Master Blasters

2018/19 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 was the biggest in Australia, and we have been given the opportunity to host the games again.

 

Last year Hampton had seven 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.

 

In 2015/16 we saw the first team of kids who have gone from In2Cricket through T20 Blast and into hardball rookies cricket – and the skill level compared to other teams was amazing. Last year most of that side formed the majority of our U12C side, which won the premiership. There is no doubt the time they had spent in T20 Blast cricket gave 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 30mins
  • 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:

  •  Saturday 20th October 2018 – 8th December 2018 (9:00am-10:30am)
  •  Saturday 2nd February 2019 – 23rd February 2019 (9:00am-10:30am)

Cost will be $99 which will include all of your games, and an exciting kit. We will provide a Hampton shirt for use in all games, and all kids get a medal at the completion of the sessions

 

Remember this is still cricket for Hampton CC and you cannot play U12 Rookies and Master Blasters as they are both conducted on a Saturday morning.

 

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
