Registrations for the Blayney Junior Cricket club are still open for 2018-19, and there have been some changes to the juniors’ games this year.

Sign ups close on October 15 for the juniors with the first game of the season happening on October 20.

There are four sides registered already, and secretary Amanda Grenfell said that the juniors now will be part of the exciting new ‘Blasters’ program.

“The Blasters are held every Friday afternoon for eight weeks,” she said.

The junior side is for ages 5-7 and will run for 60 minutes whilst the master side is for ages 7 – 10 and will run for 90 minutes.

The programs have been developed by Cricket Australia.

Junior Blasters is for kids new to cricket with participants building their skills through fun, game based activities.

The games are designed for small groups to ensure every child gets a go, allowing them to test and learn new skills.

When they have mastered the basics they will be ready to graduate to Master Blasters where they can play modified games of cricket.

Registrations are $99 and can be made online at http://www.playcricket.com.au/club-finder/club-details
