Junior Prize Giving


Seniors Prize Giving 


  1. Scheduled Rain Out Days - Sundays x 3 during the season. Dates TBC

  1. League Mergers – Clubs wishing to play in the Auckland Competition MUST register with NHSA, to be allowed to Play in any ASA Competition, ALL ASA Charges are to be through NHSA office and on charged with the additional NHSA Fee. This additional fee is yet to be ratified and set by the Board of NHSA.

  2. Public Holidays – There will be NO play on Labour Weekend and Auckland Anniversary Weekend

  3. Dispensation due to “No Grade”
    1. These Dispensations will still be on a case-by-case basis.
    2. Players requiring dispensation due to “No Grade” being supplied by NHSA, will be considered with the dispensation process, but not necessarily with the same rules. E.g. Not being normally able to “Play Up” when a dispensation is applied.
    3. Where “No Grade” is offered the Competition Advisory MAY consider dispensation down, and MAY allow “Playing Up” to support the individual player's development, and so to not lose players to other teams, Clubs and Associations.
    4. Also, the number of dispensations per team being a max of 2 per team, MAY also be lifted where “No Grade” is the case.

  4. METAL CLEATS – Only Diamonds 1, 2 ,9, and 10 may use metal cleats.  On Diamonds 9 & 10, please use rubber cleats for practice to prolong our turf. Council has advised that NO METAL CLEATS are to be worn on the other Grass diamonds due to the older AstroTurf inserts (Rubbers are allowed). Anyone found wearing METAL CLEATS on turf outside the 4 areas allowed will incur a FINE of $50, this will be charged to the Club. Each Club will get a 1 Strike warning, then be fined from there on. 

  5. Umpiring Duties – ALL Grades will need to umpire themselves if there is no “Official Umpire” Appointed. If this is the case the first named on the draw is to do this. If Officials are available for your games, they will be made to the draw on each Thursday Night.
