For anyone not familiar with the way that Junior Cricket progresses, you can follow the diagram below which explains where we start (Junior Blast) and how your child progresses through the game, and how the games that they play changes with them.
Our home grounds are at Howard Wilson Oval (Whitehorse Reserve) and Ballyshannassy Park, where we play within the Box Hill Reporter District Cricket Association.
East Box Hill has always run a junior program focused largely on quality over quantity. We place special emphasis on trying to give the junior players in our program the time they need to get the most out of their cricket - both through improvement for performance and enjoyment while they are with us.
Our Junior program is structured to ensure each session delivers a focus on the key skill outcomes in line with Cricket Australia's junior formats skill scorecards.
Examples of these can be found below:
Junior Formats One
Juniors Formats Two
Juniors Formats Three
This ensures that while our players are developing we are focusing on the right skills, at the right time. It also allows our players to keep track of their own development over their time with us - when appropriate. We place special emphasis on self-driven learning within our players, preferring to guide them and question them on aspects of their game to discover their own answers. Our training includes match simulation, skill based sessions and net sessions to ensure a wide variety of opportunities to learn and engage.
Outside of the in-season program, we also offer the opportunity for our players to receive small group training during the pre-season with specialist coaches - giving them some jump starter points to take into their pre-season.
While we place special emphasis on the quality of our coaching and a development focus, we welcome players of all interests - catering to those who just want to come and play with their friends or enjoy a muck around on the ground! Ultimately it's their season and their game, so we just want them to enjoy it in whatever way that means to them.
Those players that join East Box Hill can expect that we focus on the values of our players and how we play the game. Sportsmanship is above all else, with values of Fun, Encouragement, Respect and Teamwork part of our base for each team. We want our junior players to not only develop within their cricket, but develop as they mature and age into well balanced young men and women.
