Easts Juniors

Eastern Suburbs Cricket Club (ESCC) is one of the largest cricket clubs in Australia and is unique in that our junior and senior teams are managed under one Management Committee.  Player participation drives all our cricket programs and we aim to provide a family friendly environment to allow everyone to develop to the best of their abilities. 

COMPETITION INFORMATION

We offer junior cricket for boys and girls aged between 5 and 17 and have pathways into Sydney Premier Cricket through our senior program. Our junior programs are aligned to Cricket Australia’s pathway (https://www.community.cricket.com.au/clubs/participation-programs/junior-formats).

WOOLWORTHS BLASTER CRICKET

Our entry-level program is Junior Blasters at Waverley Oval on Sat mornings or Friday evening for children aged 4 to 7. This is a skills-based program . Our Saturday program is unique in that it is run by our grade players.

The next step is Master Blaster on Saturday mornings and Friday evenings for boys and girls 7 and 8. This is a game-based format focussed on fun and participation.

STAGE 1-3 JUNIOR CRICKET

Following Master Blaster players move into the formal junior competition for ages 8-16. This progresses through Stages 1-3 of Cricket Australia's pathway starting with U10’s and finishing with U17’s. All formats require protective equipment and are played in the Eastern Suburbs (U10-U12) and both the Eastern Suburbs and Inner West (U13-U17). Details are:

What do I get for my money?


Registration fees include Easts playing shirt and hat, relevant association fees, council ground fees, insurances, use of appropriate cricket equipment, use of Waverley as training ground, club coaches (Waverley sessions), use of Easts Centrewicket system to track development progress.   Additionally at Easts we provide age focused development opportunities through cross age group training with our junior high performance coaches.

I have more than one Child to register?

We offer discounts if you have multiple children playing at Easts. If you are registering children in Junior Blasters (formerly In2Cricket), Master Blasters (formerly T20 Blast) and Juniors we will reimburse the discount once the season starts.

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?

The Master Blasters (formerly T20 Blast) (for U8 and U9) and the U10 play on Saturdays.  All other age groups play on Sunday (it can be either morning or afternoon)

As we have some 40+ teams in the local competition made up of kids from around the Eastern Suburbs we leave it to the coach and parents to decide what date and time suits for each teams' training.  

Who do I contact if I have questions?

Please email girlscricket@eastscricket.com.au for all Girls cricket enquiries, for all other queries contact Paul at juniors@eastscricket.com.au

What do I do if I've registered my child for the wrong program?
