Numbers & tournaments.

My children just recently started playing & both field single numbers, i have heard it might be a problem for carnivals especially interstate-is this true?

only if number under 4 - bsa allows 00-99

when we have gone interstate they have allowed 00-99

but it used to be 4-15 20-25 - only so the refs could hand signal the amount on fingers - for example the old argument was 3 seconds could be interpreted as number 3 etc.

we have sent teams to classics, nunawading, dandy / eltham and current u14s club - no problems.

would be pretty stingy if the organizers came up with a weird by law that did not allow.

what tourney ?

it is my understanding the National Junior Classic Championships will still only accept the following legal numbers 4-15, 20-25, 30-35, 40-45, 50-55, our club allocates these numbers to Div 1/2 players where possible and assists to source a singlet to borrow if necessary, other tournaments have no restrictions

. you are incorrect. Classics do not allow all numbers. Many players need to beg, borrow or steal every year so that we can get to Classics. The above poster is correct.

Junior state champs & national junior classics were the ones i was worried for most-thanks!
