Woolworths Cricket Blast

Woolworths Cricket Blast is a fun and fast program for kids of all abilities to learn the skills and play Australia’s favourite sport.

Buzzing with the energy of Big Bash cricket, Woolworths Cricket Blast is about fun activities and action-packed games for children of all abilities. Woolworths Cricket Blast is available for children up to 10 statewide.

Woolworths Cricket Blast is Australian Cricket’s entry level program – the first step in the Australian Cricket Pathway.

Split into three streams (Cricket Blasters, Pop-up Blast and Holiday Programs), it can be run by both schools and clubs with the intention of developing fundamental cricket skills, igniting a passion for the game, and eventually transitioning participants into junior cricket teams.

Cricket Blasters

Time of year: October – March

Program length: 6+ weeks

Session length: 60mins

Day: Multiple Options and Locations across Mon – Sun

  • Skill Development, Drills and Game Based Activities covering Catching, Throwing, Batting, Bowling, and Teamwork
  • Make new friends or come along with a group to learn and play together!
  • Wear the colours of your favourite Big Bash heroes in a personalised t-shirt!

Participants develop fundamental cricket skills through fun and exciting game-based activities, and receive their own participant pack including a bat, ball, shirt, and bucket hat. When participants can bowl with a straight arm over 14m and hit a moving ball, they are ready to move onto the next level of Cricket Blasters.

The next level on Cricket Blasters is Little Strikers and looks to be a bridge between entry level and Junior Cricket, introducing kids to modified games of cricket in a fun and social setting.

Registration will open from June 2024 with centres found HERE.
