The Subiaco Marist Cricket Club in conjunction with the WACA runs the WOOLWORTHS Junior Blasters and Master Blasters programs for boys and girls. The programs showcase the values of the club and the fun that children can have playing cricket. In addition, they provide the necessary skills to graduate to the next level of cricket, Under 10’s, where players participate in a home and away competition.
WOOLWORTHS Junior Blasters
Australian cricket’s entry level program for children in Pre-Primary - Year 2. WOOLWORTHS Junior Blasters blends a mix of skills-based drills and activities with short, modified games of cricket in a fun, safe environment. The program aims to provide kids of all abilities, regardless of cricket experience, with an opportunity to develop their cricket skills, stay fit and healthy, and most importantly, have fun with friends. Sessions run for 60 minutes.
WOOLWORTHS Master Blasters
The WOOLWORTHS Master Blasters program is for children in Year 2 - Year 5. Participants play short, modified games of cricket in a team based environment. With only six players per team, all participants enjoy greater involvement in the game. The guide provided by Cricket Australia on moving from WOOLWORTHS Junior Blasters to WOOLWORTHS Master Blasters is participants should be able to bowl with a straight arm with reasonable accuracy over 14m. Sessions run for 90 minutes.
Both programs provide a great opportunity for children to learn to play cricket and interact with children of a similar age in a fun, safe environment. All sessions are run each Friday between 5pm-6.00pm for WOOLWORTHS Junior Blasters, and between 5pm-6.30pm for WOOLWORTHS Master Blasters. There is a great social atmosphere afterwards where players and parents can enjoy a sausage sizzle in the club rooms with drinks available from a cash bar (all proceeds going to the club).
Parent involvement is paramount to the success of the program, whether it's chipping in with coaching, or cooking sausages. So please volunteer to help out wherever possible!
