Junior Blaster is the first step for most on their cricketing journey, with a skills-based program and fun, mini-games run in groups.  Ages of participants will generally range from 4 to 7.  The next step is Master Blaster, and usually participants will have completed at least one season of Junior Blaster, and be aged 7 or 8.  Once again this is skills-based with games involved, but not competition style against other clubs.  "Whites" cricket begins at the under 9 level, with teams playing against other clubs on Saturday mornings.

 

For competition cricket U9 and above, team training will be held one weekday afternoon each week, during the season.  Typically this commences one or two weeks prior to the start of the season.  More detail on training times and locations will be provided following registration and grading.
