After learning all the basic skills in Junior Blasters, Master Blasters allows kids to experience modified games of cricket using lighter equipment in a format that is fast paced with equal participation. The program was developed to ensure junior cricketers can progress with confidence to Stage 1 of Junior Formats.

  • Introduce participants to modified games of cricket
  • Continue to develop skills and techniques learnt at the Junior Blasters level
  • Maximise and ensure equal participation for all participants
  • Increase kids’ passion for cricket
  • Provide another option for families to be involved in Australia’s Favourite Sport
  • Ensure families continue to see links to Big Bash teams
  • Increases the uptake of volunteers by altering the perception of non traditional cricket families
  • Less initial financial commitment due to all equipment being supplied
  • Less time commitment due to shorter more flexible games 

As participants continue to develop their skills through Master Blasters, they will track their progression on their Master Blasters Skill Scorecard which they receive in their participant pack.
