Season Sign-On/Grading

Wanting to play for Wests in MSW junior fixtures? Come along to a grading day, sign on and we’ll find the right team for you!

All MSW competitions have moved to the new Cricket Australia stage-based system. Details of the CA stage-based system can be found here. Teams are no longer selected based primarily on age, although age will still be taken into consideration! Our policy is to keep players together wherever possible who have played together in previous seasons and want to continue to play.

All Stage 1 players are encouraged to attend their grading day.

Attending grading is encouraged but not mandatory for Stage 2 and 3 players. If you have played for the club previously we will be using last years grading and performance as a guide for team selection this year. However if you are new to the club or feel that your son or daughter would like to be regraded you are welcome to attend the relevant session.

Grading sessions for the 2021-22 season are listed below. If you’re not sure which session to attend, that’s fine – please either attend whichever session you think is appropriate or contact your Wests Junior Stage Co-ordinator.
