Girls 4-6 years
Join in the fun of Junior Blasters – Saturday mornings at Allan Border Oval.
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 @ Allan Border Oval on Friday nights is popular. There is plenty of music, cartwheels and dancing mixed in with the cricket. Parents can walk the dog, 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
Our U11 girls play on Saturday morning in a T20 format game.
This is for girls who are new to “whites” cricket. Games are played 7 a side and there are modified rules to ensure the focus is on learning skills.
Girls 12-17 - Saturday PM
Our U13s, U15's and U17's team plays a T20 format on a Saturday afternoon
Games are played locally on the North Shore, all games starting at 1.00pm or 3.30pm.
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.
Brewers Cup team
We are in discussions with North Sydney Cricket Club as we look to form a joint venture to form a Brewers team in 2020/21 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.
