Girls cricket at Moonee Valley
Moonee Valley was a pioneer in junior girls cricket in the North West Cricket Association, but sadly lack of support from most other local clubs meant that the girls grade was discontinued.
Moonee Valley then set the model followed by the NWCA to integrate girls into mixed teams playing in the lower grades of each age group. Our Club continues to place girls together to play.
Our successful girls program, and the support of junior parents, led us to enter women's cricket in the Victorian Women's Cricket Association from the 2007/08 season. This ensures our junior girls have a career path with their cricket. We have regularly had junior girls playing in the Under 14s, Under 12s, Under 16s and Under 10s in mixed competition.
Training has an emphasis on developing the girls’ fielding skills. We anticipate some specialist coaching clinics for the girls throughout the season run by other coaches and players, and also allow the girls to try out with the club's bowling machine.

- Runners and shorts (or) track suit pants (remember scratchy pads)
- Water bottle, snack, sunscreen, a hat as weather dictates etc.
$175 per season – this is a one-off payment which is inclusive of all costs. Sibling concessions are available and other concessions may apply.
The North West Cricket Association's rules allow girls to play two years out of age group - so 12 year-old girls can play Under 10s cricket, 14 year-old girls can play Under 12s cricket, and so on.
The Moonee Valley Cricket Club provides the cricket gear required for the teams - bats, pads, helmets, gloves, etc.
Any girls (or their families) interested in finding out more about our cricket teams can send an email to the Club on email@example.com
