Master Blasters

2020/21 Master Blasters Registrations

Now Open

 

Master Blasters (formerlyT20Blast) is a concept developed by Cricket Australia to bridge the gap between Junior Blasters (formerly MILO In2Cricket) and Junior Club Cricket. It is run by employees of Cricket Australia and Cricket Victoria with assistance from parents and club volunteers, and all games are played at Hampton. There is a real carnival type atmosphere at Boss James Reserve - with 10 mini games being played at one time. Every year our centre is the biggest in Australia, and we have been given the opportunity to host the games again.

 

Last year Hampton had five sides and we are looking to maintain that this year. This is a great platform for boys and girls who aren’t quite ready for hardball cricket. It really is a brilliant way to develop skills and game sense in a fast paced, fun, semi-competitive environment.

 

Our older junior grades are now starting to fill up with kids who have been through the program, and there is no doubt the time they had spent in Blasters cricket is giving our junior seahorses the grounding needed to make the jump into hardball cricket. This participation pathway is strongly recommended

 

Major benefits with Master Blasters:

  • Shorter game times - 1hr 15mins
  • 6 a side games (Ideally 7 or 8 in a squad works best)
  • Soft "incredi-ball" ball (no protective equipment required)
  • Shorter season - with bonus sessions after Xmas
  • Bat for an allocated time (Opposition gain runs for dismissals, rather than being "out")
  • With the music and mascots, games are fun for players and spectators

Relevant dates:

  •  Hampton's internal hub will commence 14th November, the external hub will commence after Christmas

Cost will be $99 which will include all of your games, and an exciting kit. All new Hampton players will get their own Hampton shirt (to keep costs down we ask that 2nd year Blasters use their existing shirt), and all kids get a medal at the completion of the sessions

 

Volunteers – we need your assistance

We always need extra hands to help with the early days of your child’s cricket career. Master Blasters is a pretty easy concept – generally it is a parent to umpire (which is very simple), one to score (which is very simple) and one to make sure that each team and their members go to the right game (generally the hardest partJ). If you can assist, please let us know – the games really can’t function without your help

Parents playing Senior Cricket

We have plenty of opportunities for parents to play senior cricket as well. We have 6 senior sides with games on Saturday or Sunday. Skill level is varied, and experience is not a pre-requisite so if you are keen to play on a regular or fill-in basis please contact Glenn Finkelde via email or on 0400130737
