Junior Sports – 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 U/11, U/13, U/15’s. 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).The competition runs seasonally opposite to outdoor cricket throughout the winter months, which enables you to play cricket all year round.

- U11’s, U13’s, U15’s will run on Friday afternoons at 4pm, 5pm or 6pm.

All players in a team must compete in the same coloured shirts. Shirts may be of any colour or style, provided ALL team mates wear the exact same colour.
