Get involved and enjoy some quality time with your child

The Junior Blasters program is designed for parents to get involved and spend some quality time with their child learning some simple cricket skills. Your involvement in the program has a huge impact on your child’s enjoyment, skill progression and achievement.

The Blast Crew is a great first step for first time cricket parents to get involved and have some fun with your child and provide a great experience.

If you’re familiar with the Junior Blasters program have you thought about becoming a Blast Coordinator? We provide online training as well as great resources click here for information.

We like to have our youngest cricketers get started having some fun and learning the basic skills. After a season or two of Junior Blasters they can progress to Master Blasters.
