Master Blasters

2021/22 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. We now run our own program with the assistance of a club coordinator, parents and club volunteers, and all games are played at Hampton. There is a real carnival type atmosphere at Boss James Reserve - with all games being played at one time.

 

Last year Hampton had 10 sides and we are looking to grow that this year and have at least two girls sides. This is a great platform for boys and girls who arent quite ready for hardball cricket. It really is a brilliant way to develop skills and game sense in a fastpaced, fun, semi-competitive environment. We also ran training each week for those children that wanted to attend.

 

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 for kids grade 1-2 (7-8 years)

 

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:

     

  • Season commences Saturday 16 October
  • Training commences Monday 11 October 5-6pm weekly at Boss James Reserve

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 and cap (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 season.


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
