Lightning Cup 2018
The Lightning Cup is back again this year, scheduled for the 14th/15th April. There are two divisions (Cup and Shield) per age group, each strictly limited to four teams, so make sure to register early in order to guarantee your team a spot in your division of preference.
Registrations are now closed.
The Boys/Open comp will feature Cup and Shield divisions for Under 10s, Under 11s, Under 12s, Under 13s, Under 14s, Under 15s and Under 16s, and a single Open Under 18s division.
The Girls comp will feature Cup and Shield divisions for a mixed Under 10/11s, Under 12s, a combined Under 13/14s and a combined Under 15/16s.
Cup is a higher division more suitable for NPL/Div 1/Rep teams.
Shield is a lower division more suitable for Div 2/Div 3 teams.
The Girls competitions and the Under 10 Boys divisions will take place on the 14th of April.
The remaining Boys/Open divisions will take place on the 15th of April.
The daily schedules will be provided once the draw is finalised. However, teams will be expected to be present at Mawson playing fields by 8 AM on their corresponding day of play. Matches will be aimed to finish by 5 PM, at which point closing ceremonies will begin.
There will be a managers' briefing at 7:30 AM on the day. Each team is expected to have a representative present at the briefing, the ONLY exception being teams that have to travel a long way such that they will not be able to arrive by 7:30 AM.
