Club cricket provides opportunities to engage in competition and more specific skill development where mastering the basics of cricket are a priority.

Whether you are a junior who has been through the MILO programs or have just played in the backyard, at school, in the park or on the beach, cricket clubs are thriving community hubs that provide a great environment for making friends and also for developing and honing cricket skills.

Junior clubs provide younger players with the opportunity to get used to all that’s great about their local club from an early age. With several different formats including T20 cricket, there’s a game and a standard for everyone.

Background

The game of cricket is played by 120 million players in many countries, making it the world’s second most popular sport. Each team takes its turn to bat, attempting to score runs, while the other team fields. Each turn is known as an innings.

How does a game work?

Cricket is a game played between two teams on a field. Both teams have an opportunity to bat and then bowl and field.

The bowler delivers the ball to the batter who attempts to hit the ball with their bat away from the fielders so the player can run to the other end of the pitch and score a run. Each batter continues batting until they is out. The batting team continues batting until the batter are out, or a specified number of overs of six balls have been bowled, at which point the teams switch roles and the fielding team comes in to bat.

Information for parents

Getting moving, learning the skills and playing and competing build strong foundations of movement skills and assist with social interaction.

Cricket offers many opportunities for your child to develop their skills. Whatever your child’s skill level they will find every cricket match to be enjoyable and challenging.

Burleigh Cricket Club are interested to hear from young children and parents looking to be involved in the game. Often children and parents get a group together from school and go and join a club for further competition opportunities. Not only will the child develop cricket skills they will also be able to make friends, be active, learn about the game and important skills like leadership, decision making, and team work.

As cricket clubs are volunteer and community-based organisations, parents can also get involved as a volunteer, coachumpire, scorer or committee member.
