FAQ:Q: I think my daughter might be too young for these programs, but she is still keen to play cricket. Are there any other options? A: Yes, our Junior Blaster & Master Blaster cricket is likely better suited to those 5-10 year old girls who are new to the game. Please refer to these sections on our website for more information.
Q: My daughter is interested in playing, but she is worried about not being very good. Is this an issue?A: From our perspective, no experience – no worries. The club is accepting of all skill levels. We anticipate that many girls will likely be in the same boat. We hope to see them grow and develop through team training once a week. The club also offers additional coaching through its academy program (refer to section of the website) We’d also love to encourage girls to ‘bring a friend’ and sign up together, as this can often help to remove some of the apprehension and help them to try something new.
Q: What if we don’t have any equipment; won’t it be expensive to buy all that stuff?A: Each team will be provided with a team kit for use at training and matches.
Q: is there a uniform we have to wear?A: The girls will play in the clubs blue T20 shirt, with white trousers. The shirt is available to purchase through the Merchandise section of our website
