We provide an environment focusing on kids abilities, as opposed to their disabilities.

Get involved and enjoy some quality time with your child

The Junior Blasters program is designed for parents to get involved and spend some quality time with their child learning the skills of cricket. Parent involvement is a huge determinant of participant enjoyment, skill progression and achievement. The ‘Blast Crew’ has been developed to provide clarity and options for parents and volunteers to get involved.
