Easts Juniors

Eastern Suburbs Cricket Club (ESCC) is one of the largest cricket clubs in Australia and is unique in that our junior and senior teams are managed under one Management Committee.  Player participation drives all our cricket programs and we aim to provide a family friendly environment to allow everyone to develop to the best of their abilities.

What do I get for my money?
Registration fees include Easts playing shirt and hat, relevant association fees, council ground fees, insurances, use of appropriate cricket equipment, use of Waverley as training ground, club coaches (Waverley sessions), use of Easts Centrewicket system to track development progress.   Additionally at Easts we provide age focused development opportunities through cross age group training with our junior high performance coaches.

I have more than one Child to register?
We offer discounts if you have multiple children playing at Easts. If you are registering children in Junior Blasters (formerly In2Cricket), Master Blasters (formerly T20 Blast) and Juniors we will reimburse the discount once the season starts.

What is the difference in the style of cricket played at Junior level?
Cricket Australia has published a comprehensive document outlining the formats to be followed for junior cricket.  They are working on ensuring that the format and style of game is consistent for all associations, clubs and schools across Australia.   The formats are geared to ensure an age appropriate approach to player participation and development and take into account the needs of parents as well as kids by having faster more inclusive game formats.

SEJCA adopted the proposed model last season (2016 / 2017) for our Under 9 and Under 10 competition and continue to be at the forefront of embedding the new formats across all age groups.  There will be slight variations to the CA published model to allow for specific local challenges such as ground availability (impacting time and length of games).   Age formats will be amended over time to ensure consistency with changes to representative formats managed by the District Cricket Association (Cricket NSW).

Please follow this link to see the format highlights associated with each Age Group.

When do we play and when do we train?
The Master Blasters (formerly T20 Blast) (for U8 and U9) and the U10 play on Saturdays.  All other age groups play on Sunday (it can be either morning or afternoon)

As we have some 40+ teams in the local competition made up of kids from around the Eastern Suburbs we leave it to the coach and parents to decide what date and time suits for each teams' training.  

Who do I contact if I have questions?
Please email girlscricket@eastscricket.com.au for all Girls cricket enquiries, coaching@eastscricket.com.au for all Junior Blaster cricket enquiries and Paul at juniors@eastscricket.com.au if you have any questions about any of the other cricket programs at Easts Cricket.

What do I do if I've registered my child for the wrong program?
Please email Paul at juniors@eastscricket.com.au and let us know what changes we need to make!
