There will always be a couple of ordinary bowlers in your team at that standard, and there is often still the need to "give everyone a go". So what Goughy says applies to the better bowlers in your side, but I'd be prepared to have more protection for your lesser bowlers.
I'm playing U/14s for my school team, I don't play juniors on weekend, except 14's rep, and then seniors (3rd grade). I'm playing for my school cus I have a chance to play with all my mates and captain and play juniors again etc.
