Junior Blasters

Souths Junior Cricket Club provides the Woolworths Cricket Blast - Junior Blasters program on Friday afternoons from 5.00 to 6.00 pm at the South Brisbane District Cricket Club, Venner Road, Fairfield.

Junior Blasters is the introductory-level program aimed at boys and girls aged five to seven, who haven’t played organised cricket before.
We request that parents of children aged five assist our coaches with the activities.

Junior Blasters involves a series of fun activities designed to teach children the basics of throwing, catching, bowling and batting.

The program is run by club volunteers and parent participation and assistance is very strongly encouraged.

Junior Blasters is run for 13-weeks at Souths, split into an eight week program before Christmas (school term 4) and a five week program after Christmas (school term 1).
