Girls Cricket

Girls cricket is undergoing a major transformation. Along with the exciting growth of the WBBC, clubs across Australia are seeing an explosion of interest from girls in playing cricket. Here at Easts we are strong supporters of girls cricket. Last year we had successful teams across a number of age groups with the majority of players back again this year to progress their cricket. We welcome any girls who tried cricket at school and want to play in a club environment as well as girls who maybe have never tried cricket but would like to give it a go. Hear from one of our own up and coming players about her cricket journey.

WHAT WE OFFER

We have programs available to suit all age groups:

Master Blaster - on Friday evenings from 5pm at Waverley Oval we run a girls only Master Blaster session. Master Blasters is a super fun, social, safe, cricket program aimed at 7 to 9 year olds (although ages can be flexible). The program is much shorter than traditional cricket, with a maximum of 90 minutes playing time. All the equipment is supplied

Under-11s will play Stage 1 cricket, this is a modified format with 7 players a side and an emphasis on fun and participation. Games will last approximately 2-2.5 hours.

Under-13s can play either Stage 1 or Stage 2 depending on ability. Stage 2 cricket is 9 a side with less modified rules, its a step closer to traditional cricket. Games will last approximately 2-2.5 hours.

Under-15s will play Stage 2 cricket. Stage 2 cricket is 9 a side with less modified rules, its a step closer to traditional cricket. Games will last approximately 2-2.5 hours.

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?


All age groups play on a Saturday.
