Brooklyn Junior Cricket Club prides itself on its inclusivity and making cricket available to all our young people! No matter your child’s age, or cricketing experience, please contact the club and see what cricket is available to your young person.

Junior Cricket is for young people in school years 2-8. Grades align to school year, eg. children in Year 3 at school (at the beginning of the cricket season) will play Grade 3 junior cricket for the season.

Children in Year 1 and below begin with First Hits, a fun family focused introduction to cricket on a Sunday morning. Over 30 youngsters started their cricket journeys through First Hits in season 2023/24! Girls can choose to play in mixed grades or in a girls’ only team (from Y5), or in both formats. More information on girls’ cricket here. These games tend to take place on a Sunday.

Across all grades there is a strong emphasis on player enjoyment, and rules are structured to provide every player an equal opportunity (all children bat and bowl for designated periods). Children in Grades 4 and below play using a soft ball, while hard ball cricket is introduced at Grade 5.
