JUNIOR SPORTS INDOOR CRICKET
Indoor Cricket is an immensely popular sport, having been played in Australia since it was invented in the late 70's. Now played by over 200,000 participants Australia wide, the beauty of Indoor Cricket is that each player bats and bowls the same number of overs as their team mates, ensuring all players remain involved in the game. Here at Seamer Sports, we offer junior competitions for 11 and under, 13 and under, 15 and under and 17 and under (colts). All players must be in their age group for the duration of the season (i.e. 10yr old and 11yr old's will play in the U/11's competition). For the first time at Seamers, we will also be offering the Woolworths Cricket Blast programs for beginner crickets aged 4-10 on Saturday mornings. The competitions run seasonally opposite to outdoor cricket throughout the winter months, which enables you to play cricket all year round.
GAME DURATION AND START TIMES
11's, 13's 15's and 17's are played on Friday afternoons at from 4pm through to 8pm. The 11 and under division will predominantly play at 4pm or 5pm each week, 13's at 5pm or 6pm, 15's at 6pm or 7pm and 17's at 7pm, possibly 8pm. All games go for just under an hour with slightly modified rules as appropriate for each age group.
All players should be at the centre no later than 10 minutes prior to the scheduled game time.
