OUR JUNIOR CRICKET PROGRAM
The aim of the junior cricket program at Phantoms Cricket is to be inclusive and provide access for any child from the community to play and enjoy the sport of cricket in a fun and safe environment, to improve and develop skills, to be competitive, and to encourage and facilitate progression to the next stage of their cricket, either to district, representative or senior cricket.
In 2020/21 Phantoms Cricket have a number of under 10 and under 12 teams in the Western Suburbs Junior Cricket Association. We are aiming to have both under 14's and under 16's teams in the coming seasons, as well as under 12's and 16's in the girls competition.
What do you get?
16 games per season, plus possibly finals for under 14's and up
New playing top
New playing hat
New training ball, to encourage training at home/in own time
Specialized training, including one-on-one technical advice across the season.
Blasters is a fantastic introduction and skills development opportunity for young cricketers. The playcricket website has the age for Junior Blaster as 5 to 7 and Master Blasters from 7 to 9, we recommend 7-8 is a good age to transition to the juniors competition.
Blasters and Juniors are done side-by-side, at 4.30 to 5.30 Thursday afternoons at Camden Oval.
