The Mount Maunganui Junior Cricket Club is part of the Western Bay of Plenty Cricket Association, which feeds into the Bay of Plenty and Northern Districts Associations at a higher level. Cricket is played on Saturday mornings for almost all of our players up to Year 8, with a midweek practice after school (on Thursdays for most teams).
Our youngest players start off in our Superstars of Cricket Academy which provides one hour of cricket skills coaching from 4:00pm on Thursdays on the smooth hockey turf at Blake Park adjacent to the Bay Oval international ground.
To help you choose which grade your child should be in, here is a guide. We will be checking to make sure everyone is in the right grade to develop their cricket in a fun, fair and safe way. Superstars is played on Thursday afternoons; Junior (Div 1, 2, 3 and Intermediate) is played on Saturday mornings; and College and Senior is played on Saturday afternoons..
The fees to join our club are $80 per term for hardball (Div 1, Intermediate and College) and $60 for softball (Div 2 and 3) which includes some dedicated contact time with Head of Coaching Russ Williams), plus the cost of a uniform shirt and cap or hat. The uniform items are yours to keep once you've bought them. For our youngest new players (SuperStars), the cost is $25.
Our club shirts are high quality sublimated polos costing $45.00 each. The caps or floppy hats are $20 each. You are welcome to buy, sell or trade uniform items on our club Facebook page. Ask to join by searching Mount Maunganui Junior Cricket Club on Facebook.
Our committee works to keep our club at the forefront of junior cricket in the Bay of Plenty. This year our priorities are:
- Engaging a professional 'Head of Coaching' to develop our players and coaches
- Increasing the number of girls playing cricket
- Working towards a new club Operations Centre at Blake Park
- Ensuring we stay financially secure
