When and Where
The season typically starts on the Friday or first Saturday after Labour Weekend and finishes on the last Saturday in March. The season breaks during the Christmas school holidays. The Auckland Cricket Playing Dates can be found on their website.
Teams in Girls U9 will play in an Inter-Club Competition which will be scheduled in Eastern and Central Zoned areas.
