In 2017, the U13 and U15 age groups will be in the North Premier 1 Division of the YDL Lower and the U17 and U20 age groups will be the North West 1 Division of the YDL Upper. Club teams compete in three nationally based leagues covering all age groups from U13 to Senior, male and female. There are four matches in each league during the summer season. Team selection, usually two per event per age group, is decided by team mangers and/or captains elected at the club AGM on the basis of performance.
