Woolworths Cricket Blast

Many people may remember the Milo Cricket programs of old. In recent years, Woolworths have

taken the reigns and have ramped things up with 2 programs based on fun, developing skills and

equal participation.

Junior Blaster Program

  • Aimed at kids from age 5-7, the Woolworths Junior Blaster program is an exciting program

  centred around game based activities, fun, friends and being part of a squad.

  • Each session runs for approximately 1 hour with the program usually running for 6-8 weeks.
  • Participating kids receive a pack containing a bat, ball, t-shirt and cap (plus some extra

  goodies) and all required equipment is provided at each session.

  • As kids are still learning to control their bowling, throwing, catching and hitting, rubber balls

   and plastic bats are used to help keep things safe!

Parents & Carers are relied upon to assist their kids with the various activities, especially whist they

gain confidence and become familiar with the program. We are always on the lookout for people to

take the next step and assist with the delivery of the program (don’t worry, you don’t need to be the

next Mathew Wade or D'Arcy Short to help out!). If you think you might be interested or would like

to know more about what is involved, please contact our club Junior Coordinator, Luke Ellis, at

Further details on the program can be found here.

Registrations will be opening soon with further details on session times and days.

Master Blaster Program
Having gained the ability to bowl with a straight arm and mastered the art of hitting a ball (either in

the Junior Blaster program or in the backyard!), the Woolworths Master Blaster program is aimed at

kids aged 7-10.

  • The program sees kids begin to play games of modified cricket. Matches are fast paced and

   see all participants get an equal opportunity to bat, bowl and field.

  • Still using a rubber ball, the program allows kids to further develop their cricket skills in a fun

   and safe environment.

  • All participants will receive a Clarence District Cricket Club playing top along with a Master

   Blaster cap.

  • Weekly sessions run for approximately 90 minutes and all equipment is provided.
  • Participants are divided into teams for the duration of the program with a parent/s acting as
    a team manager and umpire. This might sound like a daunting role but it is very straight
    forward. Rules are very much simplified and as long as you can count to 6 you’ll be fine!

We are currently looking for a Master Blaster Coordinator to assist in the delivery of the program.

This will involve team allocations, the setting up and packing up of “grounds” on the oval (putting

out cones and playing gear) and providing any assistance to the CDCC Master Blaster teams as

required. If you would like to know more about the role or are willing to jump straight in please

contact our club Junior Coordinator, Luke Ellis, at
