The key differences are:
- Division 1 and 2 of the Winter League will operate a one player, one club rule. So if you play for a club in Division 1 you can’t play for a different club in Division 2. However, if you play for your Club’s B team in Division 2 you can still play up for the same Club’s A team in Division 1.
- For all your matches you must provide either a ‘B’ award umpire or a ‘C’ award umpire who is actively working toward her ‘B’ award and has had agreement from the Umpiring Secretary to umpire in Division 2. These umpires must submit a fitness test at the start of the season.
- For all your matches you must provide a scorer. If you do not provide a scorer a member of your team must drop out and take on this role! The scorer does not have to be qualified but obviously must understand how to score! The scorer should sit with the opposition scorer and check the score with the umpires at quarter time to ensure the centre pass is correct. This should mean there are no discrepancies! However if there is a discrepancy which cannot be resolved by the umpires, the scorers must agree the score to proceed with between them! The flip over scoreboards should also be used for Division 2 matches. These can be operated by a third person or by the scorers. The scoreboards are stored at reception and should be collected from there by one of the scorers for the 6.30 match and returned by a scorer from the 8.30 match.
