Junior cricket at Blackburn Cricket Club is a very popular program with 18 teams playing last season on both Friday Nights and Saturdays. The program caters for all ages and abilities, and we welcome new members to an ever growing club. With specialist coaches and training programs the aim is for every player to not only particpate, but to also improve.
For the littlies, we offer a Woolworths Junior Blasters Cricket clinic every Saturday morning. This program is one of the states biggest, and has been the recipient of awards in the past. We also field teams in the ever growing and popular Woolworths Master Blasters, which allows beginners to participate in a non competitive environment, whilst also improving their skills. There is also the non competitive Level 1 Super 7's and Level 2 Fast 9's, which gets kids used to playing on a full sized oval, with everyone rotating through the batting and bowling equally.
From there the kids advance to Under 12, Under 14, Under 16 and now U18 with much on field success in these grades throughout the years. The kids are generally graded according to their ability, but trying as much as possible to keep friendship groups, and will compete in a competitive environment.
