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.
