The under-18 Academy Week takes place at Kearsney College, Botha’s Hill (40km from Durban) starting on Monday, 11 July 2016.
This will be the first time that Academy Week and Craven Week are held at the same venue during the same week.
The Academy Week format has changed and will now mirror that of Craven. In other words, there are now two groups of teams. The first group plays on Monday and Wednesday, while the second group plays on Tuesday and Thursday. Friday is a rest day and all teams are in action on Saturday. Day 1 and Day 2 fixtures are predetermined. Day 3, 4 and 5 fixtures are determined during the course of the week. In all likelihood, there will be an unofficial final.
