Junior Club Cricket - Under 10's
EXCITING NEW U10'S formats were introduced in the 2017-18 season.
MORE FUN, MORE RUNS, MORE WICKETS = BETTER 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.
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.
When bowling the bowler can bowl from a short popping crease if they are struggling to make the distance to the other end.
Most games go for around 20 - 24 over 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 from around 21st October until end of term 4 then we all break for the summer holidays and start up at the beginning of term one the next year for another 5 - 6 weeks.
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 $120 for the season. 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 - $15 hat and $40 shirt. Pants can be purchased from a cricket store and cost about $30 - $40 or you may find cheaper versions at Kmart / BigW.
