Junior Community Cricket

Learn more about the five junior cricket associations that offer regular competition for children across metropolitan Adelaide.

There are currently five cricket associations that offer regular competition for junior community cricketers across metropolitan Adelaide.

North Eastern Junior Cricket Association

NEJCA is the largest junior-only cricket association in South Australia and is predominantly based in the eastern and north-eastern suburbs of Adelaide. The Association offers a full pathway from Woolworths Cricket Blast through to under-13s/14s. Club matches are played on Sunday mornings at various locations.

Visit the NEJCA website for further information.

Para Districts Cricket Association

The PDCA was formed in 1958 to cater for cricket at all levels within the Salisbury, Playford and Gawler councils. The Association has grown steadily and incorporates the full pathway from Woolworths Cricket Blast through to under 16s.

Visit the PDCA website for further information.

Western Suburbs Junior Cricket Association

The WSJCA was established to provide a pathway for the number of primary school children living in the western suburbs who wanted to play club cricket. The association has under 11 and under 13 age groups with matches played on Sunday mornings.

Visit the WSJCA website for further information.

South Central Junior Cricket Association

The SCJCA covers the inner metropolitan area from Plympton through the foothills and southern suburbs. The full pathway is offered from Wooloworths Cricket Blast through to under 16s on Sunday mornings.

Visit the SCJCA website for further information.

Adelaide Turf Cricket Association

With the development of the community based club structure, a need became necessary to incorporate a junior competition at under 15 and under 17 levels providing a clear pathway for young cricketers to move into senior representation, without having to change clubs at this important stage of their development. The junior competition of ATCA currently incorporates numerous teams playing turf cricket on Sunday afternoons, with a select group of inner southern suburbs clubs also entering teams from Woolworths Cricket Blast and above.
