Traditional Junior Cricket
We field traditional cricket sides in Under 10's on Wednesday nights and Under 12's, Under 14's, Under 16's & Under 18's on Friday nights. Opportunities & pathways for advancement are provided and mentored through our various cricket development academies, leadership and personal development programs. Our U16's & U18's are integrated into selected senior coaching sessions preparing them for the step up into senior cricket along with the opportunity to play with the senior sides in the lower grades. Father & Son's also get to play together when opportunity arises.
Our facilities are the envy of many a local cricket club with the recently built, all weather outdoor training facility, complete with full run-ups and artificial turf, taking the total number of cricket nets available for training to 8. The latest coaching aids including video analysis along with bowling machine complete the perfect environment for players of all levels to further their cricketing skills.
