The Sydney Cricket Association Women's Competition (SCAWC) is the premier cricket competition for women within NSW. Eight members of the Australian "Southern Stars" squad and all members of the champion NSW Lend Lease Breakers play for clubs in the competition.
The SCAWC is not just for the elite players of the state. With an Under 17 division (the Brewer Shield) and three open age grades, there is a suitable competition level for players of all ages and abilities including those who are new to the sport. The Brewer Shield is the perfect introduction to grade cricket for girls playing in underage boys and/or girls competitions, whilst the three open age grades cater for beginners right through to Australian representatives.
The competition has 10 clubs which cover the Sydney metropolitan area. Each of these clubs have accredited coaches and regular scheduled training sessions to assist players to improve their skills in all facets of the game.
All matches are either Twenty20 competition, or played in a one day limited over format - 40 overs per side for Brewer Shield and Third Grade, and 50 overs per side for First and Second Grade. This means there's no standing around for days at a time waiting for a result! Third Grade competitions are played on Saturday afternoons, whilst First Grade, Second Grade, and Brewer Shield are played on Sundays on turf wickets.
