What are the measures taken for Child Safety?
We as a club are committed to provide a safe environment for our kids as per Cricket Australia's guideline. You can find the detail about our Child Safety policy here.

What about the cricket kit?
As per Cricket Australia's guideline Junior and Master Blaster participants do not need protective gears. We supply match balls and also few spare bats for every team playing Friday evening cricket. However for Junior cricket each player must have their own kit (including box and helmet), playing whites, pads, bat etc.

How Will I know which Team I am in?

You will be contacted by your coach / team manager 1-2 weeks before the season starts to notify you about the training times and location etc. Once the teams are allocated and coach / team manager is assigned they contact each player in the team and start the communication. The communication could be (but not limited to) email, Facebook Group, Whatsapp group etc.

Where the games are going to take place?
For junior cricketers the match venue is decided by BNJCA. We do not control the location and the teams you will be playing against.

Can I opt to play with my friends?
We try our best to accommodate the request where kids play with their siblings / friends. But please bear in mind that we may not be able to accommodate all the requests and it is easier for us to take these requests in the beginning of the registration rather than leaving to the end. It is always First in Best Dressed.

Can I see my Stats for the season?

We recommend you install free MyCricket app from the app store (Apple or Android) and then login with your mycricket id to keep track of all the game related details and your personal statistics. The Mycricket app lets you see your next game etc as well and any changes to the schedule is automatically updated in the app.

Our recommendation is to download and install the app soon after you register so that you are set for the season. Please remember to check the app in the week of season start as the teams etc are updated in that week.

What is the Stats used for?
We as a club use the stats on MyCricket for our End of year presentation. The MyCricket stats are used by various other organizations like Brisbane Premier League for their selection.

Junior Blaster and Master Blaster

Is there a Cutoff date for Junior Blaster?
There is no cut off date for Junior Blaster registration. We are required to keep the registration open as long as the season is on.

What is included in the Junior Blaster?
Cricket Australia sends out a player pack once you register. We have no control on how long the pack takes to arrive as it is handled by Cricket Australia. But we have been informed by other parents that it could take up to 6 weeks for the pack to arrive to your postal address.

What is included in Master Blaster?
For the Master Blaster participants, the club provides a Training Tshirt. But the players need to purchase their own white shirt and pant like junior players do. You can purchase the club branded whites from our shop or from a sports store near you.
