have their bibs present and the bibs are the same or similar colour, 1 of the teams may borrow a set of bibs at no charge.

Fill in players must play on the wings (WA/WD).
