Junior Club Cricket - Under 10's
Exciting new junior formats were introduced in the 2017-18 season.
MORE FUN, MORE RUNS, MORE WICKETS = GREAT CRICKET!!
The Under 10's competition, for year 4s going into year 5, plays home and away 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 wears helmet, pads, gloves and abdominal guard ("box" or "cup"). They bat for an allocated number of overs and if they get out the batters swap ends. Once the batter's overs are up they swap with the next batter. Games go for 20 overs per side.
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 day depends on the coach and ground availability.
There is no ladder or finals played, but 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 - $15 hat and $35 shirt. White pants can be purchased from a cricket store, or Kmart / BigW. For hygiene purposes you are encouraged to purchase your own abdominal guard, 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 😊
KidSport does provide a grant to cover the cost of registration fees for healthcare card holders and there is a limited club subsidy available for financial hardship – please email the club for more information.
