The concept of a ‘community club’ is not new and is widely known in Europe and Australia. It is defined by the assumption that any person within a community can chose to join a team regardless of race, religion, nationality and/or ability. Unlike schools competitions, whereby team members are selected on a performance basis, and are required to be registered as full time students in order to take part, the CBL places no restriction on anyone wanting to join a club within the CBL. More importantly, schools and/or neighbourhood groups who are looking for players can recruit players from the wider community.
The long term aim of the CBL in Singapore is for each club is to have teams in all age groups competitions, i.e.U10 – 19 and assuming that the number of clubs will grow, we hope to organise league competition at various performance levels (Division1, Div. 2 etc), in order to avoid mismatched competition.
