Since 2000 MCC has focused on and expanded its junior cricket program to provide for girls and boys in the area to develop their interest, skills and love of the game. We now offer cricket programs from ages 4 and up that support girl's and boy's development. This includes:
7-10 years Primary aged girls and boys can try the game with our Master Blasters program. A weekly 90 minute game session run over 8 weeks in February & March on a Friday evening. We run Girls Only and Mixed Centres. All equipment is supplied and parents join in the fun by umpiring, wrangling players and scoring.
U15s: 11 players/team, 20m pitch, 50m boundary. U15's play a mix of one-day (30-30) games and two-day games over consecutive Saturday mornings. Games are Saturday mornings on fields around the Inner West.
MCC is committed to developing girls and their families interest, skills and love of cricket from the earliest age through to club competition and representative level.
At MCC there is no such thing as a girl's sport or boy's sport - there is just cricket. Following on from the amazing success of the Women's Big Bash League and the Southern Stars Cricket Australia, Cricket NSW and local associations are focusing on encouraging girls to join in the fun of cricket.
We start with Junior Blaster (4-7 years) and provide players and coaches as role models to build their confidence and competence at cricket alongside the boys.
In the 7-12 year age group MCC works with CricketNSW to run the Master Blasters Inner West Girls Only centre. This an 8 week program of 90-minute sessions overseen by professional coaches and has all players batting, bowling and fielding to a backdrop of music and fun. Girls take centre stage and enjoy the sport with friends and old and new. Master Blaster is a great format to give primary school-aged girls a taste of the excitement of the game and develop cricket skills.
Girls aged 7-15 years are also eligible and welcome to play in the CWSCA junior club competition Stage 1, U11, U13 and U15s teams. We encourage mixed teams especially at the Stage 1 and U11 age groups.
MCC also enters teams in the girls only competition - Sydney Thunder Girls League. These teams are U13 and U15 nine-a-side teams which play on Saturday afternoons. These teams are supported by strong coaching and enthusiastic parents.MCC girl players are also eligible to trial for Canterbury & Western Suburbs Cricket Association (CWSCA) representative teams in the U13 Mollie Dive and U15 Margaret Peden Shield competitions. These representative teams play on Sundays. Trials usually take place in early September and games commence in October.
MCC has established links with the Universities Women Grade Cricket Club to give our female players aged 12/13 and up further coaching, playing and development opportunities in the Brewers Cup and continuing on to 3rd, 2nd and 1st Grade as they age.
MCC is now the largest junior club in the CWSCA.
