Flinders Cricket Club
The Flinders Cricket Club is a “Flinders Activity Club” under the constitution of the Matthew Flinders Anglican College Parents and Friends’ Association Inc. Although managed by parents and friends, the College provides support in many areas, including grounds (and their upkeep), practice facilities and some aspects of administration.
As an official cricket club, we have access to quality competition through the Sunshine Coast Junior Cricket Association (SCJCA). The SCJCA competition covers a number of age groups, including Under 10s, Under 11s, Under 13s, Under 15s and Under 17s. The Flinders Cricket Club enters as many teams at all levels as player numbers and availability of coaches dictate.
Currently the Flinders Cricket Club has a number of players and families from other schools.
