With over 450 juniors playing in teams each week, Briars Sports has one of the largest junior cricket clubs in the area. The junior club has been running for over 16 years, providing many children with the opportunity to play cricket and develop lifelong friendships along the way.
Teams range from Under 5’s to Under 17’s and together form the Concord Briars Cricket Club participating in the Inner West Harbour, Northern Districts Junior Cricket Association and the Sixers League in Sydney.
The Junior Competition provides opportunities for young people between the ages of 5 and 16 years to play cricket in a non-competitive and competitive environment.
