Why play cricket at Rowville?

We are a family-friendly club, with our junior teams based out of Liberty Reserve, right near Heany Park PS.

We are a growing club. Last year we had the largest Junior Blast program in the whole league; three Super 7 teams; and two Fast 9 teams. We are able to recruit and retain great kids and great families because of our inclusive and friendly approach.

We have quality people involved at all levels of our club. We have young senior cricketers willing to give back to the club by coaching junior teams. 

Our number 1 goal is fun and participation, but we also want to ensure we are developing all of our players to be the best cricketers they can be.

For the upcoming season, we are offering heaps of opportunities for kids aged 4 - 13 to get involved.

 

We have the Woolworths Junior Blast program, an introductory program aimed at kids aged 4 - 8 (but we are happy to accept kids older and younger than this!).  More general information about the program can be found here: https://play.cricket.com.au/

 We also offer teams in the Super 7s, Fast 9s and U/13's.

Below, we have included some detailed information about each of these programs.

Program / Team

Who is it for?

What is it?

Woolworths Junior/Master Blast

Ages 4 – 8 (older children with limited cricket experience also welcome)

The Junior Blast program is for boys and girls who wish to learn some basic skills of cricket in a fun, activities-based environment.  The activities are designed to maximise participation and include activities where the kids will learn how to bat, bowl, throw, field and catch.  The program includes modified games of cricket.  All equipment is provided, and participants use plastic bats and balls

Super 7s

Recommended to be 7 or older on 01/09/2021,but depends on ability of player.

An introduction to structured, team-based cricket, for children who have participated in the Woolworths Junior Blast program.

 T20 format cricket matches vs other clubs.  Played with softer ‘Incrediball’ (130g). Players wear helmet, pads and gloves and bat with a wooden bat.

 Shortened pitch (16m) and smaller ground (40m boundary).

 

5 – 9 players in a team; 7 players on the field at any one time. Players can rotate on and off the field and all can bat and bowl each week.  Batters retire after a certain number of balls. Batters who are dismissed continue to bat until they reach retirement.

The games are scored as a usual cricket game, but it is a non-competitive league (no ladder or finals) 

Fast 9s

Recommended to be 9 or older on 01/09/2021, but depends on ability of player.

T20 format cricket matches vs other clubs. Players play with proper cricket ball (142g – slightly smaller than a full sized ball). Players wear helmet, pads and gloves and bat with a wooden bat.

 

Shortened pitch (18m) and smaller ground (45m boundary).

 

7 – 11 players in a team; 9 players on the field at any one time. Players can rotate on and off the field. All players will bowl each week, not all players will bat.  Batters who are dismissed are ‘out’; batters who face 20 balls will retire and can return to bat at the end of the innings if overs remain.

The games are scored as a usual cricket game, but it is a non-competitive league (no ladder or finals)

Under Age Cricket-under 12 to under 16
