We play against teams from the Canterbury & Western Suburbs Cricket Association. Strathfield Cricket Club has Junior cricket teams from Stage 1 to Under 15, and then the senior cricket teams in the Sydney Shires competition. For our younger cricketers we have the Woolworths Junior Blaster program, the national cricket skills program for 5-7 year olds (younger players accepted too) and the Master Blasters program (T20 matches for 7-10 year olds). Children can join the Junior Blaster program, and continue playing for Strathfield CC until... well, around the age of 50 you get a tap on the shoulder and some whippersnapper suggests you might like to umpire!

The general age rule for cricket is based on your child's age on 31st August. If your son or daughter is 12 years old on 31 August, he/she will play Under 13.
Since CWSCA only has U11, U13 and U15 competitions, your child may need to play up an age group.For e.g. both U12 and U13 will compete in the U13 competition, U14 and U15 will compete in the U15 competition.
If your child is aged 8 or 9, then he/she will be playing Stage 1 Cricket.
If you have a child aged 5-7, look up the Junior Blaster program which focuses on basic skill development in a fun environment. The Master Blasters program is available on weekdays for kids aged 7-10 and is a suitable progression from Junior Blasters.Boys and girls aged 8 and above are invited to play Junior Cricket. Its is recommended that the participant has completed either Junior Blasters or Master Blasters before playing Junior Cricket as this will make the transition easier. Visit the Junior Formats page for a summary of the playing conditions.U17 competition will proceed only if sufficent registrations are received. All other age groups will have a confirmed junior season.
If you are playing Stage 1 (ages 8 to 10), we recommend that you use the gear provided in the team kit.If you are U11 or above, it is recommended that you have your own kit. This also allows players to practice outside formal practice sessions.
You are required to purchase white cricket trousers and a protector(boys only).Sunscreen is essential as we will play through some hot days. Bring a bottle of water to ensure your child remains hydrated during play.
The club will provide a playing shirt and cap.
