Woolworths Cricket Blast is Cricket Australia's entry level program for girls and boys. It 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.
Cricket Blast captures the colour and excitement of the Men's and Women's Big Bash League in a fun and fast format.
After learning all the basic skills in Junior Blasters, Master Blasters allows kids to experience modified games of cricket using lighter equipment in a format that is fast paced with equal participation. The program was developed to ensure junior cricketers can progress with confidence to Stage 1 Junior Formats.
