Caloundra Cricket Club will proudly field junior teams in grades Under 12 to Under 16 for the upcoming 2018-19 season. All program elements are open
to boys and girls. For Under 12 through to Under 16 competitions, girls
can play up to two years under their actual age.
Our cricket program includes the following
Junior Blasters - For kids aged 5-7, Woolworths Cricket Blast captures the colour and excitement of the Men's and Women's Big Bash League in a fun and fast format.Junior Blasters is for kids learning the basic skills of cricket with participants building their skills through fun, game based activities. The activities are designed for small groups to ensure every child gets a go, allowing them to test and learn new skills. After they have mastered the basics, they will be ready for modified games of cricket.
The Junior Blasters program is set up in a way that regardless of skill level, participants can progress through the different levels of activity until they have the basic cricket skills required to progress to the Master Blasters program. Participants therefore progress to Master Blasters Program only when they master these basic cricket skills.
