Junior Club Cricket - Under 10's
Exciting new U10'S formats were introduced in the 2017-18 season.
MORE FUN, MORE RUNS, MORE WICKETS = GREAT CRICKET!!
The Under 10's competition is a home and away comp, with modified rules. Everyone bats, bowls and fields. The U10's use a smaller, lighter, softer red ball than a full 6 stitcher. Click to download rules
When batting the batter is in full cricket gear - helmet, pads, gloves etc. They bat for an allocated number of overs and if they get out the batters swap ends. Once the batting pairs' overs are up they swap with another pair.
Games go for 20 overs per side and often this is split in half again. ie a team bats for 10 overs then fields for 10 overs, then bats for another 10 overs then fields for 10 overs. This is known as quarters cricket and keeps the kids moving and interested and on hot days gives them a break from the sun.
The under 10's play their matches on Sunday mornings. The season runs during terms 4 and 1 with a break over the summer school holidays. Training is on Wednesday and Friday afternoons.There is no ladder or finals played and no game day results, although scores are kept. And believe me at the end of the game all the kids want to do is find out who has won!The scores are kept so your child's statistics can be loaded in to the mycricket website where you can see how your child is performing. The kids love seeing their names and stats on the website.The cost of Under 10's is $130 for the season which includes use of the team’s playing equipment. All you need to purchase is the uniform - shirt, pants and hat. Shirts and hats can be purchased from the club as they have our logo on them - $20 hat and $45 shirt. Pants can be purchased from a cricket store, or Kmart / BigW. For hygiene purposes you are encouraged to purchase your own protective cup, less than $10 from a sports store.Fees are kept low because of all the wonderful parents and volunteers helping to get the kids out on the field! Each team needs volunteers to help with coaching, umpiring, scoring and managing the team. Given that teams have (approx.) 7 players, this means most families will need to help in some way – full training is available so please pitch in 😊
