For those new to the cricket scene Junior Blasters is the equivalent of the AFL Auskick program aimed at Boys and Girls 4-7 years of age. Mt Eliza holds Sessions on Saturday Mornings which go for about 60 mins (9.30-10.30am). We work on basic cricket skills which include Batting, Bowling, Catching and Throwing. The coaches also have a couple of fun games that everyone gets to participate in!
The coaches will group children into their age groups on the day. Groups will rotate between different activities, with everyone getting to have an equal go at each activity. We also encourage parents to join in activities with the kids, from our experience there is nothing better for the kids than having their Parent/Guardian join in and have a go! The coaches like to keep everyone on their toes so be ready for a few surprises throughout the morning.
For just $99 a season you enjoy a minimum of 6 sessions a year which run Saturdays in October to December, with all of the above included as well as receiving an Junior Blasters pack which includes a Personalised T Shirt!
There may also be opportunities to participate in Junior Blasters during breaks at International, Domestic or Local Cricket throughout the summer. So get practising with the kids because you never know when our coaches might call you in to participate.
When: Saturday Mornings from Saturday 19th of October to Saturday 14th of December (NOTE: No Blasters on Melbourne Cup Weekend November 2nd)
