Welcome to the 2017/18 Cricket Season
Last season our Juniors made Semi Final appearances in our Under 12 & Under 14 grades with our Under 16 team narrowly missing out on making the finals.
We will be running our Under 10 and Under 12 teams on Friday nights this season with our Under 14 and Under 16 teams on Saturday mornings.
We will be also running our Milo In2Cricket program on Friday nights for girls and boys between the ages of 5 – 7 years just starting their cricketing careers. We will also have a team in the slightly more competitive T20 Blast competition running on Wednesday nights for the girls and boys between the ages of 8 – 10 years.
Welcome back to all the families from last season - we once again would like your help to make the season a positive and productive season for everybody involved with our Junior section.
If any parents are willing to assist with the running of training, assisting on match day by scoring or generally making things run smoothly, please put your hand up and we will make sure you are involved.
We ask that you help spread the word on what a great junior setup we have, and encourage others to join us in what we believe is a good club that is getting better.

This season sees a couple of changes designed to strengthen our top age groups in the Junior Competition as well as improve the Milo in2Cricket program for the 8 – 10 year olds.
This season our graduating Under 12 team will compete in the Under 14 age group on Saturday mornings. A permit system will also enable players who just miss out on the age groups a chance to play in an age group more suited to their abilities.
T20 BLAST – Has been designed for the top age of the Milo program to keep their interest by using a modified T20 format – 8 players per side which will compete against other teams in a round robin style format for an 8 week period. This program will be run on a Wednesday night this season at Liberty Reserve in Rowville.
Registration for Milo in2Cricket
We are proposing to commence our Milo program on Friday 20th October between 6:00pm and 7:00pm. Milo is a 12 week program designed to educate children in a range of fundamental motor skills important to a child’s physical development. We will be contacting all last year’s Milo participants and running a Milo registration day in October as well as on our 1st Session on Friday 20th October.
