Junior Blasters program teaches girls and boys the skills to play Australia's favourite sport, through fun game based activities.
Girls 7-10 –Friday night - Master Blaster
For younger girls aged 7-10 yrs, the T20 @ Balmoral Oval on Friday nights is popular. There is plenty of music, cartwheels and dancing mixed in with the cricket. Parents can walk the dog, go for a swim, grab fish and chips or hold an end-of-week picnic with friends whilst the girls hone their skills under the guidance of coaches. It’s fun, fast and friendly!
Girls 9 – 11 – Saturday AM
This year we are looking to enter a Stage 1 Saturday competition
This is for girls who are new to “whites” cricket. Games are played 9 a side and there are modified rules to ensure the focus is on learning skills.
Girls 10-13 - Saturday PM
Our U13s team plays in 2 x 8 week Girls Only competitions (one before Christmas and one after Christmas)
Games are played locally on the North Shore, all games starting at 2.00pm.
Our U13s play “whites” cricket, but there are some modified rules to ensure participation. The format suits a variety of skill level with many first time players mixed in with some more experienced girls.
Girls 12-15 – Saturday PM
For the first time we are looking to form an U15s team this season. Similar to the U13s competition, U15s is an 8 week Girls Only competitions (one before Christmas and one after Christmas). Games are played locally on the North Shore, all games starting at 2.00pm.
The team will likely include some older girls even at a beginner level and some younger girls who are strong players ready for their next cricketing challenge.
Brewers Cup team
We are advanced in discussions with North Sydney Cricket Club as we look to form a joint venture to form a Brewers team in 2018/9 season. This is a fantastic opportunity for our strong female players to play at a high level and continue their development. If your daughter is interested in playing, please contact Caroline Veitch (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will provide more information and register your interest. As Brewers is played on a Sunday, this option is available in addition to girls playing in Saturday afternoon teams (for Mosman and for other teams).

Never played before?
Don’t let that stop you! It is not too late to learn. We have many girls who played for the first time last season and are hoping to welcome more again this season.
Why is girls cricket a good summer sports option?
Cricket is a great summer sport option for girls as it develops good hand/eye coordination skills through fielding, batting and bowling as well as aerobic capacity from the fast-paced action. It also teaches strategy and team work. We have around 50 female players in the club at different levels and ages.
Statistically, girls have a much, much greater chance of becoming an elite cricketer than do boys and the advent of the Women’s Big Bash League saw a growth in participation and growing crowds last summer. Cricket is now the highest paying female sport in Australia supported by greater investment in the game at all levels.
We will happily partner with local schools and other winter sports codes who gain great value from developing different skill sets and in keeping their teams together.
