Junior Blaster is the name for Cricket Australia's entry level program. Junior Blaster plays a major role in achieving our vision to be Australia's favourite sport by ensuring the long term health of cricket within clubs and schools.
The program is a fun introduction to the game for young boys and girls. It provides children with an enjoyable and safe learning environment where they can build their confidence, develop new skills and play games.
Appropriate ages are from 4 to 7 years old. Older or more advanced children should register for Master Blaster (ages 7 to 9)
From ages nine onwards, we encourage children with the right skill level to move into our U/11 teams. The Caulfield Cricket Club's Junior Blaster program is run by experienced senior and coach accredited players, ensuring that your children will receive sound advice and coaching. The program teaches children the most important lesson of all which is to LOVE THE GAME!
Once a child learns to love the game of cricket they will be a cricketer for life and will experience all the benefits the game provides: healthy lifestyle, team work, respect, sportsmanship, leadership, confidence, grace in victory, fun and excitement, self esteem, lifelong friendships, dignity in defeat and skill improvement.

Please register early and your Junior Blaster start kits will be sent directly to your home address. You can register on session days as well. All registered children receive a Junior Blaster's starters kit consisting of a bat, ball, shirt and hat.
10am to 11am Saturday mornings at Caulfield Park Main Oval (cnr Balaclava and Hawthorn roads)
Season: Saturday 26 October to Saturday 14 December.
Depending on your child's skills you are also welcome to join the Master Blaster program that recommences after Christmas from Saturday 1 February to 22 February.
The session runs for one hour. Each session has a warm up activity, followed by basic ball skills. We then break the children into groups: experienced children will perform some more advanced skill sessions and newer children will perform skill sessions to introduce the concept of batting, bowling and fielding. We will assess the skill level of the child at the start of the season. Please let me know if you think your child should be in an alternative group at any time during the season.
A parent or guardian should remain at the ground during the session or arrange for another adult to be responsible for your child(ren) in the event of injury or a premature conclusion to the session.
At all times, Caulfield Cricket Club will conduct the Junior Blaster sessions in a safe environment. The program is held outdoors so weather will (and does) affect us. Caulfield Cricket Club reserves the right to cancel a session if the ground is unsafe for any reason. The following weather cancellation policies apply:
Wet weather: if it is pouring on the day and the ground is likely to be saturated. It is up to parent’s discretion on intermittent rainy days.
Hot weather: if the temperature on Saturday morning at 8:00am has reached 30 degrees Celsius according to Melbourne Radio 774 ABC, we will cancel the session.
Caulfield Cricket Club holds a fun Christmas breakup to which you are all invited. We also have an end of season free BBQ for the children on the final session day.
