The two-day event held at Striker Indoor Sports and Fitness Centre and Trinity Waterford Playing Fields included four indoor cricket matches, two T20 matches and two skills sessions.

Participants travelled from all over Country WA, as far north as the Goldfields, and as far south as Albany.

Holly Pearse, former Country Girls Can participant and current aspiring coach from Mt Barker said the event will help build great momentum for women and girl cricketers this season.

“This annual event provides support and opportunities for our country girls who are wanting to get involved in cricket,” she said.

“I have learnt some great things off the back of this event, which I’ll take back to Albany and pass onto the girls as we look to create our first junior girls competition,”

WACA North West Regional Manager Andrew Hayes coordinated the skills sessions for the girls.

“I think the major takeaway was that the girls enjoyed learning new skills in an environment they wouldn’t have been exposed to without this opportunity,” he said.

“A lot of the girls finished the skills sessions amazed about what they had learnt, it was really great to see them walk away confident in themselves and their ability.”
