Brighton Cricket Club has one of the largest junior programs in the South East Region and we field teams at every level of junior development from the 5 year old learning to hold a bat to the 15 year old ready to play on a turf wicket.  In accordance with Cricket Australia’s development guidelines for junior players Brighton Cricket Club offers the following programs:

 

Junior Blasters

Boys and girls aged 5 to 9 learn cricket skills in a fun environment.  Supported by senior players and parents the children participate in sessions from 9-10am on Saturday mornings from October at Brighton Beach Oval.  Children can join at any stage as it does not involve structured teams.  There is no limit on the number of children who can participate.  We have run the program very successfully for 10 years for up to 65 participants.

Master Blasters

The new era of cricket! – it’s fun, fast, quick, active, energetic and dynamic – everything children are looking for.  Girls and boys aged 7 to 10 play small sided games of modified cricket designed to develop social and physical skills and maximise participation for all kids in a fun, safe and inclusive environment.  The program is designed to build on the skills learnt at Junior Blasters but can be suitable for first timers in this age group.

Master Blasters is played with a rubber ball and so no protective equipment is needed.  All games will be played at Brighton Beach Oval 9.00 to 10.30am on Saturday mornings from October until December and resume at the beginning of Term 1 until the end of February.  Players will also have access to training sessions for 1 hour during the week to further improve their skills.

 

Aged based teams – 8 to 16 year olds

Age eligibility cut-off is 1st September.  Players must be under the nominated age as of August 31st.  Children aged between the ages of 8 – 15 on 1st September are eligible to be registered to play. Players will train on one weekday evening and play games in the South East Cricket Association every weekend from October to March, breaking from mid-December until mid-January.  Protective equipment must be worn by all players, this can be borrowed from the club.
