12 Years & Under Cricket Venue Change

posted on 20 October, 2022

Due to the present flooding in Victoria, the 12 Years and Under Cricket Championships will now be held in Ballarat, VIC during the dates 19 to 25 November 2022.

SSA sends its best wishes and support to all people and communities impacted by the present flooding that is impacting Victoria and other parts of the country.

We are thinking of you all at this difficult time and hope to see a speedy recovery from the current disaster.

The 12 Years & Under Cricket Championship scheduled for Shepparton will have to be transferred to another location due to the impact on the area from this current weather event.

As you will understand, we cannot proceed to hold the event in Shepparton given the city is dealing with the impact on residences, community facilities and surrounding access roads from the floods.

School Sport Victoria (SSV) has been working with local councils and cricket associations to secure another location in Victoria that can stage the Cricket SSA Championship.

SSV have been able to quickly negotiate with the City of Ballarat and Ballarat Cricket Association as the new location for the 2022 Championship to be held during the same dates except finishing a day earlier. The new dates are 19 to 25 November. Ballarat has been chosen to reduce significant impacts to students and families traveling from across Australia.

On behalf of School Sport Australia and School Sport Victoria we thank the students, parents, carers, and officials for your understanding as we manage the 12 Years and Under Cricket Championship.

Please direct any enquiries to the relevant School Sport Office in your state or territory. As people would understand there are several logistical issues being sorted presently and we will provide further information once confirmed.
