Junior Cricket 2018/19
Exciting new formats for Under 9s - 17s make playing junior cricket better than ever this season!
Registration is now OPEN....please check the Registration page for more details
Stage 1 - U9 to U11 will be from mid September
U12 to U17 will be from October
Junior Cricket is played on Saturday mornings, generally starting at 8.30am and finishing about 12.30pm. All teams from Under 13 and older use leather balls, pads and helmets and all the equipment similar to seniors. Stage 1 (ages 8 to 10) use a softer ball.
Stage 1 & 2 play a modified form of the game offering every player an equal opportunity to bowl, bat and field.
We play against teams from the Canterbury & Western Suburbs Cricket Association, which includes teams from Punchbowl in the west to Tempe in the east and from Clemton Park/Roselands in the south to Balmain/Concord West in the north.
Strathfield Cricket Club has Junior cricket teams from Under 9 years to Under 17 years, and then the senior cricket teams in the Sydney Shires competition.
But our cricket program begins with Woolworths Junior BLAST, the national cricket skills program for 5-8 year olds (younger players accepted too).
Children can join the Junior BLAST 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!
As with all other volunteer organisations our Club prospers through the help of our volunteers. Our coaches, managers, scorers are parents who volunteer to ensure their kids get a game of cricket. Without the help of our parents we would be unable to provide the cricket the kids deserve each week. We urge you to volunteer in some capacity, whatever that may be. The Club will assist with training for coaching and umpiring but there are many other jobs that require no formal training from scoring to managing to Club communication. Don't wait to be asked, please put your hand up to help.
The Club provides a team kit for the younger age groups but as the age groups advance it is recommended that players have their own gear. In order of importance that would be protector, helmet, bat, gloves, pads. That also allows players to practice outside formal practice sessions.
The Club will provide a Strathfield CC playing shirt and cap, but players will need to provide pants (white/cream trousers/shorts) and cricket shoes - or predominantly white trainers or rubber-soled shoes. Sunscreen is essential as we will play through some hot days. It is suggested that each player has his own water bottle to ensure he remains hydrated during play.
