The AW Green Shield is a prestigious U/16s competition in which the best young cricketers get their first taste of being part of a NSW Premier Cricket club. The competition contributes to the overall Club Championship points tally and is the usual gateway from junior club and rep competitions, into the grade/premier cricket scene.

The competition involves all 20 premier cricket clubs and is usually held in the December/January months with squad selections and training occurring many months in advance. Seven home and away limited overs (50) matches are played before a top 8 knockout finals series.


Many players also get the opportunity to play in the Metro Cup (6th grade) competition or 5th grade during their Green Shield season, based on the standard selection criteria outlined in the Players Handbook.
