MILO IN2 Cricket is a fun skills program where no prior cricket experience is necessary. It's a great way for your child to meet other kids and develop a passion for cricket. They'll learn all the basics of the game and have the chance to meet some Australian cricketers in the process.
Milo Cricket Blast is where all the graduates of the IN2 Cricket program come to showcase their skills. For boys and girls between 8 and 12, you'll wear the same colours as your local big bash team and play T20 cricket just like your heroes. Each kid receives a MILO T20 Blast Participation Pack with a t-shirt, cap, bag, MILO giveaways and other KFC T20 Big Bash League items. You also get a free membership to the Aussie Cricket Crew, which includes access to exclusive games and competitions for members-only.
Breakers Junior League For girls 12
The Breakers Junior League is one of the newest competitions administered by Cricket NSW. There is a spring league between October and December and a summer league between January and March. It's open to girls of all skill levels and is a great way to make some new friends.
There you have it, some of the finest cricketing competitions in Sydney for kids of all ages. No need to book a flight elsewhere to see if your kid has what it takes to play for Australia.
