Firstly, what is Junior Blasters and how is it played?
Some of you may have heard of, or been involved in previous years, in2Cricket. Blasters is basically the same, but with a new sponsor and updated activities for the children.
It is a specially developed program of short activities and games to teach children the basic skills important to the game of cricket – such things as how to bowl, hold the bat, scoring runs, catching and fielding.
The emphasis is on children enjoying themselves while learning.
The program is specifically aimed at girls and boys aged 5-8 yrs of age with no experience or knowledge of playing cricket.
Instructors are fully qualified and specially trained to run these programs.
What date, day and time does the program run?
The starting date for this season will be Monday 15th October.
We will run each Monday for 9 weeks, with the final day being December 10th, 2018.
Sessions will start at 4:30 and conclude by 5:30.
Gannons Park, Lugarno/Peakhurst. Adjacent to the car-park in Boatwright Avenue.
What do I need to provide?
All equipment is supplied. There is no need for children to wear any special clothing, but should have a suitable hat, and sunscreen protection. Also, bring a small snack and drink.
Do parents need to be involved?
Parental involvement is encouraged as parents often enjoy it as much as the children, and sometimes coaches are briefly distracted from the group while doing one-on-one coaching, and kids love interacting with mum/dad etc.
Involvement is not essential, however you may be asked to help out with some activities (such as helping children to line up – participating in one-on-one exercises such as catching drills - nothing which requires any knowledge of cricket!).
Once our program gets up and running - usually 2-3 weeks into the program - we will be ordering our participant packs. All children who are registered and fees paid shall receive one.
As we have new sponsors this year and, the contents of the packs is not known yet but previous years the packs have included: a back pack; plastic bat; soft ball; drink bottle; bucket hat and T shirt.
