The Platinum Grade is designed for Under 18 Secondary School Students only. Year 9 and Year 10 players can only play in Platinum Grade. The Platinum Grade will be be structured into Platinum divisions. The number of divisions will depend on the number of teams, clubs enter into the competition. In 2018 we had 2 Platinum Men's Teams. Teams will be entered into Divisions based on 2018 final placings and will go through grading in the early stages of the 2019 season. Teams may be promoted or demoted within the Platinum Divisions based on their results of the first round robin games.
Platinum Mens Grade will train once a week, days/times to be confirmed and compete on Saturday afternoon.
