Superstars and Kiwi Grade Smashies

Superstar Smashies (Ages 4 to 6 years)

Superstar cricket is the entry level into cricket.  It is best suited to boys and girls aged 4 – 6 years old (School years 0 – 2) and is designed to help participants learn the basics of cricket in a suitable environment. Older children are welcome to join at this level if they are new to cricket but we also cater for ‘new to cricket’ players in the older grades.
Smash Play junior-tamariki is a cricket program for juniors that is being introduced for the 2024/23 season.
It is focused on providing quality experiences for all young cricketers. With a focus on gameplay and values, our aim is for cricket to provide enjoyment, alongside the social and personal development playing sport with friends brings.
With Smash Play junior-tamariki, every session has more hits, more touches, more catches, and more action. More fun.
All parents are encouraged to help, when they can, in these weekly sessions. Children get far more out of sports when their parents or caregivers become involved.  Parent assistance is appreciated.  If you are able to assist please kindly let us know.

Sessions are run on Fridays from 6 pm – 6:45 pm during the season.

Kiwi Grade Smashies (Ages 6 to 9 years)

Kiwi Grade cricket is suitable for players both boys and girls in school years three to four. Teams in Kiwi Grades are selected to provide a mix of abilities and schools as much as possible. Kiwi Grade is the step before you move onto hardball cricket.
Players are placed in teams of 8. This will be their team for the season. Players will play a game each week based on basic playing conditions which will revolve around fun. All players will have the opportunity to bat, bowl and field including wicketkeeping in each game.
Teams will require parent support for coaches, umpires, scorers and managers. These tasks can easily be done by one or two parents or shared around. Training sessions are run by the parent coach and can be set up during the week or prior to the game.
Games are run on Fridays from 5:30pm – 6:45pm during season.
