The Complete School Cricket Experience

SPORTING SCHOOLS PROVIDER

We understand the importance for schools to be able to link their students with local sports clubs and associations, there are so many physical and social benefits of creating these links outside of the school but within the local community.

The Cricket Hub Tasmania is a registered provider of the Sporting Schools program through the state’s governing body Cricket Tasmania and Cricket Australia. This $400 million Australian Government initiative is designed to help schools increase children’s participation in sport and connect them with community sporting opportunities. This enables schools to undertake a cricket program from us with the backing of the Sporting Schools funding.

With this funding we can host your school at our purpose-built facility, or our coaching team can travel to you to run a cricket program focusing on developing your student’s catching, throwing, hitting and general fundamental motor skills. Our program is a fantastic chance for schools in our area as it gives children the confidence in their skills to one day participate in a sporting club outside of school.

As an added bonus, primary schools who hold a school-based session will receive a free 90-minute session at The Cricket Hub Tasmania centre, including two coaches and equipment – a $330 value.

OUR PROGRAM

Sessions can be structured in various ways to accommodate the specific groups. Our preference where possible is to create a coach/player ratio of 1:15. Our focus is on a high level of fun and engagement while introducing the fundamental skills of cricket to students.
The Cricket Hub is fully equipped with the latest in cricket equipment to facilitate an engaging program, this includes specific ball feeding machines to maximise participation.

The kids will enjoy developing skills and learning about cricket with activities including:

  • Batting with partner or Feed Buddy/Lobster machines
  • Bowling with partner or targets
  • Games: Indoor cricket, Cone reaction game, Star catching, Snowball tag, Catching joker, Batting tee game
  • Introduction to rules of cricket
