WHAT WE OFFER
We have programs available to suit all age groups:
Master Blaster - on Friday evenings from 5pm at Waverley Oval we run a girls only Master Blaster session. Master Blasters is a super fun, social, safe, cricket program aimed at 7 to 9 year olds (although ages can be flexible). The program is much shorter than traditional cricket, with around 60- 90 minutes playing time. All the equipment is supplied. Girls can learn skills or play games.
In season 2021/2022 we are also offering a girls only Saturday Master Blaster. Girls can form their own teams and play in a girls only competition against teams from Easts and other clubs in the local area. All games are played at Rowland Park at 8.30am on Saturday
Under-11s will play Stage 1 cricket, this is a modified format with 7 players a side and an emphasis on fun and participation. Games will last approximately 2-2.5 hours.
Under-13s can play either Stage 1 or Stage 2 depending on ability. Stage 2 cricket is 9 a side with less modified rules, its a step closer to traditional cricket. Games will last approximately 2-2.5 hours.
Under-15s will play Stage 2 cricket. Stage 2 cricket is 9 a side with less modified rules, its a step closer to traditional cricket. Games will last approximately 2-2.5 hours.

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.
When do we play and when do we train?
All age groups play on a Saturday.
