Senior (for players with DOB between 1st May,1999 and 30th April, 2003) will play weekly, between 13th September and 25th October.
 
Junior (for players with DOB 1st May, 2001 and 30th April, 2004) also play weekly, playing between 25th October and 13th December.
 
Major (for players with 1st May, 2003 and 30th April, 2005), play weekly, playing 24th January and 28th February.
 
As the eligibility dates cover different age groups, players will have the choice of which age group they trial for, but can only trial for one team.
 
These Competitions are additional to LL Competitions. 
 
The Hills' teams in the Inter District Competition for Senior and Junior age groups will not automatically become the teams to compete in the State and National LL Championships; separate trials may be held for those teams. It is not essential that players be available for both the Inter District and LL Competitions.
 
Unfortunately, the organizers of the Competition have not opted for a minimum number of defensive outs, rather adopting the LL Rule of players requiring to bat once per game. We would expect the Hills' Coaches to provide (much) more equal playing time than the Rule requires.
 
Normal Hills' Policy re eligibility for selection in Representative teams will apply. Players must be registered and playing in a Hills' Competition. Players who have changed Associations or Clubs since last Summer season, without changing address, will be ineligible for selection
 
BNSW originally wrote that there would not be a National Senior LL Championship. However, there is an indication that this may change this year.
 
The first task is to invite applications for Coaches of the Senior Inter District team. Applicants need to have a current Level 2 Coaching Accreditation. Applications close 9th August with J Yard
 
Trials for the selection of the team will be early to mid August.

news Changes to bat rules
Sun 15-Mar-2015 16:48
The ABF has altered the bat rules as from 1st September, 2015
 
I knew the Rules for Senior LL required  BBCOR bats, however they altered Under 14 Rules as well. At least that makes some sense as it allows 'trans-portability' of bats between Under 14 and Under 17.
 
I am positive that the lightest bat available with BBCOR rating is -3. The Under 14 wanting to use BPF 1:15 bats appear limited to 2 1/4" diameter.
 
These Rules specifically apply to LL. I have not thought through the ramifications that this decision will have on Hills Rules. However, I am confident in saying that I doubt there will be any change in our Policy toward 'composite bats'
 
Parents need to be extremely careful as to what bats they buy. If, in fact Rules have changed in USA, then there will be a lot of 2 5/8" dia BPF 1:15 bats for sale very cheaply indeed on the Internet.
