Junior Cricket

What age-group am I?

A male player must be less than the age limit for his team prior to 1 Sep preceding the start of the season (eg: if you turn 12 before 1 Sep you are too old for under-12 competition), Girls may be up to two years older.

Pre-Competition Cricket.    (discontinued by the BHRDCA from 2017/18)

"Anklbytr Cricket" borrows its name from a Blackburn North CC pre-competition programme conducted during the 1990s and was developed in this instance from BHRDCA under-10 "Kooka Cricket". The programme essentially targets participants coming from in2CRICKET with the aim of preparing them for competition teams.

Games are played under 'guidelines' published by the Association and drawn round-robin in a 1-day Friday Twilight format traditionally commencing late October or early November then following the under-12 dates-of-play. From 2013/14 there is speculation that the draw may commence in early October possibly leading to problems as our main source of recruits is from repeat participants of in2CRICKET which is unlikely to start that early. Scoring is on modified score-sheets and optional but advisable to ensure the fair and equitable participation of all players. No ladders are compiled and there are no finals or individual performance awards.

. Unfortunately plans to re-establish the club as an in2CRICKET Centre for 2018/19 will not be realised.

Blackburn North Cricket Club registers each season as Milo In2CRICKET Centre. Traditionally commencing in early to mid-November, when active clinics are -

  • for girls and boys of primary school age.

  • held on Friday evenings from 6-7pm (TBC).

  • designed as a national standard entry-level programme of skills-based activities.

  • complemented with periodic giveaways.

There is a registration fee and this, together with the schedule will be published when confirmed prior to the start of each season. For online registration feel free to visit our in2CRICKET web page.

Season 2018/19
. _ Unfortunately plans to re-establish junior competition teams for 2018/19 will not be realised.

The Club plans to register this season as a Milo in2CRICKET Centre and to register teams in BHRDCA competitions subject to the level of response we receive from pre-season promotions -

  • No in2CRICKET programme.
  • Which, if any, BHRDCA competition teams are yet to be advised.
