Cricket Blitz is an after school cricket competition that is held during Term 1 & 4 and is aimed at the social to semi competitive cricketer. In Blitz the rules of traditional cricket have been changed to focus on equal participation. All 8 kids in a team will bowl and bat for the same amount of time. The team plays on Thursdays from 4:00-5:30pm. Competitions will run 4-6 weeks, though the total number of weeks is dependent on the number of entries in the region.
