Cricket Programs

Player participation drives all our cricket programs. Wilston Norths aim is to provide a family friendly environment to allow everyone to develop to the best of their abilities. We offer a wide variety of Cricket Programs for children aged 5 to 18 years, for those who are new to cricket and want to get the skills required to play games to those who love their cricket and wish to play at the highest level.

For the little ones, our Woolworths Cricket Blast is a fun and fast program for kids of all abilities to learn the skills and play Australia’s favourite sport.

Buzzing with the energy of big bash cricket, Woolworths Cricket Blast teaches kids how to bat, bowl, field and catch over all while making new friends.

Come and join the fun at Wilston Norths with Woolworths Cricket Blast sessions delivered at Gibson Park, Stafford.

Girls Cricket

Where numbers and demand are supported Wilston Norths offer girls only teams in the following Cricket Programs :
  • Junior Blasters – Aged 5 – 7 Years
  • Master Blasters (formerly Super 6’s) – Aged 7 – 10 Years
  • Girls Cricket Competition (Junior Cricket Stages 1 to 3) – Aged 9 – 18 Years

Visit the individual Cricket Program page for more information and registration details.

* Girls are permitted to ‘play down’ up to 2 age groups to account for any difference in skills or maturity levels.

Please note: there is often overlap between the programs and age ranges below. This accounts for girls who might still be developing the skills required to play in games or simply might prefer to enjoy this particular format for various reasons.

Combining Club and School Cricket

We appreciate the demands placed on parents when it comes to deciding whether to play or not play both Club and School Cricket. Club fixtures are structured so that players are able to successfully combine playing both Club cricket for Wilton Norths and cricket for their school, parents often splitting these across Club Cricket in Term 4 and School Cricket in Term 1.

For those players who love their cricket and wish to play at the highest level Wilston Norths encourages players to continue playing for the club so to maintain exposure to the Pathway programs.

Most schools also offer opportunities to play representative cricket for Metropolitan North School Sports.
