Mt Eliza Cricket Club Milo Cricket & T20 Blast Information

Hello All and thanks for you interest in Milo Cricket for season 2017. On this page you will find all information for what programs we offer at Mt Eliza. We have a great bunch of Coaches who can work with any skill level, get kids involved and most importantly have fun! So Listed Below is the programs that we offer:

Milo In’2’Cricket


For those new to the cricket scene Milo In’2’Cricket is the equivalent of the AFL Auskick program aimed at Boys and Girls 4-10 years of age. Mt Eliza holds Sessions on Saturday Mornings which go for about 90mins (9.30-11am).  We work on basic cricket skills which include Batting, Bowling, Catching and Throwing. The coaches also have a couple of funs games that everyone gets to do!

How it works the coaches will pair kids up into their age groups appropriately on the day. Groups of 10-15 kids each will rotate between 5-7 different activities during the evening with everyone getting to have an equal go at each activity. We encourage Parents to go around and join in activities with the kids, from our experience from running the milo program there is nothing better for the kids than having their Parent/Guardian join in and have a go! The coaches like to keep everyone on their toes so be ready for a few surprises through out the morning.

Once a year (weather dependent) we will have Milo Cricket at the beach, this is a really fun day which the coaches and the kids look forward to, there are lots of different activities for the kids to enjoy as well as games of beach cricket.

Every year we hold a special Christmas Milo Cricket that runs during the Clubs Christmas Party. The Kids get the opportunity to participate in front of the whole club. There is great food and entertainment including a jumping castle and cricket games on the night as well as raffles with big prizes we encourage everyone to stick around after Milo is finished to enjoy the festivities.

For just $85 a season you enjoy 8 sessions a year which run Saturdays in October to December a with all of the above included as well as receiving an In’2’cricket pack which includes Backpack, Bat, Ball, Sunhat, Shirt, Milo Satchel & Cricket Australia fixtures and offers.

What is T20 Blast? T20 Blast is a scaled down version of cricket matches for kids ages 7-10. Held on Wednesday Nights there is 16 overs per team which lasts about 75 minutes (Games Start between 5-5.30). Games are played on grass using a soft ball which means you can play it on any oval and the boundary’s are only 20-30m long which means you can have up to 4 games going at once per oval! There are 8 players per team with every player getting to Bat for 4 overs (regardless of how many times you go out), Every player gets to bowl for 2 overs.

Because games are played with a soft ball there is no need to go out and purchase cricket equipment and bats, balls, stumps and cones are supplied. Also the whole program is run by Cricket Victoria so all each team needs is 1 parent/guardian to look after the team and Cricket Victoria do the rest, No need to organize Equipment, Umpires, Scorers or Drinks.
