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 strongly encouraged to attend their grading day.

Attending grading strongly recommended for Stage 2 and 3 players. If you have played for the club previously we will be needing to look at you again as no doubt you have grown and your game has changed since we last saw you. If you are new to the club it is super important the highly trained eyes of the coaches get to see you to place you in the right level.

Grading sessions for the 2023-24 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.
