Girls and boys around Australia will blast their way into cricket this summer as part of Australian cricket’s MILO T20BLAST Program, as boys and girls in the Southern Highlands join their local MILO T20BLAST centre.
Designed for kids aged 8-12, over 120,000 kids will take part in MILO T20BLAST School Cups at over 600 days across Australia. Participants will be able to continue their cricket fun with Highlands Cricket Clubs offering the program to boys and girls in the Southern Highlands area.
Australian cricket wants to provide girls and boys with the programs to transition from schools to club cricket. MILO T20BLAST is the perfect way for kids to get active, and the fun and dynamic format will maximise participation and be the next step from MILO in2CRICKET to junior club cricket.
Australian T20 Captain George Bailey loves that girls and boys will have the opportunity to play in such a fun and exciting program like MILO T20BLAST.
“I love playing the T20 format and with it now being the favourite format for kids around Australia, MILO T20BLAST will be the perfect opportunity for girls and boys to have fun, learn some new skills and stay involved in cricket” Bailey said.
Commonwealth Bank Southern Star Meg Lanning also loves the program, in particular its focus on encouraging girls and boys to play together at a fun and exciting style event.
“I think MILO T20BLAST will be a fantastic program for girls to continue the fun from the School Cup Days to ongoing involvement in cricket,” Lanning said.
“The great thing about the program is that it’s fun, exciting and everyone gets to have a go every week.”
Paul Brockley Regional Cricket Manager Illawarra / Southern is excited about how the MILO T20BLAST program can develop cricket in the Southern Highlands area, “The enjoyment kids get from the MILO T20BLAST School Cup Days is obvious and this program is a great way to convert that fun into regular participation in sport.”

Highlands District Cricket Association starting Wednesday, 21 November 2012 from 5pm- 7pm on Bradman Oval, Bowral.
