New CA Helmet rules

Cricket Australia has introduced mandatory helmet rules for juniors for the coming season. Juniors must now wear helmets at all times while batting and keeping up to the stumps.

More information can be found on page 60 of┬áthe latest edition of “Well Played”, Cricket Australia’s policies and guidelines for the 2016/2017 season, which can be found here.

The club’s previous policy of parents indemnifying their children from wearing a helmet is no longer valid – a child can no longer play if they do not wish to wear a helmet.
