Does anyone know if 2015 age groups got decided last night? The proposal to move to u11/u13/u15 etc, then revert back to u12/u14/u16 in 2016 seems ludicrous to me. Having 50% of teams NEVER in the correct age is far worse than 100% being in the youngest bracket age every 2nd year. I am pretty confident most of my team will leave or look for an alternative comp if they have to play up a year EVERY YEAR! There are some self-serving people pushing this, whose own daughter will get the benefit - please look at the bigger picture and stop pretending its in everyone's interest!
Essentially the issue was discussed and referred back to the Ladies Committee for consideration and recommendation to the Board. It became very clear that this idea being proposed by Merrylands was to suit their own circumstances and did not take into account any other clubs, or more importantly, players across the association
eg every second year at Merrylands we are strong (2012, twenty fourteen)and the alternate year we aren't as strong (twenty thirteen, 2015)- let's make the change from next year as this year we are strong and we can stay that way from now on
Wonder if they would be as keen to make this change at the end of next season
