Easts Cricket Club Juniors

Easts Juniors

Eastern Suburbs Cricket Club (ESCC) is one of the largest cricket clubs in Australia and is unique in that our junior and senior teams are managed under one Management Committee.  Player participation drives all our cricket programs and we aim to provide a family friendly environment to allow everyone to develop to the best of their abilities. 


We offer junior cricket for boys and girls aged between 5 and 17 and have pathways into Sydney Premier Cricket through our senior program. Our junior programs are aligned to Cricket Australia’s pathway (https://www.community.cricket.com.au/clubs/participation-programs/junior-formats).


Our entry-level program is Junior Blasters at Waverley Oval on Sat mornings or Friday evening for children aged 4 to 7. This is a skills-based program . Our Saturday program is unique in that it is run by our grade players.

The next step is Master Blaster on Saturday mornings and Friday evenings for boys and girls 7 and 8. This is a game-based format focussed on fun and participation.


Following Master Blaster players move into the formal junior competition for ages 8-16. This progresses through Stages 1-3 of Cricket Australia's pathway starting with U10’s and finishing with U17’s. All formats require protective equipment and are played in the Eastern Suburbs (U10-U12) and both the Eastern Suburbs and Inner West (U13-U17). Details are:


Registration for the 2022-23 season is now open. We are please to announce that full season registrations for the 2022-23 season are now open for Junior Blasters, Master Blaster, Junior Cricket and Girls Cricket. This season we have a new registration process.  Cricket Australia has rolled out PlayHQ.  Some parents will have had experience with the system from other sports.  Please take the time to read the detailed instructions to make the process as straightforward as possible. BEFORE YOU BEGIN CricketID To complete your registration this season you will need a CricketID.  This should be in the name of the PARENT not the player.  Parents who have completed any Cricket Australia training modules will already have an ID which is an email address. The last part of the registration process requires you to enter the cricket ID (email address) so it is recommended you set up a new ID or confirm your login details at https://cricket-id.cricket.com.au/ before continuing with registration. Please note that the MyCricket numerical ID is no longer used with the PlayHQ system. Active Kids You are able to use an Active Kids voucher to register for cricket at Easts.  These can be obtained via your Service NSW account.  This will reduce the cost by $100.


Once you have your CricketID and Active Kids Voucher (optional) you can proceed to registration here:
https://www.playhq.com/cricket-australia/register/3a27ef The first step is to log into PlayHQ. Sign up for Play HQ here. Once again the first stage of the setup should be completed in the name of the PARENT. Once you have setup a CricketID and PlayHQ ID you can begin the registration process. The following links link will take you directly to the to the Easts Dolphins Registration Pages:

Products You will be asked to nominate a shirt size for your player based on the sizes in the chart below.  These are the same as last season and are relatively large   U15 and U17 Sunday competition players should also select to pay the Turf Competition levy here.  Whilst we are not able to make this a mandatory field based on the competition selection players it is compulsory for players participating in the u15 and U17 Sunday competitions to pay this levy during registration.  Players will not be allocated to a team until the levy is received.  The levy will attract an administration charge if processed separately. Step 6 CricketID Link your CricketID to your PlayHQ account – this only needs to be done once. Step 7 Payment On the left hand side enter credit card details.  The upper right shows a breakdown of your order.

What do I get for my money?

Registration fees include Easts playing shirt and hat, relevant association fees, council ground fees, insurances, use of appropriate cricket equipment (note COVID restrictions apply), use of Waverley as training ground, club coaches (Waverley sessions).   Additionally at Easts we provide age focused development opportunities through cross age group training with our junior high performance coaches.

What is the difference in the style of cricket played at Junior level?

Cricket Australia has published a comprehensive document outlining the formats to be followed for junior cricket.  They are working on ensuring that the format and style of game is consistent for all associations, clubs and schools across Australia.   The formats are geared to ensure an age appropriate approach to player participation and development and take into account the needs of parents as well as kids by having faster more inclusive game formats.

When do we play and when do we train?

The Master Blasters (formerly T20 Blast) (for U8 and U9) and the U10 play on Saturdays.  All other age groups play on Sunday (it can be either morning or afternoon)

As we have some 40+ teams in the local competition made up of kids from around the Eastern Suburbs we leave it to the coach and parents to decide what date and time suits for each teams' training.
