It is with much regret that Cricket HQ must again close its doors in line with the Victorian State Government Stage 4 Coronavirus restrictions. When we emerged from the previous lockdown we were overwhelmed with the positivity and support that we received from our loyal junior and senior cricketers plus local clubs. We hit the ground running having run 3 school holiday camps and both our Winter Programme and Victorian Junior Cricket Academy were in full swing. Never fear, we will be back and better than ever!   


We are again running school holiday cricket camps and have split the camps into Under 12 and Under 14 groups. Camps are limited to 15 players and the cost is $66 per session. All camps run from 9.30am to Midday.   


The Winter Programme is a structured cricket coaching program that runs for 10 weeks commencing the weekend of 27th & 28th June and running through July and August. Because children can have other weekend sporting commitments, we operate on both Saturdays and Sundays. Participants can attend either day to work around their other sporting pursuits.

The only pre-requisite to attend the Winter Programme is participants must be passionate about the game of cricket. They should be prepared to work hard to take their game to the next level. Most importantly, it’s NOT just for elite junior players, it’s for young players who want to build confidence and realise their full potential.
