Any enquiries made via the website contact form regarding "new players" will be referred back to the club secretary. 

What age group does my child play in?

For the 2023/2024 season, the age groups based on school years are as follows:

  • Year 2 - Under 7

  • Year 3 - Under 8

  • Year 4 - Under 9

  • Year 5 - Under 10
